It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like....

Slowly, but surely, I'm getting into the holiday mood. The very first item that I take out on Thanksgiving Night is our Christmas Toile quilt. It's one of my very favorite quilts. On Black Friday, while others shopped, I used some of the extra fabric from this quilt to make pillowcases for our bed. The quilt and pillows make me smile each morning. I'm so happy that I finally finished this quilt. Sadly, this is the only Christmas quilt that is finished. I can think of at least two other projects that are aging in plastic containers. There might be more than the ones I remember :) One of my goals for 2010 will be to complete those other Christmas quilts.

Melisa at Sweet Home collected pillowcases for the ConKer Cancer organization. It was fun sewing these holiday pillowcases. Hopefully, it will bring smiles to a child this holiday season.
