Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

Don't forget CQAL this Saturday . . . . .

Although I will be out of town again on Saturday, I will still be taking some Christmas projects to work on with me.  
I have my Let it Snow quilt all prepped for handwork. Noses to be sewn down and the wool eyes and mouths.  And the embroidery has to be stitched.  Then the quilting and binding.  The missing eyes and mouth are buttons or snaps to be sewn on later.

Sue is hosting this month so hop on over there Saturday morning whenever you get up.   This month we have a special treat.  Charlie from Qubee Quilts will be having a Christmas in July sewing party on Sunday.  So you can sew your Christmas projects all weekend long.  It's too hot outside to do anything else!  Charlie has provided a free quilt pattern.  You can find out all the information on his blog at the link above.  Here is a schematic of what Charlie's quilt looks like.

And here is a picture of the freebie block that Sue and I are giving out this Saturday.  

Hope you can join us!

Blessings, Cathi

Your snowman quilt is looking good. I didn't use any wool on mine.....I used two sizes of black snaps.

I hope you sell lots of wool and kits this coming weekend. The kits have got to be a lot of work.

I was about to forget about the Christmas sew along. Thanks for the reminder.
