I have a cow and I sew. Now how's that for hard to relate to.

Is it too early to start talking about Christmas?? I'm ready to break out the music!

I blame TV for my early festive spirit this year. Yesterday I caught about 20 minutes of what I would call a new holiday classic, The Holiday, starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Jack Black. I just love this movie, and was sad when I had to leave to take my son to a Halloween party (while watching a Christmas movie, see my dilemma!).

Now, if you're like me, you're just now starting on the ol' Christmas list, and if there is anythingon there that needs to be handmade/sewn, like there is on mine, then it's definitely time to start thinking Christmas-y thoughts. Actually, let's admit it. I'm already behind, and I haven't even started! November is awfully late in the year to be starting gifts. But I'll just put some of my favorite Christmas movies in the DVD player, and get to work.

Home Alone is next on my list! "I can't make ornaments out of the old fish hooks, with dry worm guts stuck on them!"

It's a new month!

Well...it will be a new month tomorrow! I'm going to start blogging a lot more, hopefully, but it might not all be quilting related. I want to blog about other things, cooking, family, etc., but don't want to maintain a bunch of seperate blogs, so I'm throwing it all on here.

I also have big plans to get much better with my photos. I know this is the Midnight Quilt Mom blog, but these dark, dreary pics just aren't cutting it for me. I've got to start taking photos in the light of day!

Here's one taken this morning (on my phone, mind you), of my sweet baby boy ready for some candy!
