The start of the week-end!
The next clue in Bonnie’s latest mystery.
Most of these I’ve finished in the last 6 months. I stack them up and when I get a few I’ll take them to the local quilt shop that collects for Project Linus.
This is a great way to try out new quilting patterns…sometimes it is just a little mindless sewing…I love the tumbler quilts for this. The panel quilt I just finished binding…it goes, too!
Friday also brings the prep work for tomorrows gathering. This is most exciting because the kids are coming to decorate the house for Christmas.
When we were remodeling I bought a small pre-lit tree…..lovingly refered to as the Christmas Twig. It was smallish, and all you had to do was pluck it from the box, hang an ornament or two then plug-in! A lot different from our 8 ft artificial tree…the 8 footer takes a lot of work, first to get it together, string 800 lights and hang a bunch of ornaments. Last year I was recovering from a little medical procedure and suggested the Christmas Twig in lieu of the big tree….Our kids came out and decorated…it was great! And it looks like they had a good enough time that it is becoming a tradition!
Now I should mention that Christmas Eve is always here. And they really hated the Christmas Twig. We feed them pretty well and it is adults only….very relaxed and fun.
So, the ribs are rubbed and waiting. The entire meal is ready to go. I have a little time to play!
Do I load the Pick up Sticks Quilt? The borders are on and I could get this one done.
