QUILT TOP


It is time to get some more tops done.
I have three girls to finish quilts for but thankfully they will not be sent as Christmas gifts.


I hope to have all three done and shipped by January.
Seems reasonable to me.
Today I am going to start decorating for Christmas.
This means I need to clean, put away and organize !


Sunday Mr.P and I went tree shopping. Anything Christmassy before December 10th is very early for this house.
But the thinking was that maybe, just maybe if we bought our tree early {meaning not a few days before Christmas} we would still have needles on the tree Christmas morning.
We found a seller {local} that harvested these trees last Tuesday. Yahoo, fresh very fresh !
Better yet  they are native Colorado trees !
The claim is that we will have needles on our tree through February !
imagine that...but by January I am tired of all the decorations and clutter,
the tree will be gone, recycled for mulch, so I will never know how it's needles fared .
We bought one !
Pics to follow when it is decorated
{ hopefully this will be before Christmas Eve }

I have used those fabrics in a quilt top as well. They're fun and I know your girls will like them.
