Lucy Tuesday week 74

good afternoon!  we hope you are having a wonderful December.  we popped into town to get our Christmas tree on Sunday night…then we pulled out the lights and the beads and the ornaments and set to work.

this year we opted for 3 trees…1 real, 1 small artificial, and the feather tree from the shoppe i brought home.  the real tree is packed full of soft and sweet ornaments, vintage beads, candle lights…very pastel and pretty.  the other 2 trees are Christmas Past trees…the small artificial tree has some of our childhood ornaments…my Styrofoam star, my puzzle wreath, tina’s repunzel-angel, and felt bells with our kindergarten/first grade pics.  the feather tree we opted for bubble lights in memory of Grandma Zimmer and bulbs from when Mom and Dad were first married and some soft pink bulbs i found at Hollyhock Cottage several Christmases ago.  Needless to say, the house is very Christmas-y…just need to get shopping so we can get some presents wrapped and under the tree.

speaking of shopping…i thought i would pop in and update you on Lucy blocks.  i’m still trying to get my Christmas pillow all done and working on my Mrs. Billings triangles.

i did a check of the Lucy Block kits and some are either sold out or there are just a couple left.  keep in mind…that these are a limited run type thing, and right now i am not planning on making any more blocks.  i may decide to substitute fabrics in the kit…if i decide to do that i’ll make sure to let you know in the listing.

these are some that right now are limited to 1 or 2.

Right now these are the kits that i can only find 1 or 2 of and do not have enough to make any more.

i’ve linked them above in case you’d like to add them to your Patchwork of the Crosses.

Happy stitching…
