We Have a Mouse

Our sweet little Sugar Lump tried to eat the gingerbread house. While visiting, our little guy and Sug made the house with Grandma Cookie's guidance. Apparently, all the frosting goodness was too much temptation for her two year old tongue. She took a nibble off the front gable, well, a chunk.

Hope your decorating is fun or funny as in my case!

For our big girl for Christmas. . . got the quilting done yesterday and now need to bind it. Can't wait for her to see it. The charms are from Joann's and I used some black swirl I had on hand. . . and of course the back and white cotton. Love the patterns and think I will quilt it on the diagonal to support that pattern. When I finish, I'll post the whole thing. Oh, how I love presents:).

I love all the bright colors in this one and how the white blocks and the linen border showcase all the hues. How to quilt it though? I love it so much, I'm thinking I should send it out, but maybe I can do something simple that would keep it lovely. If you have ideas, please do share them with me.

Hope you are enjoying the cheer of this season. We spent a lovely evening with kiddos and friends last night. The food, the decorations and the fun of conversation have me in the spirit! Happy Holidays:).

Christmas Tree Quilt

Tree Quilt 2

I had some scraps left from Candyland Christmas so I thought I would try a large version of my tree block. It turned into a nice lap quilt. I freehanded the little snowflakes that quilt the white space. They do the job, but I'm not sure I'm in love with it. More practice would solve the problem, I'm sure.

Hope you're getting into the mood of the season and getting your projects for gifts finished.
