Merry Christmas

Only a few days left until Christmas.  I got my tree decorated this last week and lights up outside.  It really comes fast and then over so quickly. When I was kid, Christmas was really a joy.  I lived in Chicago and it was always snowing when we went to church on Christmas Eve.  We played in the snow, made angels, ice skated and dug tunnels along the parkways. Shopping for special gifts and baking was a very wonderful time of my life. I now live in Southern California, so no snow but has really be cold lately. I miss too that the real meaning of Christmas is disappearing in our society.  May we remember it is the birthday of Christ and that is what we celebrate.  Most of my family is gone or moved away, so it's just husband, daughter and grandson.

Today is my birthday- a  Christmas baby I am,  and not feeling old at all.  I keep very active, creating and quilting.  Walk every morning and being successful in a good weight loss this year.  Got the best card from my sister-in-law that said "Forever 39" and that's really what I feel like.

A Very Merry Christmas  to everyone and much peace for the New Year 2012.

New Fabric

Doing something I have wanted to do for a long time with my art quilting. This is a piece of my new fabric I am having printed at Spoonflower.  A yard contains 3 different blocks repeated 3 times.  They are some designs I made in my fun program "Kaleidoscope Kreator" using some of my flower photos.  I am anxious to get my order and design a fun art quilt for some new one day workshops I am planning.  Anyone can purchase this fabric, or fabric from other designers, on the Spoonflower site. I have purchased fabric from them from other designers and have been very impressed with the quality of the printing and service.

My fabric is called "Kaleidoscope Blocks".  I'm having fun with this and have several more things on the drawing board for classes and having other fabric printed.
