Christmas is Coming!

My Grandma Toni is awsome!

She is having an Open House to raise money for the Scholarship Fund for the Perris Valley Womens Club.

I took some video and wanted everyone to be able to see the amazing way she decorates for the Christmas holidays.

The Christmas House Tour is on Tuesday, December 1 and Wednesday December 2. Can you beleive she is decorated to the rafters? The flyer says: Come and enjoy viewing many themed Christmas Trees, Collectibles, Antiques, Dolls and Quilts on display. I know you if you can't visit her house the next best thing is a virtual tour. So that is just what I did. I wanted to share all the fun stuff anyway.

I had to do short videos to be able to put them on the blog.

I hope you enjoy the tour.

Let's start outside.

Guest room, bathroom, laundry room.

Living room.

I will try to get some more videos up in the next few days.

Thanks for checking out the views.

Wondrous Wednesdays

Happy Thanksgiving!
Just want to make sure everyone knows about the sale on Friday.

I took a walk around the store and thought I could share it.
Can you imagine?
Every bolt 35% off!
Only if you are up bright and early!

See you Friday morning.

I will be across the cutting table from Dawna.

Wondrous Wednesdays

"Sweet Friends" by Quilting Treasures.
Remember Holly Hobby? Well you will when you see this line.
It is very cute and brings back childhood memories for me.

Peggy creatively put together this little quilt.
It is a fun size for a sweet little girl to carry around with her,
maybe even but her baby dolls to sleep under it at night.
Good job Peggy!

not so much to share this week. Some weeks are very eventful with many new items, and some weeks are a bit slower. There is always great stuff hiding in the store. If you just need a bit of inspiration before the holidays be sure just to come and get your creative juices flowing.

Until next time,
quilt with holiday love in your heart,

Wondrous Wednesdays

What's in the tub? Flannel of course!
There's so much flannel in and around the tub, it's hard to find the tub.
It's there, just keep looking!
This gets me inspired... I think I need some new flannel jammies!

Beverly has finished the sample for the Cherie fabrics I shared with you last week.
Isn't is adorable?

Now, let's talk about something serious... Christmas is coming!!
Some of those projects you are planning are way to big for this year.
Maybe you should scale it down a bit.
Have you see the Insul-Bright?
Why don't you make up some cute little pot holders, oven mitts, tea cozy or even a casserole cozy? This stuff is great, and it even comes with a free oven mitt pattern. Why don't you whip up some quick gifts, be done early and enjoy some free time this holiday? Don't forget to thank me! Ha Ha.

Blog at you soon,
