Christmas Circa 1970


This little patchwork tree is from about 1970. I hadn't made a real quilt yet but was always fascinated by patchwork. I think it was the forebearer of an obsession to come LOL! This week has been a typical "week before Christmas"--translation: no time for quilting! Most--maybe all--of the present shopping is done and wrapped. Christmas candies and cookies have been baked and frozen. House is somewhat clean. Christmas cards have been sent. Non-perishable ingredients for the Christmas feast have been purchased, remainder will be bought today. Whew! I am making myself tired. Lovely get-togethers have been had, except for two family ones coming up in a few days. What am I forgetting??? Blogging has had to take a back seat and will probably do so for a few more days. Son #1 is coming in today from Nebraska and Son#2 will be in tomorrow from Indiana---so much of my time will be spoken for. Here's wishing each of you a wonderful Christmas and I thank you for reading my blog!

Oh, I remember those trees! I didn't ever get around to make one but I remember seeing them everywhere. That's when the kids were very tiny and the only sewing I got done was the clothes I made for all of use.

Have a wonderful holiday week, and thank you so much for your quilty friendship - which I value very highly!

Season's Greetings Vera. Several of the ladies in My P & Q group made that decoration just recently. It was a little different in that every 2nd triangle was a triangular space. Each little triangle was stuffwed seperately.
