I have just finished my Christmas shopping online and WHOO HOO! Everything will be delivered to my door. Here in New England it has been a cool 23 degrees, and I'm doing all my shopping in my jammies so I don't have to go out in the cold!
Have you been a good girl this year? Maybe Santa will fill your stocking with some great sewing gadgets.

I realized today that it is the third day of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights! If you are celebrating with your family today, you are probably not reading my blog.

Since it is Christmas time, I want to share this pretty quilt with you! One time at Quilt Festival in Houston, I spotted an antique quilt that I really, really wanted to buy.

Our latest holiday pattern using the Hearts and More templates is Christmas Baubles. This pattern is quick to make if you need a last minute handmade gift.
Wouldn't it be fun to cut circles out of fabrics containing your favorite animals? A kitty tree would be just adorable! Nancy Sullivan, one of my Certified Instructors, made her pretty quilt using bright red cardinals in some of the circles.

We are getting down to the wire, and if you are celebrating Christmas, I hope you are all ready for your holiday festivities this weekend! I have to say, I am a little behind the eight ball. I have spent more time sewing than shopping, and more time blogging than wrapping! Yet the hustle and bustle is nearing its end, and now I can get down to one of my favorite Holiday Traditions, making Christmas Cookies!

One of our sponsors of the Applique Design Challenge 2018 also sponsors a challenge of their own. The Quilter's Dream challenge is called Hopes and Dreams for ALS. This quote is taken directly from the entry form:
"Please donate a quilt to warm the lives and hearts of ALS patients while raising awareness and research money for ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease, plus have a chance to win fabulous prizes!"

It wouldn't be Christmas if I were not sewing a last minute gift! Today I am sewing Bowl Cozies for Christmas gifts for some very special people. Hopefully they read my blog, so I'm not going to say who they are for! The gifts are all finished and wrapped, but I made three extra just in case I missed someone on my list. Now that my gifts are finished, the wrapping is done, it is time to enjoy the long holiday weekend. I hope your holiday hustle and bustle is finished so you can relax and enjoy!! Merry Christmas!
