Paris Mode

I’m in the Paris mode judging from the guesses coming in for my new Block of the Month!  You have me wishing for a pink, French Christmas quilt! Ahh, how many of you would really buy a pink Christmas quilt?  Sale of one pattern to Bunny Hill but the rest of you?   Well you saw the fabric I’m using in my last post and I’m in more of a universal mode, but I’m always dreaming of Paris…  

I loved Paris and  I would return in a minutes’ notice just for a chance to browse the flea markets for treasures!  Anyone ready for a Paris treasure hunt?  I actually looked up costs online today for next year.  I’m hooked don’t you think?

 I paid 10 Euros for this card of vintage Mother of Pearl buttons. It was a bargain.   I would have paid more, I loved them so much.  I’m not good at bargaining.  I hate it, but I made myself ask if they would take less in my most French sounding English.  At the same vendor I paid 25 Euros for one button. The bargaining didn’t work at all.  I really wanted that button from 1880 and so I paid the money.   Can’t show it to you now because I’ll be using it for something in the spring.  You’ll appreciate it more when you see it. 

As for that  5″ square of pink in my block of the month?   Try looking at some of my other block of the months to see how I’ve used “pink”!  Do you think I’ve used the entire square or do you think maybe I cut it up?

Guess what?  We have a few correct guesses in the contest already!  If you guess right you’ll get an email confirming that you’ve been entered in the contest.  

Quilt shops can email me directly for the “La Petite Ecole” fabric sku’s I’ve used.

One more question for today.  How many of you have Facebook pages and why?  I’ve been visiting Facebook and I’m not sure I “get it”.   Do you actually  use Facebook?   Do you use it every day? 

Back soon!

Anne

  • Louise - I absolutely love those lovely oval buttons. I am a pushover as well for vintage buttons especially mother of pearl. Hmmm I am wondering on your theme …it wouldn’t be April in Paris would it? I really like that French General line. I am currently working on two using Kari Meng’s fabrics. I should finish them up just about the same time.ReplyCancel

  • pam seaberg - Those buttons are to die for. A friend of mine was in Paris a few years ago and bought some wonderful vintage buttons. I bought a couple of cards from her. I just started facebook myself. It has been a good way of keeping in touch with people you don’t email, or see a lot. Try it, I like it.ReplyCancel

  • Marsha - Those are yummy pink buttons, vintage is great. But then again, I could be classified “vintage”! With all of the news stories about Facebook being compromised for different reasons, I will not be part of it.ReplyCancel

  • Ronda - Christmas in tiny town?ReplyCancel

  • Louise - Okay, I am really thinking hard here and was wondering if it could be a forest or woodland scene with applique featuring a bit of snow and of course bunnies running all around. All of this encirled with pieced blocks..Perhaps an evergreen tree block or a star block. Maybe I am pushing it here..ReplyCancel

  • Sharon Stroud - I’m steering clear of Facebook. I tried it briefly but it was “weird”. Plus no security is really good enough, and you hear about compromises all the time. Some love it, some use it as a tool, but I figure a blog and a website are all I want out there. Hope that helps!

    Another guess for the contest: Rabbits do the 12 days of Christmas. Or Rabbits celebrate an old-fashioned Christmas. Okay, I guess that’s two guesses ;-)ReplyCancel

  • Marsha - I did buy a “pink” Christmas quilt pattern. The Vintage Spool’s “Noel” pattern is heavily pink, and absolutely cute! You and Verna seem to be my favorite quilt designers, so vintage/shabby chic styles.

    Are you going to have yo-yos in it? I just adore “Yo-yo-ville”, and all 297 yo-yos!ReplyCancel

  • Marsha - OOPS! That would be 197 yo-yos…but it seemed like 297!ReplyCancel

  • annette - Gorgeous buttons!! Could it be an angel theme? pink little faces?ReplyCancel

  • Louise - I need to give this one more try before bedtime..So how about birds of some type…?? I have been reading the comments and there are some really good guesses there. You must be having a lot of fun reading these.ReplyCancel

  • Sue Ericksen - I use Facebook to stay in touch with my family and friends that over the country. Until I signed up I was always wondering what was going on with everyone. Now I can check in once in a while to see what everyone is up to, especially my grandkids who live in another state.

