Making Friends


I thought I had finished my November Sweet Nostalgia block, but I see I missed stitching a little grass under the squirrel's tail.  Such a delightful stitchery, that I have already started stitching Santa, on the December block Checking the List...Naughty or Nice?

Only a few days left before the big day and surprisingly everything is in order.  The house is decorated, gifts are wrapped, baking is done and meals have been planned.  Today, I think I will make a batch of yummy Holiday Jewel Fudge and start binding my sister's Christmas quilt.

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

Until next year.....happy quilting!

I saved the pattern for this stitchery but have not done it. The vintage look of the design is wonderful.
