Christmas time is officially here. It's a time to spend with family, friends, go caroling, special times at church reflecting what Christmas is all about. All the colors that you see in stores, homes, churches, lights on houses, lights on the Christmas trees in the windows.
For several years it hung in the entrance at the church during Advent. I had quite a few compliments on this quilt and also on the quilting. I can say I am very proud of this quilt and glad I invested in the finishing kit and pattern and the time to finish it. Some day one of my children might hang it in there house and enjoy it as much as I do.
Christmas Wishes: Hoping your Christmas brings all your favorite things and a Great 2013, Happy New Year to all.

Carolea is very talented in a lot of areas. Another one of her hobbies is woodcarving. It’s always interesting to visit her because she always has a new project or projects going on. Christmas time is here and now there are Santa s, snowmen, different types of puzzles, wooden thread spools with Santa faces , misc all over her house. Now I want to talk about these puzzles that she carves. She makes different kinds, Nativity, Native Nativity, snowmen, dragons (latest one) and then she has a manger scene with a turtle. She has written a child's book on this turtle visiting the manager scene. It is the cutest story. The puzzle pieces are stored inside this box which looks like a stable, barn or whatever you want it to be. Inside the box are wood burning details. Each are different to go with whatever the puzzle is. All of them are so cute it's hard to pick just one favorite!
I know this isn’t about quilting but once in a while I have to take a break and talk about something else I really enjoy. I hope you enjoyed something different with this post!

Well Christmas is getting closer. If you're making gifts keep sewing! If you aren't making gifts try something new, a new technique, just learn to sew, take a class, etc.
Till next time............
