A Quilting Life block of the month 2021

I've been making Sherri's block of the month blocks this year, in 12" size.  It has been really enjoyable, I've been using soft pastel colored prints.  Here are the blocks on my design wall.

I won't be able to finish it before Christmas, I'll be busy enjoying the season.  

Have a very Merry Christmas!

The twelve days of Christmas

 I have wanted to do the twelve days of Christmas for over 30 years!

This year is the year!  I did a little research and found some ideas that I really liked.  I used Jeni Baker's pattern "Lined Drawstring Bag" and made the snack size.  I meant to make 12 of them, but somehow I only ended up with 11...That's ok, I'm just using a paper bag for the first day.  I found a cute little Nativity set on Amazon, the figures are 3" tall.  Perfect!

I think they're really cute!

This is my basket of bags, each bag has a tag on it with the name of the nativity piece and the scripture that goes along with it.

There are only 10 pieces in the nativity set, so I made some things up for Day 1 & 2.

You can see the paper bag, I have a battery candle inside and a picture of the Savior for Day 1.

Day 2 has an inspirational quote book inside.

I just love these little bags.  They are a little difficult to give away... 

I know the recipients will love getting a surprise every night and seeing their nativity come to life.

There is so much more happiness in giving than in receiving, although it's fun to receive too ❤️

It's going to be a busy 12 days, and the recipients have a RING doorbell so I'm going to have to be creative to stay anonymous :)

Enjoy every moment of preparing for Christmas ❤️

The Quilt Giveaway and Cute Grandchildren

Well, the quilt giveaway was successful!

I think all of my grandchildren were happy with their selections.

My son did an incredible job capturing all the excitement and anticipation of the activity ❤️

I'm not sure if the video is going to load, I haven't had success loading a video onto my blog for years!
