Ready or not here it comes!!

Doing the final count down until Christmas, no big surprise right? Every year it come,s and every year these last few days just kinda sneak up on me. I am for the most part ready. This year we are going to Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village on Friday night (Dec. 23). I am very excited to go. The historical village is decked out in Christmas finery all lit by candle and gas lamps. There are performers caroling, and going about the village in 1800's period costume. It will be fun, but it has cut my time short to get ready for the BIG Christmas eve party at our house, forcing me to be more organized this year, not a bad thing. 

And the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, 

Even with all of the goings on there is still quilting! Next up (drum roll please), a beautiful William Morris inspired applique. Feast your eyes on this beauty. I will have fun with this one.

I have been practicing some Arts and Crafts inspired quilting designs 

I wish for everyone to have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New year, full of love, laughter, and joy.
