It’s Starting . . .

to feel a bit like Christmas!

I’m having so much fun working with all of these colors and prints.  Everything is getting pulled out and decided on for the quilt on the front cover of this book.

What do you think - plaids work for you??

I had a question from Donna (set to no-reply) asking which book this wall hanging by Nancy Halvorsen was in.

It is in the “I Believe” book by Art to Heart and this is the first of a few patterns that I want to make for this year.  There are also some wonderful Christmas card designs and that great card holder on the front cover.

Please grant me more time at my sewing machine . . .

I think the plaids will be perfect. I've thought a little about Christmas already too...have some quilts that need started now if they will be done in time. I love your new header...very pretty!

Oh I love the plaids! Gosh it feels surreal to be thinking about Christmas, but it will be here before we know it! The summer just flew by!

I love plaids, and am currently hooked up homespun, making up a bunch of homespun items for my house.

I too started sewing my Christmas projects this week...despite the 100+ degree temps here in southern California.

Beautiful job! I made the Christmas card holder last year ... love it! But then, there's not much of Nancy's that I don't adore :)
