I started this with blue flannel and red sweatshirt fabric. I was moving happily along when I ran out of the blue flannel! I had other flannels, but didn’t want the edges to look out of place, so I cut up a bunch of old jeans and finished up the quilt that way. I used white cotton for the hand tying, but I’m not sure I like it. I may have to learn to machine quilt. What do you think? Does the hand tied look take away or add to in this case?
Brown paper packages, tied up with string…naw…too grown up. Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes? Sure! Warm woolen mittens? You bet! But the warm fuzzies that these glassy ornaments bring is a WAY favorite thing! I have seen photos of them on etsy, or pinterest and thought, Why yes! I must have them. And WHAT to my WONDERING EYES did APPEAR?
But lots of them everywhere! As basement finds, gifts, and thrift store loot! Oh Merry Christmas to ALL and to ALL a GOOD NIGHT!
