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!

Getting ready to start a big project with the Les Fleurs collection by Cotton & Steel! Lots of HSTs and I'm not totally sure about the layout yet...

So I FINALLY started cutting up my Les Fleurs fabrics. I’ve had the plan for a while now, but never actually cut into the fabric.

And by plan, I only mean I wanted a Half Square Triangle quilt…. I still haven’t decided on the layout yet.

I start listening to Christmas Music on Nov 1, and there's plenty of new albums to get excited about this year!

FINALLY!! I start listening to Christmas music a little early (at least I admit it) to really get into the Christmas spirit. My Christmas music listening dwindled in 2014 and 2015 because of the 1989 and 25 album releases…. I was listening to those on repeat for a while, and they conflicted with the usual festivity.

I don’t think there’s any major releases coming up, so I’m ready for all the new Christmas albums. SO MANY CHRISTMAS ALBUMS ARE BEING RELEASED THIS YEAR!

I’m so excited.

Ok, Let’s get started with my favorites of all time. View Post
