Crazy Quilt Christmas Tree at Crown Center

On the Friday after Thanksgiving they turn on all the lights at Crown Center in downtown Kansas City. We stumbled on this event several years ago and it has become a tradition in our family. I stock up on fabric for my business and we go to Crown Center and watch them turn the lights on. This year we went to the Hallmark Visitors center. We hadn't been there in several years and we look around at all the displays they have. They had a display with all of the beautiful Christmas trees that the employees had made for the original owner of Hallmark. I walked by them and continued on. My husband says to me (after I had left the room), did you see the CRAZY QUILT CHRISTMAS TREE? Of course, I stopped so fast that probably the child I was pushing in his stroller probably got whiplash! I could not believe I had missed it. I then began taking a multitude of pictures much to the annoyance of one lady standing there! Enjoy the pictures I took, it was a very awesome tree and I would love to make one of my own! What an idea!

Update On My Victorian Fancyworks Sampler

Here is an update on my Fancyworks Sampler. Boy, this sampler has alot of stitches on it! It will be worth it when it is done. I ran out of the right colored thread to finish my bullion roses...AHHH! And nobody I know has anymore of that color...I guess I'll try to order some more and hope they have it. I changed the shape of the monogram in the middle and I am happier with it. I'll try to keep updating you with my progress! See you later!

Merry Christmas to All!

I am determined this year to get all of my Christmas cards out early this year! Here is my Christmas card to all of you that read my blog. This is a picture that we had taken at my 3 year old's preschool. Now you can see why sometimes I don't always blog as much as I would like to! My husband's name is Craig and he works at Cessna designing interiors of airplanes. Thomas, my oldest is 19 and attends WSU. Jacob is 11 and extremely gifted with a beautiful singing voice. Eli is 3, soon to be 4 and well...he is Eli. Noah, is 2 and he is our redhead. Between my 4 boys, my crazy quilt website and teaching crazy quilting, I keep really busy! Again, MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!
