Holiday Favorites Blog Hop 2019

Welcome to my corner of blogland during this

Thank you for stopping by.

For quilters, the Christmas season
gives us an opportunity to CREATE!

We make things for OUR homes
and then make things for others!
We are MAKERS after all.

Making is my favorite thing about the holidays.

I love getting this quilt out and hanging it every year
in the family room.
I designed it a few years ago using
a crate and barrel gift box for inspiration.

Yes....I have a quilt on the sofa.
I bet you do TOO!

These little scrappy trees are teeny tiny.
No scrap is TOO SMALL for me!
These are the kinds of things
I like to make and give away.

This one's a bit bigger.

There's a little HOW TO video here
on how I made this one.

These little snowmen
were made by the kids a long time ago.
I love pulling them out and remembering 
my BIG kids were once LITTLE.  

I sewed the snowmen leaving an opening for stuffing.
The kids stuffed, drew on the faces
and made little scarves from scraps.

The black hats are SOCK scraps
that we sewed together.
SUPER simple!
Yes...You're going to find fabric EVERYWHERE here.
Even above this ceramic nativity.

I gave this Christmas quilt away last year
after making it using orphan blocks.

Christmas is for MAKING.
Christmas is for GIVING.

The two go HAND in HAND.

Here's a list of the blogs participating
