I am soooooo in the mood to for CHRISTMAS! I don't know why? My kids have actually taken to calling my "Scrooge" the last few years because I just haven't able to get my heart into Christmas. (Let's face it Christmas is A LOT of work for a mom!) Maybe it's the fact that we finally are not in the middle of moving, maybe it's because the kids are a bit bigger. I don't know the reasons, but this year I am already excited about Christmas!
So I have started working on making some gifts......
Here is one of my creations that I actually am giving away as a birthday present...So I can show it to you....
Cute? I LOVE IT! As a matter of fact I want to make one for myself and I rarely ever end up keeping anything I make. The great thing about this project is I can use up a lot of scraps of both fabric and trims. Maybe I like it so much because it is made from all fabrics I already love. I am hoping to make several more for Christmas gifts. (I have lot's of toile scraps that are looking for a home!) I know I would be happy to find one of these under my tree!'
Here are some basic instructions for how to crazy quilt.