    The fabrics would make a great French Country Joyeux Noel quilt.ReplyCancel

  • Marj - My next guesses for the BOM are Christmas pets, winter birds or fun gingerbread cookiesReplyCancel

  • Mary on Lake Pulaski - Love the buttons and will be watching for that special one you purchased.
    Yes, I am on Facebook and use it every day. It’s a great way to share photos among my huge family, especially those spread across the country. All of kids and my nieces and nephews use Facebook and with it I can stay connected. I also play Scrabble with a few people on Facebook since my husband doesn’t play.ReplyCancel

  • Sivje Parish - Hm…I am wondering if the quilt blocks could be based on Christmas presents, or maybe letters to Santa.
    My last thought would be birds, bunnies and woodland creatures.

    And as to Facebook, I have a page, but I mostly use it for social contacts. I check in a few times every day.ReplyCancel

  • Sivje Parish - Or what about a theme of “My favorite things”, you know, the song from Sound of Music.ReplyCancel

  • Tina Dillon - Hi Anne,
    I wonder, how about lld fashioned,Victorian or Edwardian, Children’s Christmas toys quilt ?ReplyCancel

  • Tina Dillon - Sorry Anne, I meant old not lld.ReplyCancel

  • Tina Dillon - Anne,
    Different school houses vintage and new maybe for the mystery quilt.ReplyCancel

  • Diane - I’m on Facebook every day as is my grown daughter and her friends who live far away and in many directions. I get to see all the photos she posts and what she’s up to as she tells all to her buddies. I’ve also found very easily many of my high school classmates for the 40th reunion I’m planning! Connecting with people from my past is to me as Paris is to you, Anne!ReplyCancel

  • Joanne Moore - Well I am totally flumoxed by the clues. Le Petite Ecole just makes me think of all the years of school Christmas shows we had to endure..I mean enjoy..I even had the pleasure of organizing the third grade’s contribution for 2 of my kids…nice big Catholic school classes of 40+…my sons class oddly mostly boys… I had them sing Santa Claus is coming to town so they could whoop it up. The alphabet on the fabric reminds me of “Heis making a list.” So maybe that is the theme..or just the School Christmas play.
    LOVE the buttons! Tres Jolie!ReplyCancel

  • Nancy Coffeen - I’m really stumped. I thought for sure it was going to be “A French Christmas”. Or what about a “Christmas in the Countryside”?
    I really like Facebook and use it every day. I think your fan base would grow and grow and there is a real need for more sites for quilters. Hope you go for it!
    Thanks for all of the animal pictures……so many wonderful pets!ReplyCancel

  • Anne-Lise - I think there will be bunnies – and the pink has been cut to make noses … children’s toys …
    I have used Facebook, but not so much now – I found it a time thief and not so much fun as reading blogs.ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie - Those buttons had your name on them–waiting for a trip to the US. Lovely. Clueless on your new BOM but it’ll be fantastic for sure.

    I do not facebook, tweet, text, have an ipad or iphone, and try to avoid my cell phone (I only have that for emergencies and college kids to phone home.) My blog is the most technological thing I “do” besides e-mail. Lots of Facebook fans out there…ReplyCancel

  • Linda P. - I’ve been racking my brain, but want to say something pertaining to Christmas Primer or ABCs – whatever, I love the fabrics!! Buttons – yay!! Love them too!! And yes, I would buy a pink Christmas kit. Yes, I Facebook, but have quit playing the games I used to play would rather see my favorite designers there, with links to what I am intereseted in… like one stop fun. Hugs to Bitsy – Sunny Boy has learned to train us also!!ReplyCancel

  • Bette - Your hints are too “obtuse” (obscure?)as my husband would say. I have a Facebook page, but never post…..my kids call me a “stalker”..I read what everyone else is up to.ReplyCancel

  • Denise in PA - I would buy/make a pink Christmas quilt o:) Yes, I have a Facebook page. My kids made me. You learn way too much about your kids and their friends from Facebook. But, sometimes it’s the only way to know what’s going on. Like when your (adult) son is in the hospital!!! It was no big deal, but I had to find out on Facebook when I saw the photo of him laying in the ER giving a “thumbs up.” Great, just great. LOL!ReplyCancel

