Loose Threads: Christmas In August????

Christmas In August????

I know several of the blogs that I frequent have made hundreds or even a thousand posts.  So I decided to go to my blog list and see how many posts I've made since starting this blog.  I found 3 posts that were still listed as drafts.  I imagine that I stopped in the middle of writing and they were automatically saved.  Two of them were not finished, but this one was finished complete with photos.  So I decided to change the date and go with it.  This is from back in December. I thought maybe with the extreme heat that so many of us are having, the Christmas decorations and outside lights might cool you off a bit!!


I'm finding more decorations today. Here is a wreath quilt that I made back in the late 1990s. It hangs over the railing at the top of my stairs.

This quilt was made by my friend Gini and I. Gini and I got together to make a bunch of nine patches for charity quilts a few years ago. As we piled them in her sewing room, the red and green were stacked next to each other. I told her those would make a great Christmas quilt. So in a few days she came knocking at my door with this Christmas quilt. I machine appliqued the candy canes in the alternate squares and did the machine quilting. Every year when I unpack the decorations, this quilt always makes me smile.

Here is another crocheted granny square that my Mom made. This one has sparkles in the yarn.

This wreath is made of tiny little fabric "bags" stuffed with poly fill and tied onto a wire wreath form with red and green ribbon.


Hope you are finding some time to stitch today and that you don't think I've totally lost it!!!!
