So much to do, so much to look forward to. I was so happy this week when my five yards of Kona aqua arrived from Craftsy. It’s going to make a fun backing for my 30 balloon blocks.
I’ve been busy piecing the rows with lime green sashing. In fact, I got so excited adding side strips that I miscounted, attached too many and had to do a lot of ripping (they did not need a strip on both sides, only one.) I’ve also made some progress on my secret gift, which takes priority for now.
I did not put up my little Christmas tree and entire Bethlehem village, just to keep things simple for me and my family without Chris. But one of my favorite antique quilts just speaks Christmas to me, so it comes out to enjoy. It’s a log cabin Courthouse Steps done in some kind of heavy twill fabrics, probably from around 1900. It is done in red, tan, navy, dark green and a black, peach and white print.
From my home to yours a blessed Christmas, memorable family times and a Happy New Year!