  • Jocelyn - No facebook for me. Nor do I tweet or text. I spend enough time on the computer as it is, I do not want my life engulfed in the facebook craze. I agree with some of the other comments. I think you learn way too much (probably some things you don’t need to know).ReplyCancel

  • pat sloan - you are SUCH a tease… i use FB.. come visit me! http://www.facebook.com/PatSloanQuiltFunReplyCancel

  • Vicky - I have a Facebook account, but the moment I set it up, I had people I’ve never heard of bombarding me to be friends. Yikes, that scared me. So I’m mostly just a reader now.

    Okay, so my lunch hour today will be spent pouring over your BOMs! You’re such a tease! I’m convinced I’m going to figure this out!!!

    Great buttons! Need a handler on your next trip to Paris? :)ReplyCancel

  • Mary T. Salmon - Hi Anne!
    I love those buttons. I am a button-holic! I have jars of them in my sewing room. I am a sucker for vintage buttons, lace and fabric! I especially love little baby vintage buttons…I am hopeless. Anyway, your BOM HAS to have bunnies. Maybe little French soldiers standing guard or sitting at a sidewalk cafe, or strolling with an embrella. Christmas is in the air and it is crisp and blistery…bunnies…has to have bunnies.
    I love Facebook. I have my privacy settings for family and friends. I review restaurants and show pics or show my current projects. It is fun to stay in contact with other quilter friends and family.
    Love,
    MaryReplyCancel

  • Sue - Loved the buttons.

    Anne, not a fan of Facebook. Never go to it.

    I DO LOVE your blog site. I follow it faithfully.ReplyCancel

  • Pauline - A Country Christmas BOM, a Santa BOM or an ABC Christmas BOM. The clue from way back……the other animal you like to draw ….. could it be …….. sheep. You do collect sheep. If I could only think like you………this would be easy. Looking forward to receiving that all important email from you.

    I do not facebook, tweet, or text….I don’t have an Iphone, and my old cell phone is usually turned off. I got an Ipod for Christmas last year and not sure how to work it. I just started blogging and I’m struggling with that. I already spend too much time on the computer. Unless I find a way to get 36 hours in a day I’ll stick to quilting or stitching my embroidery. HugsReplyCancel

  • Mary Ann - I’m still thinking Christmas village! And I do “get” facebook and check in every day or two.ReplyCancel

  • Andrea - This is a tricky one….the first thought that comes to mind is children and toys…perhaps Little Drummer Boy inspired? I LOVE the fabric, and can’t wait to see it!!!
    I use facebook daily. It is a way for me to keep in contact with my university and highschool friends that have scattered accross N. America. I love being able to share pictures of my family and keep up to date with people whom I may never otherwise see or talk to again =)ReplyCancel

  • Diane - I am signed into Facebook, but I’m not too excited about it. My daughters are really into it with all their friends and cousins, and it’s a great way to keep up, but it’s just not my thing. I’m more into reading all the great quilting blogs!

    I’ve already guessed old fashioned, vintage quilt ornaments or toys — I guess that 5 x 5 scrap of pink could be used for faces or tiny bunnies. I can’t imagin a quilt pattern of yours without animal friends of some sort!ReplyCancel

  • Anita - I have a facebook account but I hardly ever visit it. My husband’s sisters (they live in another country) use facebook alot. So sometimes I’m forced to visit if I want to keep up with that side of the family. I’m with you, I don’t get it either. I actually find facebook kind of annoying.ReplyCancel

  • Laura Tawney - An old fashioned Christmas with toys, drums, bunnies, puppies, santa and his pink nose and maybe a snowman also!
    Laura TReplyCancel

  • Laura Tawney - Oh, and I really only use Facebook to keep up with kids. Don’t really care for it – and don’t post hardly at all on my home page. It’s funny but I find some of my adult kids only want to text or facebook and then they don’t even email and forget answering the phone. What I find it has to be in small sound bites I guess???
    Laura TReplyCancel

  • Laura Tawney - Well I think this is going to be my final guess: I could see an English theme with a Thatched roof cottages from the Cotswolds, grazing sheep, snowman, birds, christmas book, sled, perhaps a deer, an owl, a christmas mail box and a bird carrying a letter, and bunnies! I’m sure there is more but whatever it is I’m sure it will be lovely!
    Laura TReplyCancel

  • Jean - I’d buy a pattern for a pink Christmas quilt! A few years back I did a mystery class for some friends. It turned out to be a table runner and I told everyone to make it out of Christmas fabric so they would have something for the holidays. One of my friends actually got mad at me because I used a pink/brown/silver colorway. Sheesh!

