Our Christmas tree and a blog prize





Finally the house is decorated. I actually did not go overboard this year so as to not stress myself with the clean up process. I actually purged some things which was nice.
Yesterday I received a blog prize from Amanda
It is a Canadian quilting magazine and I look forward to reading it soon. I asked Amanda if she would send me some small scraps for my hexie charm quilt and she sent me this cute bundle. Some of the fabrics in it are from her grandmother. So now my charm quilt will have fabric from Canada. Yay!
Thank you Amanda.

Your tree is beautiful! I have some scraps from fabrics that were purchased in NM that remind me of NM. I will send them.

BEAUTIFUL TREE!

I didn't go overboard either. It can take a day to put stuff up and 3 to put away. Not this year!

I'm glad you liked them :)

I'm sure my Nannie will be proud to have her fabric in such a cool quilt! I loved the picture you sent me. I can't believe they're the same sized as a coin.

P.S. your tree is beautiful :)
