Outside . . .
I decided to hang Folk Art Favorites in the foyer this year. It's not strictly a Christmas quilt but it's rich colors and imagery just said Christmas to me right now. It was designed by me and my friend Sandy Klop, now known as Moda's American Jane. And the books are on special this month.
And Jake's Rudolph quilt is on the back of my quilting chair. It's in the book Up on the Rooftop.
(And for some reason the book pages come up really slowly - but they do come up.)
So slowly but surely the house starts looking like Christmas and winter.
Only about a week and a half ago, this is what the living room looked like - not for long - but periodically through the day.
(Need I say it was deer season and the girls made it safely through again this year.)
Which made me think of showing you this. This is Block #1 of the 2014 Mystery Quilt in progress - parts still missing. I don't think showing you just this will spoil the Mystery. The quilt is called "Fall Festival" so that and the pumpkin should give you a hint.
If you're in the club now, you're automatically signed up for next year so you don't miss a single block. If you don't have time right now to do another BOM, please email Tori at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know so we can open your slot for someone else. We usually have a waiting list.
Tori has asked me to say that if anyone is missing a block to please let her know now. We're shipping out the end of 2013 and would like to get everyone caught up.
We also filmed another tutorial last Friday so it should be going up sometime in the near future.
Busy, busy, busy.
Saturday we go cut a Christmas tree - it's coming!
