Multiple Updates


I have been very busy with Thanksgiving and making scrapbook pages of my mother's life.  I'll save sharing those to another day and for my Genealogy Blog.  And having my blog give away.  Thanks to all those who have joined in the fun already.


For the last two weeks I have been working on a new Christmas wall hanging, and not the Moon Santa.  I might get to him today. 

 The pattern I am working on is called Christmas Charm by Mount Redoubt Designs.  I couldn't get their link to work this morning to add it to the post. 

 There are 4 big blocks and two small blocks.  At first I was only going to fuse the pieces down and then I just had to machine applique them down.  The machine applique makes it looks more finished and give the blocks more dimension. 

 I have three blocks completely done and a fourth started.  I still need to make a Santa & Holly.  

Yes I am using some of my favorite type of fabric, Batiks.  Some of these are actually Christmas.

It will be charming when done. 

I have started decorating for Christmas, the curtains are up one quilt is up.  My youngest son is moving out today, so I can put the recliner in his room, so I can put the tree up. 
Things on the shelf
Mr. B. is making progress in the man cave and has moved all his small tools to the shelf.  He has more wood on the ceiling and the space really came in handy for Thanksgiving dinner.

Beautiful applique blocks and I agree that stitching around them really accents them. The Christmas tree is my favorite and I know what you mean about cutting into batiks!
