I promise I'm still here....

But much of my sewing and crafting are gifts and I can't quite show them yet. I did finish my Birdie BOM for December which means I've completed all 12 block (actually 13 as I replaced the one for June). Now it is time to sew them together. That will wait until after Christmas.

I also participated in a Christmas Little Quilt Swap and here is what I made using  this tutorial. Can you see the little covered buttons? So cute!

I also want to mention that a few days after Christmas, December 28th,  I will be featured over at Sew We Quilt as a guest on Comfort and Joy! See the button on my side bar. I hope you all will hopped over there and see my tutorial.  I may be having a little giveaway here too so come back!  I hope to see you then.

Since I can't show too much of what I've been up to...I'll leave you with a few pictures from the cutest antique store...all decked out for Christmas!

A wall of woolen blankets!

baskets of shiny ornaments

more antique quilts

picnic baskets 

beautiful displays all around

There's not much time before Christmas now! I hope you all have time to relax and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas...the gift of baby Jesus!

  1. Love the Christmas Star Block. Thanks for sharing the link.
    Those birdies are terrific. Wish I knew how to embroider....maybe a new thing once I get a few quilts under my belt.
    That looks like an awesome antique store....where is it located?
