Block #9....

I think this is the last block. I'm stitching up the label while I have everything out and am in the mood.
After I finish the label, I'll get the directions out and figure out how to assemble them all.

Sunday rain...

A break in Sunday's downpour... I ran out to take this picture.
As you can see, the chairs and umbrella were blown over... The wind was crazy last night. Sheesh...It started pouring again like 5 mins after I snapped the photo. Wish it would have lasted a little longer than 1 day though. 

Vintage Tree Farm....

It's done...
Isn't it funny.. No matter how many times you look at things...or even stare...you don't see things that are right there in front of you. There is a line missing on bottom right, going over the 1st tree. I looked, and looked and looked... And didn't notice it was missing until I took this picture and there it was! 
So back to the machine it went....
Almost dark now, but it's fixed! The outside light is still better than the inside. There... I think I got them all now! If you see another, let me know! Hahaha..

Christmas isn't over....

I started working on Buttermilk Basins Vintage Tree Quilt this week...
Just need to stitch the truck down.  
Then I started working in Buttermilk Basin FREE mystery BOM. 'Let it snow'. I wasn't gonna do it because I need another project like I need a hole in my head but after seeing everyone's block and how stinking cute they are, I changed my mind.
I need to stitch him down also. Now I have added more to my stitching basket... Oh boy!

Vicks....

Has anyone ever seen this post on Vicks vaporub? I had heard of a couple of these ideas but there are more.
I have no idea if any of the silly ones work, like rubbing it on your feet, or acne!? I also heard if you put it on your feet and wear socks, your legs won't cramp up. Who knows.  Just thought I would pass it on. Maybe we should have some in our medicine cabinet just in case. Haha.

Back to work...

Sad day today....school started back up so that means vacation is over.
Sunday, I took down the very last of my Christmas decorations and hung this baby up.
I have a feeling that this might be the longest week in history coming up..

Farmhouse threads....

Went to the warehouse sale today...wow...fat quarters, buy 1, get 2 free... Yep that's right! 1/2 yd bundles.. Buy 1 @ 3.00, get 1 free. In other words, a yard of fabric for $3.00.. Youza... When you turn around, same fabric on bolt for $12.00' but it was 25% off... Ya, no thanks... I can have it in 2 pieces.
Other notions and patterns were incredible prices too. 
Oh, look at this..

This whole kit... under $ 50.00.... It 72x92... It's Moda... I couldn't begin to tell you how many yards of fabric are stuffed into this box.
Incredible sale, but... They need to mark down there fabric on the bolt like Red Door Designs does.. 3.00 a yard...then I will be in serious trouble... Good thing RDD only has a sale once a year.

Tree trimming party...

That's the name of the pattern. I was in a race for daylight to take the picture and didn't take any of the loose threads off. 

He measures 36x36 and is the cutest thing. If I make it again, I am going lighter on the base of the tree. Can't really see it.
I am so spoiled with Primitive Gatherings patterns already being reversed, that I didn't even think twice when I cut these out. Oh well.. Still is wonderful!
