Twisting Turning Twelve

My Twisting Turning Twenty is now going to be a Twisting Turning Twelve. I decided that I'd rather a lap sized, and so I only used 12 of my 20 blocks. As you can see, I only had enough room on my design board for 9 of the 12 blocks. I think I'm going to like it when it's finished and I think that I'll add another 4 blocks and do a version of the Turning Twenty into Diamonds. Here's a picture in the left hand top corner.
They are both from the same book by Tricia Cribbs, Turning Twenty just got better. I'm working up my courage for Bonnie Hunter's Old Tobacco Road.

I haven't been too productive, but I have been working on a few things in the past week. The first picture is my Thanksgiving hand towels and napkins. I've done 8 of the gold napkins and 12 white napkins for the kids, and when I finished my DH got a brainstorm. Why not put everyone's name on their napkin. I guess that I'll be doing that.

The second picture is the next two blocks of my State Flower quilt. I still have to put the frames on them, and now I'm already behind again, as Florida and Georgia are out now. A woman's work is never done.
The last two messy pictures are the fabrics for my Twisting Turning Twenty quilt. The first is the lights with the dark swatches on top, and the second is the darks with the light swatches on top. I hope there is enough contrast. This evening I got the 20 blocks sewn together, and now hopefully tomorrow, I'll be sewing the lights and darks together and then cutting them apart into two blocks. I'm anxious to get that step done, and then see how my stripes will look. Here is a picture of Donna's from Donna's in the Attic.

I'm getting excited for the holidays. I haven't done any decorating for the past few years, and this year will plan to do a bit of it. I plan on having Thanksgiving at my house this year, although I don't know yet who all will be able to make it. I will have anywhere from 9 to in the 20's. Somehow, our family has a problem with commitment, and they usually aren't sure until it is almost here.
