Day #8...the final day

 On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me. . .
The panel to makes this 12 days of Christmas quilt!

I know. Those aren't the right words, but sharing that seems mean.
We'll all just have that song on repeat in our heads for the rest of the night.

Daisey the wonder dog even got involved with the photo op.
Maybe not the best of help, but it amounted to a good laugh.

Letter of the day: "Z"

Thanks for joining along.
Remember we are open tomorrow (Sat. Dec. 6) from 10am - 3pm
and will have all these (and more) projects up on the walls with kits and patterns available.

We are also having that sample sale.  First come-first serve.
Samples on the table out front of the shop.

Day #7 on the countdown...all about JOY

  JOY: the feeling of great happiness

Aren't there so many things that bring all of us joy?
(at least I hope there are)

Simple joys like the smell of fresh bread from the oven, hearing a person laugh, seeing a person smile

Maybe hearing your favorite song on the radio, getting a phone call from a friend, receiving fun mail

Or maybe spending time with loved ones and friends, or being crafty with cotton/wool/pain/yarn

This new cotton wall hanging brought lots of joy to us as we pieced it together.

This you will probably see done up in our shop for fabric groupings to come as it is super versatile in changing out the center word and applique shapes.  PLUS it's charm pack (or scrap) friendly.

You'll get to see it's "mom" version tomorrow as it would use a layer cake and takes on a totally different look.

This rings joy. . .with the bells. . .or maybe the wine?

This simple and quick little woolfelt candle mat has turned multi-purpose in our house.

It can be used above showing off a bottle of wine during the holidays.

It can be the center piece for a candle or bowl of Hershey kisses to reside on the table.


It can set just like it is in the center of the table.

It too is perfect for using up wool scraps and is a quick one to make.
