holiday season

with the holiday season upon us, we are bustling.  new things are always coming to the front-moving to the back-taking our focus from the current.  there are just so many new things out there and even more on the way.  most recently we’ve put together a tree skirt and matching table topper using a variety of prints so it’s scrappy.  then i quilted the tree skirt with an antique tan and the topper with burgundy.  it speaks of a long ago christmas when time stood still and we stopped for a moment and enjoyed it.

happy holidays-may you stay warm, quilt often, and enjoy the little things
