It's that time of year when we all should slow down and remember the reason for the season. Just Believe. A long time ago a human came to us and spoke the truth. So much so, that the world was changed forever, even time was started to be kept track of since his birth. The truth was written in the bible and every self help books was written to copy it's wisdom. You know the truth...smile.In my own small way in our home, I celebrate that glorious day and don't judge those that choose not to. Here's what you see when you open the door of my home. Our tree,filled with ornaments that mean something to us and some that don't.
Our kitchen table and my front room. I love Christmas carols. I don't think any other religious songs are as pretty as Christmas carols...well, maybe a few others.
These are crazy quilt Christmas Stockings I made several years ago. This is my tree skirt.
Then there's the shopping and you know what quilters like best: FABRIC. I'm all about supporting the small independent quilt shops and marketers on the internet and around the world. Here's fabric from Australia that I fell in love with and the really cool designs. I like juxtapositions-you know, things that shouldn't go together, but, do work together. This might be a great gadget, The Gypsy Gripper, I'll let you know. I plan to keep one for my mom and give one to the quilt group. I use the Alto's Quilt cut and love it. It has a built in holder so, I really don't need another one, I don't think. So why do I support the independent quilt shop? There's no free fabric or discounts in it for me. I get people that know my name when I shop, and I like that!
Here's a new Judy Martin book. I really like her work. I think she is not for the beginner quilter and I like that. I've never done a whole log cabin quilt, just a sampler block here and there, but, here's my book and I'll start one next year, I think. I also bought this kit. It has a Barbara Brandeburg pattern. I've read her blog a lot and am happy to support a fellow blogger, when I can. My niece is having a baby and they don't know what they are having. I thought owls are good, cause no matter what they have, it will be smart. Happy Quilting!
