This is number 7 of the Aunt Millie’s blocks. It was so much fun to make. I just hope it’s not too bright.
I imagine everyone in the US is busy this week getting ready for Thanksgiving. Hope everyone has the best day ever. I’m having my family in, then shopping on Black Friday. My daughter and I are up early and standing in line with all the other crazies. Not because we intend to buy as we have really cut back on our lists this year. But this craziness always gets us in the holiday spirit. Contrary to what you may have heard happened at some places last year, where we have been it has always been fun. People sing songs while standing in line, someone passes out hot chocolate or coffee, one year someone even distributed cookies! I remember how surprised I was the first year I went with my daughter. We were in the checkout line at one store, and three women in front of us had their cart stacked high. Not so high that they couldn’t put their pancake breakfast plates from McDonalds on top of their purchases and enjoy breakfast while waiting. What a hoot. Usually people come dressed in Santa hats or wear something with bells to jingle. It’s been a great experience for us and I hope it is for all of you shoppers this year too.
When you're out shopping, don't forget to stop by the Attic Window Quilt Shop and take part in their Turkey Sale.
Since we’re talking about the upcoming holidays, you might find this Candy Cane tutorial at Lavieen Rosie interesting. I thought these candy canes would make excellent stocking stuffers, or be cute hanging on a tree, or tied to a package. Check it out.
Until Next Time, Happy Quilting,
