Holiday Signs

For my final post on the Christmas markets I’ll share some of the signs we saw.

Again, I would certainly recommend going to the Christmas markets in Europe.  I would love to do this again!

Meaningful Gifts

Compassion’s Gift Catalog makes it possible to provide gifts to children in need; meaningful gifts that make a difference for entire families.

 

Small World

This is a small wallhanging I quilted by Jen Kingwell, called “My Small World.”   It was not easy for me, working with all these small pieces, but I finally finished it.  At 52″ x 33″ it’s just right to hang over a bed or table.  It would work well as a scrappy quilt, but I purchased it as a block of the month, because I wanted to use similar fabrics to the original.  Pinterest has lots of samples of this quilt to scroll through.
