My Wisconsin friends have a fun holiday swap each year. This year's project was a little doll quilt which I've been working on for weeks. I had a great plan to make a little thimble top using a very small Primitive Gatherings template.
This is one small thing!!
Sadly for me, the rows went together great. Putting the rows together was another story!!
When I went to sew the rows together, they wouldn't line up well. Grrrrrrr
I wasn't going to continue to work on this so I needed another plan for a little quilt! I scoured my books and settled on something from a book I've loved since day one! Any Wisconsin friends reading this should not continue reading. This is supposed to be a surprise!!
I did a smaller version of one of the quilts and I am happy with the finished product.
The binding is a light blue. Hopefully it'll make one of my friends very happy
In between working on this, I was playing with tiny postage stamp pieces which were a gift from Wendy Reed. I love this little top. I'd have used it for the holiday doll quilt, but it is too small. I'll have to keep it!!! Vbg
My dh and I brought our two grandsons with us last weekend to our Oregon hideaway and we had lots of fun with them in the snow.
My daughter is raising her kids Catholic and we, as you know, are Jewish. I've been explaining this to Ryan (now 6) but he has a tough time understanding. Not entirely, though!
He did tell me that since Santa wasn't going to be coming to our house, I didn't have to be nice!!
That kept me laughing!!
For those of you who didn't have a white Christmas, here is a look out our windows!
And Max loves to bury his face in the snow:
Here is nearby Mt Bachelor
Happy holidays to you all!!
