It’s my favorite time of year – the build-up from Halloween, and my birthday to Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Needless to say I do not suffer from season affective disorder, though I know a few people who do and it’s a terrible thing to have happen.
I love the holidays.
I EVEN love holiday music.
Yes, I’m one of THOSE people.
I think my love of the holidays comes from my mother.
Growing up, we’d decorate, cook, and listen to Christmas music during the holiday season.
I remember Mom would put on Christmas music and we’d bake cookies and pies until the dining room table was FILLED WITH TREATS!
This year I’m doing what I did last year and I’m QUILTING for the holidays.
My work shuts down for two weeks during the holidays and it’s the PERFECT time to start a quilting project.
This time, I’m looking at two quilt patterns:
Spruced Goose Quilt
The trick is that I really should make the Spruced Goose quilt because I have all the supplies to make it.
However, it’s a gift for a friend and the Star Gazing quilt is actually a more appropriate color scheme for her.
So I’m stuck.
Do I make the quilt that’s better for her or the one I’ve got all the supplies for?
Oh, the dilemma.
Turns out, I may just try to make both and decide what to do with them later.
Also, I have THIS quilt top which needs to be finalized and I haven’t created the backing for it yet so maybe I’ll finish THREE QUILTS this holiday season.
What can I say?
I am a quilt making QUEEN!
