Two Christmas patterns

Three things to be happy about:
(1) holiday recipes
(2) the smell of a Christmas tree
(3) gingerbread cookies

When I was at the Houston quilt festival in November I wanted to keep my purchases at a minimum because of the extra stuff I packed for the cruise.  I was so afraid of going over the weight limit!

Besides two t-shirts and a thimble, I only bought a pattern and two books - Undeniably Crazy and Postively Crazy published by The Buggy Barn.

This pattern of a Santa combined with a Christmas tree caught my attention, so I had to have the book!  If you click the picture it should go biggie size so you can see the detail.

I won't even start this quilt now because I know full well I won't get it done to hang this Christmas, so it goes on my list for 2015.

Something to look forward to!

However, I have this little pattern I downloaded late last year from Primitive Blessings website, which had dozens of patterns and drawings - dolls, scarecrows, houses, angels, stockings, snowmen, crows - things you could use all year long.

I went back to the site recently to look for new patterns but to my disappointment it's no longer there!


I made this one on a 12-1/2" background (can you see at a glance the little boo-boo I made!?).

It's a cute pattern, I thought of cutting it down smaller but I might just save it for a Christmas swap I'm signed up for.

But if I do make it into a small hanging, I'll do something simple for a border and let it be.

That's it for now, have a great Monday!  Sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. Cute Santa pattern - yes, save it for next year. I loved Primative Blessings and was dissappointed it is not longer, too. I do have some saved patterns from there.

  2. Very cute gingerbread men in a basket....and no....I don't see a boo-boo. Your block is great.
