Block 12 & 13 Magic of Christmas…

Good Evening Everyone…

Just want you all to know we all just finished a H-E double toothpick of- week!  That’s I why I have not posted any new MOC blocks…now remember… I told you early on there were going to be gaps and times when they come day after day and then not so much…but rest assured…we will get them all done by the end of November!!!

I did not mention this but I am going to now…sooooo I have to go to CA after Houston to teach a bunch of wonderful ladies coming all the way from New Zeeland…they are coming to our CA shop and we are so excited to have them!!! But that means I will be gone for over two weeks, coming home NOV 11…then what happens in November?  Right our biggest event!!!! Primitive Christmas…when you get patterns and pincushion kits and those cute mugs!!! So my point here is I have designed/stitched all(4 this year)the projects for this AND about 5 extra ones…that I am saving for this event!!! So really it was fun, but at the same time…very brutal….this was A LOT to do plus all the new designs from Liberty Gatherings my newest Moda line that will come out in FEB/2017 ….I will be posting about these soon too…now that they are all back from the quilters and much prettier now… and will be hanging in Houston for all the shop owners to see and buy for their shops…so…to keep you busy for the next week…while the graphic designer is gone to Mexico this whole next week..(thanks Teri for working late today…I know you wanted to be gone by three….we appreciate all you do for us!!! Make sure you have a margarita and enjoy the sun!!!)  But she managed to sneak these two blocks in today! I’ve double-triple, checked them for printing errors and can’t find any…so fingers crossed there are none…

Two easy ones…this time…LB






Oh…almost forgot…some Fall decorating…some of you wanted to see…I just did a little this year….we had some nice Fall days….

Here is the back of the house that does not face the water…

Planting Spring bulbs!!! Can’t wait to show you next Spring…I don’t remember them being this hard to plant!!!!!! Still waiting for more to arrive they better hurry!!!

    Love your yard//porch/dogs…thanks for squeezing in our Christmas blocks. You are too much! Love that you have peep’s coming from New Zealand! Wow – that makes me feel pretty tickled since Australia and NZ produce such great quilters and designers. Way to go!! Try to squeeze in some down time!

    Your home could easily be the “dream” home I would design for myself………….there is not one thing I don’t love about this. Keep the photos coming. It has been awhile since we got a peek. Christmas decorations will be exciting to see. You have been very blessed and you deserve it.

    Aren’t boxers great! Jeter looks to be such a good boy! We own a female, Rusty and couldn’t be luckier!

    Lovely new blocks for the Christmas quilt. When Teri gets back from her trip is there a way she could add the save icon to the pattern pdf so we can save it to our computers? These only have the print option.
    As to Houston…it is still in my dreams to go to this show one day. Seeing so much creativity in one place would be a wonderful thing!
    Happy Stitching and I hope your market and show go well.

      I save these to my computer as a pdf file now. Have you tried right-clicking on the pattern? The term “save as” should pop up and you can save from there. At least this is working for me. I’ve saved both the color and b/w versions to a computer file.
