The weather has still not brought snow but it is cold & windy. Last week there was an unusual day with stillness, no wind & the view of the reflection of Bay du Vin Island on the glass like water was beautiful. I grabbed my camera & the pups & out we went!
When they are outside though, the tables are turned & Baxter chases her everywhere!
I gave up on the two & headed for the house.
I can see you've had enough! lol
My Audience Being Patient
|So, so many flying geese to make this flannel nautical quilt, off to the longarm quilter next week!|
I've also been rug hooking some of my Christmas gifts, will show those on Christmas Day.
I've been finishing the Santa that Elizabeth gifted me with several years ago. This year it will hang up as a finished wall hanging.
I love Christmas and the house is starting to have patches of Christmas in it.
I added a pair of Chickadees that I have been making from felt & wool, they are all hand sewn in front of the TV at night.
And this is what my foyer looks like whilst I'm creating!
My bad, I should have hung the coat in the closet rather than leaving on the monkey chair in the foyer.
I decorated the great room staircase with faux evergreen, it looks so good on the white railing!
And yes that is a Christmas scene on the TV! I used YouTube with a three-hour tradition song list & it was wonderful!!
I also played with a free pattern, yes free, from www.connectingthreads.com it used charm squares & works up fast. I love miniature quilts for just that reason.
It is a Mari Martin pattern called November Little Quilt. It was fun to do!
Thank you for stopping by & seeing what I've been up to. I'm getting very excited about Christmas & seeing friends & family throughout the season.
I must make a trip into town to get the raisins to start the soaking of them in rum, for my Christmas Rumballs, Namama's recipe, now our Christmas tradition.
Hope this seasonal spirit grabs you soon if you don't have it already!
I like to smile as I look at people in public, & watch as it is so contagious & wonderful, to see someones frown...get turned upside down! Try it, it feels good!
Love doesn't make the world go round,
but it certainly makes the ride worthwhile.
Have a great week this week, you deserve it!
