Almost There

I can hardly believe that there are only 2 more days til Christmas.  It seems like December has been a blur, but I have enjoyed every minute of it.  And there is still more to do.  My friend has had a foreign exchange student living with their family for the last 3 years.  This year the young man has started college and is coming back to visit for the holidays and bringing his mother.  She does not speak much English.  I offered to help my friend entertain her guests as the mother would like to experience a traditional American Christmas.  This cracked me up as my friend and her husband are spending Christmas at their son's college dorm.  He is an RA and has to stay at the dorm through the holidays.  After she takes her Christmas dinner to the dorm, they are going to the movies.

I finished my last little snowman block.  See my previous post for the link to this pattern if you would like to make some too.

I also got the binding on this 12" Merry block from the 100 blocks magazines.

When I put this little hanger on the wall, I failed to remember that we move all the furniture so there is room for the Christmas tree.  That means my little quilt will be viewed through the lamp shade!  LOL.  Live and learn.

Hop on over to Judy's blog  to see more great designs.


  1. What pretty holiday decorations. Enjoy your traditional American Christmas.

  2. Your little quilts are fun and festive. I especially like the striped binding. I've never used a stripe for binding on the straight of grain, but I am liking the effect it creates--even from behind a lamp shade. : ) Good idea.
    Merry Christmas to you, Kris.

  3. Merry Christmas! Love both of your blocks.

  4. Your blocks are so cute! Merry Christmas!
