Sweetwater’s 12 Days of Christmas…Day 10

sweetwater's 12 days of christmas

10 Lords-A-Leaping…i don’t really know what that means.  where would you even find them?  so i would trade them for a Sweetwater Favorite…Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler book.  Every Thursday we (and by we, i mean mom) does 3 blocks and we (and by we, i mean me) post them on the blog.  There is a total of 140–6 inch finished blocks.  So it is tons and tons of fun!  if you’d like to “join” just pick up a book and start sewing.  Below is the lovely book and the fabrics we used.  **we could get you started with a Cottage Cake (42-10 inch squares) and a Northcote Range Charm pack (42-5 inch squares).**

and now some history of day 9 of the 12 days of christmas…first off….10 Lords-A-Leaping…10 dancers are $10,000.

“Catholics in England during the period 1558 to 1829, when Parliament finally emancipated Catholics in England, were prohibited from ANY practice of their faith by law – private OR public. It was a crime to BE a Catholic.”  www.byrum.org

Thus The 12 Days of Christmas was written as a memory aid to learning the Christian Faith.  The 10 Lords-A-Leaping refers to the ten Commandments.

So that’s all for day 10.
