My Scarlet Quilt is finished. I love all the quilting by Susan at Suzy Q's quilting; and how the scalloped border turned out.

You can find it here.

I believe Jesus Christ is the son of God and was born in Bethlehem all those years ago. I believe He lives and that our lives will be more worthwhile if we make room for Him. I believe He wants us to be His hands in helping and lifting our fellow man. My wish is for you and your families to have a very Merry Christmas.


Remember when I posted about the Secret Santa Swap? My package from Lucy in Missouri came this past weekend. It was wrapped in red and white polka-dot wrapping.....LOVE THE RED!

Everything was connected to the word, HO, HO,HO. Including homemade fudge!!!

This is a very bad yellowish picture, but the doll is made from little tiny sweet. And homemade soap that you can just barley see in the right corner.

The doll is an ornament! Thanks Lucy!

You must check out Michele's blog. These snowflakes are made from junk mail. The projects on her blog are SO clever!

This is my favorite rendition of this song. I love their a cappella harmony. Do you know what kind of an "ear" that takes! LOVE IT!

It is an interesting time of Christmas when you are all alone without children or grandchildren for Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, although our children and grandchildren are coming the day after. In trying to make for a Christmas feeling, I decided to make us new Christmas stockings....bigger than the last ones!

This year we are filling stockings for each other....the rule is, everything must (should) fit in the stocking. We are going to watch Christmas movies, eat junk and perhaps invite friends over Christmas Eve....Christmas day, we will go to church and celebrate the Saviour's birth. I hope your Christmas is memorable.

EDIT: Sorry, this is a combination of two patterns and some ideas of my own.

Can you believe one person can make this many owls? They were SO FUN to make!

Friday, December 2, 2011


Several people have asked about the owl ornament I am sending on my Santa Swap. It is found in this darling book called, Christmas Crafting In No Time by Claire Youngs. I saw an ad for it in a magazine while I was at Barnes and Noble. They didn't have it in my store, but ordered it and it came direct to my house and was cheaper because I didn't have it go the the store.

This is the back, aren't those owls the cutest?

I looked on the Barnes and Nobles site and this is the cover on their site, so it must have a couple different covers but same book! I love mine and plan to make a lot of the crafts inside! Hope you can find one too!
