Festive Finds

So I’m getting ready for the holidays and I’m getting ready for a Holiday Bazaar.  The holidays are a piece of cake, I do it annually.  I’ve got it down.  The Bazaar however…

Getting ready means opening boxes, finding pieces, finishing pieces.  It means there is a mess being made before things become beautiful.  Isn’t that always the way?

In pulling pieces for the Bazaar I found this beauty.


A piece I did decades ago.

It is one of my favorites.  I may not let it go, but if I do, I just happened to find the instructions to create another one while I was looking for something else.


Why I haven’t made any other pieces from this little book is beyond me.  But I can assure you that there will be more this year.  These are nicely detailed runners that are not difficult to make.

And I found this book at a second-hand book store.  Talk about a score!  There are four patterns in this tiny treasure, so that makes each pattern a bargain at 50 cents each.  I am going to have to revisit this one.  There are at least two more patterns that have peaked my interest.  Don’t you love when that happens?



Then I found this!IMG_2063

Seriously cute and merry and bright.  I remember enjoying putting this together many years ago.  And lo and behold what do I find but this!

IMG_2072I already have one started!  It was tucked away with other gems that  you will see after the New Year.

I love the way this one was quilted!








Terry Burris puts a lot of thought and creativity in all of her quilting no matter what the size.  Her job is to make your piece shine.




So I’m excited and distracted and really wanted to share.

Happy Holidays!
