Really Random Thursday--Christmas in September

I can hardly believe that I am actually doing Christmas sewing ahead of schedule! That's not my usual MO, for sure. A new book and pretty fabrics have enticed me to make a new Christmas tree skirt.
 Oh, it has been such fun to make. And cleverly simple, as well!
 It's one of those time when you say to yourself, "Oh, that's how she did that!". Love that.
 To keep me company and to "kill two birds with one stone", as my mother would say, I've been listening to an audio book checked out from my local library. So good!
 Sometimes when I sew, I have to take breaks for company...
...or to see what the mailman has brought me.
And sometimes, I just think about my good friends and the fun we have together. (Yes, it usually involves eating...another favorite thing of mine!)
 Check in tomorrow for a view of my finished project (sort of), a book review and a chance to win a copy of the book. 

 I'm linking up with Live a Colorful Life for Really Random Thursday.
