Le Petite--Butter Churn

Christmas decorating has begun at my house. In fact, I took the week off work to take care of the decorating and a few other things, like getting ready for a tamale-making get together I'm hosting on Saturday.

It's 1 a.m. and I've decorated (and cleaned) a fair amount today. A lot of the time has been spent sorting through boxes of decorations and thinking about what I want to use this year. I've about finished the living room and done a bit more here and there. Tomorrow I'll finish the kitchen--that's always a room that takes a long time--and get whatever remains to be decorated done on Wednesday. Since I'm working on a new Christmas quilt for my bed, I don't think I'll have our bedroom completely done this week, but once the rest of the decorating is done, I can get back to the quilt.

During the past weekend, I finally found time to make the Butter Churn quilt top--it's not quilted yet but I think it will go fast. I used the Fruitcake line by Basic Grey for this quilt--it's the November project for the Le Petite club.


One of the projects on today's agenda was to sort out the Sweat Shop, and you can sort of see that I've pinned several holiday projects up on the design wall, and I've also decorated the tree in there--since I spend so much time in this room, I can't ignore it when it comes to decorating.

If I don't post tomorrow night, it's just because I'm too tired and sore to do anything but crawl into bed. Which is kind of how I feel tonight, so I guess it's bath and bed for me. Thanks for stopping by.

Churn Dash has always been one of my favorite quilt patterns. Love the new Christmas Quilt and the fabric.
I agree with Kelly Ann about staying up until 1AM. You are amazing!
