HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!!


Happy Holidays to all my friends !! I wish all of you had a nice Christmas and enjoyed your dinner with your loved ones .  I had a busy time trying to cook all day ,I made my pumpkin pies and my sweet potatoes which I can't go without and of course we had a nice big turkey with all the trimmings.  I am the only woman in the house so I had my hands full ,woke up at the crack of dawn to accomplish my task. I was so exhausted at the end I slept good and a little bit of wine with dinner helped,everything was delicious .  I had  a bit of time to decorate a small tree ,but I forgot to take a photo of it can you imagine.   I really wanted to show off some of my Hallmark collection of decorations which I collected while living in the states back in the late 80's .  I used to get in my car and visit all the Hallmark shops in my area and sometimes travel further to other cities the day after Christmas to get them half price . Yes I was a junky so I have about 4 boxes of them and just wanted to show some ,is anybody else out there a collector ? 

On the FMQ I finished a quilt in that manner around the trim of this quilt ,and now I will be sewing the binding by hand . I am really getting the knack for it and am trying out different stitches, how do you see it, well I am still a little shaky and there all plenty of areas that are not so smooth ,but as a whole it doesn't look so bad.  I wish to all the best  and a Happy New Year !! and plenty of quilt finishes.

I will keep you in mind when I see Hallmark ornaments in the thrift shops. You may get a box from me someday! Your fmq is lovely. I think that when it's not perfect, it adds a more charming, personal touch.
