C is for Christmas. First up - Christmas past, the one that just passed.
For several months, I teased pictures of the progress of this quilt. It has been pieced, quilted, bound and even labeled for some time. And on Christmas morning it went to its new owner The Intended (formerly known as Boyfriend) While I don't honestly believe that he spends his free time reading my blog, I didn't want him to happen on a revealing post over The Princess' shoulder. On Christmas morning I happily gifted him the quilt and then IMMEDIATELY asked for it back so I could use it for show and tell . . . . welcome to the family!
Now for Christmas present,
which came in the form of a little package from Cathi of Shakerwood Quilts. She very sweetly sent me a kit of her hand dyed wools and one of the new Christmas designs by Cheri Payne. Want to pick up some delicious hand dyed wool of your very own? Check out Cathi's webstore.
As a bonus, when I walked into Fat Quarters Quilt Shop last week, one of the very first things my eyes landed on was a kit of the cottons for the very same design.
Now for Christmas Future,
I plan to join Cathi this month (as as many months as it takes) on Rudy Day to work on this project with a hope of having a new Christmas quilt for 2012. What a fun way to keep Christmas all year long.
