Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! I have to confess that ever since I got on Facebook and Instagram I have been a bad blogger, no excuses, it’s true! I have also been trying to get my pattern business going (see Quilt Market posts, here, here and here) but the hullabaloo around the Holidays plus Christmas Crafting have totally derailed my efforts!
Made some homemade tags with Diana, we had so much fun!
Packed shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.
Started making use of all my saved scraps by working on this Rag Wreath on Sunday afternoons while visiting family.
Saw the Fair Isle quilt pattern by Freshly Pieced and I couldn’t resist. I got the fabric from Pink Door Fabrics she even helped me figure out the best colors! I discovered this little shop on Instagram.
While I was in Jury Duty, I did a little Charlie Brown embroidery recognize this tree?
And was thinking up another quilt project…
I tried out a little fast craft using an inexpensive frame and buttons.
Varied the design for the kids church craft. 10 minutes flat. No LIE!!
I made this great vintage table runner using A.E. Nathan fabric collection called Ole Saint Nick for Miriam. Enjoy!
I really love doing #30lists , it’s my end of day treat. I know it’s crazy but it makes me focus and slow down.
Put up our Christmas tree.
Made these little pillow covers for the cutest little guy, Liam.
Made some yummy sachets
using Balsam Fir from Maine. You can get some here.
Hardly did anything with my 6th pattern. Bad girl.
I finally got to take out my Vintage Holiday quilt (Pattern by Camille Roskelley for Thimbleblossoms) which I finished just after Christmas last year. Check out more about that quilt in progress here and here.
I had to take some time to appreciate December in Florida; neat clouds in the sky and the Christmas Palm.
So it’s been a busy month! Lastly, I played with a little thread to wish you
A Very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, peace and joy and a Happy New Year!!
