What fun to be participating in the Very Merry Holiday Hop from Henry Glass Fabrics. The first day today is Little Quilts and Linda Lum DeBono. Be sure to check out the Henry Glass Fabric Blog for the schedule of all the great designers and their fun projects.
It’s also so special to be starting the hop on Veteran’s Day. It’s the perfect day to honor all those who serve our great country.
What better way to honor them, than with a Flag.
At Little Quilts, we love all things flag related. Our project is Little Quilt Flags, from our book, “Patriotic Little Quilts” published by Martingale & Company. The book is sold out but we have copies at the store. You can see them on our website.
These little flags are perfect for quick and easy gifts as wall hangings, placemats, or pillows.
This is the time of year that we remember our favorites. I love angels and love to collect them and angel ornaments. I love to decorate with small trees with different themes around the house rather than one big tree.A tradition of mine is buying a special ornament each year for my son and daughter as they were growing up. My son is now 42, and my daughter 35. When they married I gave them their ’stash’ of ornaments. Now my son and daughter are buying an ornament each year for their children. Here is my daughter's tree, I remember buying so many of these ornaments for her while she was growing up! And now the tree is getting full of the ornaments she has purchased for my 2 grandsons. You can even see their elf, Buddy, perched on one of the branches; he visits every year to check in on the boys!
Some of my favorite foods BLT’s (bacon, lettuce & tomato sandwiches) apple pie,
and M & M’s. All foods are really my favorites!
A favorite recipe for all the time but especially for the holidays is a cream cheese and olive spread. It’s red and green, so it’s perfect for this time of year.
Simple.. simple… simple…. A brick of cream cheese softened, then chop up a small jar of salad olives (the ones with green olives and pimentos). Stir that into the softened cream cheese. Put in a pretty glass vase, and spread on crackers or celery.
Enjoy the blog hop this year….comment on the blog with a favorite “something” and we’ll have a random drawing for three participants to receive free patterns. . We’ll send three of you a Little Quilts Pattern and one of our Sunbonnet Sue Stitchery patterns for your birthday month. Include your birthday month in your comment please.
