The latest Harry Potter movie was on HBO last night, I had it on while I was doing something else. Part of my ear caught the tag end of a conversation that cracked me up:
Harry, Ron and Hermione were in an elevator in somebody's bodies - who knows what they were up to, I was busy - and Ron is going "Oh my God, what'm I going to do?? My wife is all alone downstairs!" Harry: "Ron... you don't have a wife." Ron: "Oh, right!"
Someday I'll write a book and I'll call it Conversations Overheard in an Elevator.
After reading Michelle's post on Stash yesterday I visited the Celebrate Christmas blog again and really liked Happy Little Trees by Charlie at Qubee Quilts. It's a just-right size that can be done quickly for Christmas. My Christmas fabrics are all old-fashioned (not part of a "collection"); I pulled a few, looking for possibilities...
these have gold highlights; it looks kinda funny on the green, doesn't photograph well
This fabric is cute, but I want to go for a different sort of mood...
I believe the nutcrackers fabric on the left is out of print; I've had it for a few years! Same thing goes for the Santas, I think it was a Coca Cola print.
Now when I looked at this next scrap I thought the pattern would make a cute quilt...
See how the reindeer seem to be looking at the trees? It would make a cute wall hanging!
And who knew I had so much BLACK Christmas fabric??
This one with the reindeer is sorta pretty.
Because I bought such a big piece it tells me one of two things: (1) I intended it for a backing, or (2) it was 70% off so I took all that was left on the bolt. There's a lot of this one too:
Country angels, probably bought for the same reason! And I also have it in a beige colorway.
Well, I have a little time to decide which fabrics to use... or if I will even make the quilt, cute as it is.
I don't want to fall behind on my Guild's Red and White challenge, so if I do the Happy Little Trees it will be done alongside the challenge quilt.
Have a great day everyone ... sew forth and sew on!
