The Christmas BOM from my Yahoo sewing group, have one more block to go since I'm only making nine blocks.
As I posted before the blocks are based on line drawings from Primitive Blessings Twigs n Sprigs, all free on her website. Debbie and I take turns choosing the drawings for each month and then we are on our own. Debbie does stitchery, I do wool, some of the other ladies use a combination of both.
I wish I could show you pictures, but there is a copyright issue, a large fire now burning in our beautiful valley since Tuesday, just south of Livingston which would be about 35 miles away from me, they haven't been able to get a handle on it yet able to save homes, a business, school and church which is amazing considering how many fires are burning here in Montana, the park and other western states. You wonder how they can keep this up, but they do, establishing fire lines where they can. This is beautiful land, mountains, forest, homes as well as ranches, raising horses and cattle. One home lost and I know the lady, she is a quilter, a widow who lost her husband a year before Jim died. She was only able to get out with her cat and some pictures of her late husband. I remember her stopping by the clinic to show me a memory quilt she had made of her husband's shirts and stuffed animals from the shirts for her grandkids. I don't know how she can stand that much loss.
