I know the “holiday season” has ended, but I wanted to share my 2016 Christmas details before they’re too far past. didn’t really feel like sharing them during December 2017…
Christmas Eve Morning
Stef and I started the day off well by playing at the Cafe during breakfast. The store is open from 7-3 for customers picking up their Christmas dinners, and we love playing music to spread the holiday cheer!
Looking forward to next year, because we realized our favorite duet publisher came out with a new Christmas book! No one ever complains, but we’re a little bored playing the same songs each year…
Every time I visit my mom’s house, she mentions she doesn’t have a Christmas quilt yet. Well, it’s finished! I bought a charm pack from Moda’s Jol Collection earlier in the year and fell in love with the little reindeer as well as the Scandinavian color scheme. My mom loves all things grey and white, so it was perfect!
Inspired by Then Came June’s star quilts all over her Instagram account, I made the star in a solid, with the Jol pattern around it. With a flannel on the back, I love love love it!
Last Christmas Eve I was sewing until the very last minute. I finished this dress 20 minutes before we left for my family’s Christmas Eve party! Everyone loved it and couldn’t believe that I made it!

If you’re reading this blog, there’s a possibility you’re a sewist and you know what you want for Christmas… but if you’re looking for a gift for that crazy crafty cousin, then you’ve come to the right place! Here’s a compilation of my favorite tools and books that would be great for any level of sewist!
Gifts for Sewists:
A few months ago my mother-in-law found a few quilt blocks that she hadn’t assembled. She started over 20 years ago and then left the blocks in the attic.
She gave me more yardage of the fabric, and I was able to finish it up for her birthday!
