Moda Blockheads….Block 39


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!!!

This weeks’ question is…Have you started your Christmas preparations? Baking? Shopping? Made a gift-wish list for yourself?

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!!!

  1. lovely block and I like the added star! I think the idea of 25 gifts is a nifty idea, and i’m sure if Nick is reading this he got the earring hint loud and clear 🙂 Have a blast at the retreat… I’m excited the cruise is just around the corner now; i’m excited to meet the Olde Green Cupboard ladies and I’ve even booked a massage for the morning of my birthday, first ever massage 🙂

  2. I LOVE the 25 gifts idea. Nothing wrong with throwing in a pair of small thick hoop diamond earrings! Maybe some chocolate treats from Vande Walle’s too? Enjoy the retreat, and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the entire Bongean family!

  3. I like the Spirit of Christmas title. We get so busy this time of year and we have to remember the joy in all we do. I am making candy for the next 2 weeks, its a lot of work but the joy is going out and delivering it and the phone calls from niece’s and nephew’s telling me they got their package in the mail and it’s all gone they each have their favorite. Great block. Those earrings are going to look great on you.
