some cutting etc
I am going with a shortened Christmas tree for one of the Dresden Plate blades for the tree skirt, using the "Charley Brown Tree" Button Up like the one I already made in Nov. 2011, as a start. I am using a couple of the fabrics that were in the Sweet Saint Nick line at Connecting Threads and use stash for the star and flower pot I plan on appliquing. The original pattern had you piece in the tree holder----no way! This blade will be less "busy" than the twister blade was.
I just found out that my lefthanded blogging friend and her friend the "other Linda" are going to do another "Leisurely Turtle Race to Christmas with Squirrels Allowed" (or LTRTCWSA) for 2013. These two were trying to get me to join in but I had other stuff going on----when don't I? BUT this starts immediately after this just past Christmas so I may have a leg up with these two tree skirts and my plans to finally complete my version of the Oxmoor House. Now I have to tell you that my lefthanded blogging friend has done some swaps with me and some of her previous projects have and will be coming to my house. The girl loves scraps and I can accommodate that! Want to join in----you got till November 30, 2013. No rules either! This year they called it a draw---you are done when you say you are done, LOL.
Starwood Quilter and part of my Christmas gift money from the Bama Belles. Isn't it pretty? Better than the thumbnails I posted the other day. THX y'all!
The next thing I know it will be time to start supper! I already had to make one meal already today (spinach pie) plus threw some chicken in the crockpot to make some chicken noodle soup earlier today. I may go with the soup and save the Seafood Creole idea for tomorrow instead. Some of the fish needs to thaw slightly anyway. Ambivalent.
And sew it goes------
