In my own defense, I have said, for the past three years, that when Michaels reduces their Christmas ribbons to 70% off, I’ll stock up. And so, I did! I chose colors that didn’t look too “Christmasy” that I could use in crazy quilting. The dollar ribbon bin was also full of satin rattail in many colors!
Hancock Fabrics had a great sale on trim and other goodies, too. Now my “Ribbons, Laces and Trims” bin is nice and full!
Michaels was also the source of this ribbon trim I chose for Mama’s pillow. I’m so proud of myself. I didn’t have the needlework with me, but I had enough sense to take the trim over to the embroidery floss to see if it was a match. It wasn’t on sale, but I had a coupon. SCORE!!!!
Alex and Ricky are offering 3 episodes of The Quilt Show for free from now till the first of the year!
It is a bit bizarre to be hanging snowflakes in the window when it’s 70 degrees Fahrenheit outside and you can hear the hubby on the riding mower! This must be how people in Florida feel!
and what a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon! I am enjoying visiting Erin Prais-Hintz’s blog hop! There is so much beautiful work out there! I gave up on leaving comments on each one (they’re just 80 participants!) but I’ll be back!
I realize I didn’t give Brandi Hussey her props Friday for putting together all 40 (40!) of the palettes for the hop. They are gorgeous and represent more hours of work than I care to think about!
Erin is putting up a special Pinterest board that has all the palettes. I’ll link to it so you can enjoy Brandi’s work as well as the work of hop participants! I want to find them, too. I might challenge myself again!
I’ve repeatedly posted the palette I chose, but here are a few others I especially like:
I don’t think I’ve mentioned lately that these are Landsat satellite photos from the USGS via NASA! ‘Warms an old science teacher’s heart!
