This is what it looked like when the storm cleared late this morning. And a very tired husband had gotten safely home from Kansas City. So it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.......
But not quite yet - still some wrapping and baking to do.
And a great early Christmas present from Missouri Star Quilt Co. -
our Needleturn Applique Tutorial is finally here. This is Cedar Creek and if you click on the pictures to the left, you can watch the U-Tube videos Jenny and I made. ( I like the one where I have my glasses on best. I don't have quite the vacant stare when I can see :). I've had a lot of requests for teaching videos so I designed this little quilt to teach the basics. Then Jenny from Missouri Star and I teamed up and her sons shot and edited the videos. Really good job, boys.
And this is a "sneak peek" at the Mystery Quilt for next year. I've been playing with colors. Each month you will either get one large applique block or a smaller applique block and some pieced houses & trees. It will be $27.50 a month and that does include shipping (except for the month we send the borders). If you want in on the fun, email Tori at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 816-632-7632. (Do remember if it just rings and rings, it doesn't mean we're not there, it means were on the phone - crazy Century Link). If you belonged to the Mystery Quilt Club this year you're automatically on the list next year unless you tell us you want off. And since we're heading for the holidays and had a major snow storm, you may get the answering machine. If so, leave your number and Tori will call and sign you up, probably after Christmas.
Time for wrapping and baking and merry making. Children and grandchildren due. We have 2 out of 3 vehicles stuck in the snow drifts at the moment and AAA can't get here until tomorrow.
Ah well, guess that means I'll have time to stitch :)
Merriest of Christmas to you and yours.
