It's Beginning to look alot like Christmas here in blog land- take a look at these blogs today, then catch up from yesterday with paper pieced blocks and more.
For some music to put you in a Christmas mood click here ( it will pop up up in another window) and then you can hop back over and listen whilst you gaze upon my Christmas blocks
I was a bit frantic as today approached! It must be Christmas :)
I have had 2 of my blocks done since before I knew about this hop and I put them in a safe place ( sounds like what I do with all my Christmas gifts too) and I forgot where I put them! Thankfully the LORD knew and He reminded me this morning- why is it we always wait to ask Him? I found the bag right where I put it after playing with my paper pieced block.
Next is my present block. If you are around me any length of time you know I love to wrap presents. Last Christmas, Sunshine Boy informed his mama that Aunt Bobbie says" its not wrapped without a bow"- he now has his own box of ribbons and is in charge of wrapping presents! Well, I found package blocks and I found bow blocks but I didn't find one I liked, so guess what? I made up my own pattern.
|it's hard to tell from the picture|
(and because i forgot to press the blocks before taking pictures)
but the bow is 3D
I took two patterns and smooshed them together.
Judy1522 who said Thanks for sharing your blocks. My favorite is the one with the heart that background fabric is perfect
