Where has the time gone, it's been a week since my last post. I don't feel caught up at all. I still have shopping, wrapping and baking to get done this week. No sewing for me...sigh. I feel so over whelmed this time of year. This week my daughter and I will be spending the day together baking Christmas cookies...I'm really excited because I don't see her enough. She usually has school and work but now she's between semesters at school. I also need to finish some knitting for my daughter, hopefully she will get a pair of socks on Christmas.
Last night we had a fun evening of singing Christmas Carols with MIL and FIL, the audience was part of the caroling and some people were even dancing in the aisles. When it came time to sing 12 days of Christmas the audience participants with singing and standing up when they get to your birthday month and then you sit again until they get back to your month. So having a Feb birthday gave me lots of exercise. On the second day of Xmas my true love sent me Two turtle doves, I was up, down, up down. You know how the song goes. It was truly a lot of fun. Here is a Christmas Angel quilt. My first log cabin quilt done in the early 90's. The angel is all made of log cabins and the trees, stars, her face and shoes have all been appliquéd on top.
This little tree skirt I found recently in my "to do" pile. I made this oh...I'd say well over 10 years ago. I still need to finish the binding....that's very silly since I do like hand sewing bindings.
I really like this Santa wallhanging. He is done with wool and appliquéd on sandcastle fabric. He's got a long fuzzy mustache.
I can't believe it, my next post will be my 100th post. I was planning a giveaway but it's too much for the week before the holidays. So if you don't mind waiting until Jan, I'll have something in the new year.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
