Today’s block is from Jo…called Framed Star….Please go and visit her BLOG for the printed instruction.
I have to admit that when I read the name of the block…my mind had formed in an opinion of what I thought this block was going to look like…so I took some creative liberties and added the 2″ star in the middle to make mine a little different….that is the only thing I have changed here…removed the 2 1/2″ square in the center. I hope you like it!!!
I have started my holiday season by attending/teaching at a retreat called…The Spirit of Christmas…we have 42 quilters attending on the Outer Banks of North Carolina…hosted by the Old Green Cupboard girls…I will try to do daily posts on some of the goings on…but it is a retreat based on putting Joy back in your Christmas…lots of gift ideas, recipes, decorating and so on and on…but back to the question…when I return…the prepartations will commence!!! I am shopping a little bit here…Nick and I are doing 25 gifts- one for everyday leading up to Christmas, we are trying something differerent this year…now as I explained to Nick…they don’t have to be high dollar items…can be simple like a favorite candy bar…or gift card to dinner or maybe a pair of small thick hoop diamond earrings at Kesslers….ok maybe a few over the top gifts!!!!LOL…
I am blogging on an iPad and I have to admit I do not know how to navigate real well…I miss my laptop!!!