    My guess for the new quilt was The Twelve Days of Christmas, which I think is still a good guess. But you have used pink for hearts, flowers, banners with sayings, stars, and packages. So I think I’ll add a guess that maybe you are going to do a Patriotic Quilt!ReplyCancel

  • Leona - I am crazy for buttons and love the ones you brought back from Paris. I once spent $35 on a single, fabulous button that I used as the top closure on my winter coat. Than I lost some weight, gave the coat away and forgot to take the button off first. I was, of course, devastated when I realized what I had done. Oh well, I hope it gave someone else the joy it gave me. As to facebook- I do have an account and love to keep up with people that I wouldn’t normally phone or e-mail. Our family also uses it to share pictures and send fun little messages. I enjoy it and don’t take it too seriously. Just keep your settings on private if you don’t want tons of unsolicited comments.ReplyCancel

  • Barb Colvin - I’m guessing your love for Paris will be translated into a French Christmas theme for your BOM. As for facebook, I use it to connect with family and friends. I like the chat feature. I block all of the game applications and steer clear of the ‘I like or heart’ posts because of spam. One of the most important things to remember is: don’t put it on facebook unless you want the whole world to know.ReplyCancel

  • Carrie P. - Sweet buttons. I is such a treasure to find buttons on the cards. I don’t use facebook. Doing a blog and email is enough for me.ReplyCancel

  • Ina - I didn’t get an email from Anne or Bitsy so I’m out of luck! ;0

    Yes, I have a Facebook page….only because I was nagged into submission. Do I use it? No. ;0ReplyCancel

  • Edie - Anne,

    Yes I use Facebook — the only way to communicate with my sons!

    I still think the quilt will be a BOM of a Christmas village with browns and pinks!

    Thanks for all the wonderful quilt patterns.ReplyCancel

  • Liz - Awesome buttons! I have some vintage buttons on cards found at a church garage sale! I wonder if the quilt will be Christmas through the eyes of a child? Alphabet letters , small animals, toys….hmmm.ReplyCancel

  • Sarah B. - Reading everyone else’s blogs is more than enough time on the net for me! So, I was looking over all your other patterns and you seem to use the pink for a focus animal OR as an accent. Hum, I am still stumped but I like the Christmas alphabet idea since I am working on one now. Also I like the Advent calendar with animals! But my favorite guess is still a Christmas Tiny Town… :o)ReplyCancel

  • Gari - I used Facebook but mostly to keep up with family. It is too easy to get involved with lots of ads and other junk so you have to be careful.ReplyCancel

  • Doris Jablonski - I think it might be vintage toys. Maybe under
    the Christmas tree.
    DorisReplyCancel

  • Louise - I guess I could not let the day pass without another stab at this. I have not seen anyone mention chipmunks or squirrels but then again perhaps someone did and I missed it. This sure does have us all in a quandry. I like that word.ReplyCancel

  • dianne - for the mystery quilt – letters to Santa? or maybe Santa’s naughty and nice lists? christmas lists in general?

    i don’t use facebook – i had a page for a couple of weeks, but after the fifth email from people (men) i went to high school with forty years ago asking me if i was the OTHER Dianne, i got rid of it (the other Dianne was VERY popular with the b-o-y-s)ReplyCancel

  • Cynthia - Hmmmm…

    When I see the fabrics I keep thinking of an an old flag (red, blue, cream) waving outside a house or little one room country school house in a snowy outdoorsy Christmas theme.

    The other thought I had was red and blue birds on a snowy/creamy background.

    Or teddy bears with little pink noses with little vests or bows.

    I’m hungry right now so I’m also thinking Christmas cookies though I don’t know how the blue would look for cookies so how about vintage red and blue Christmas ornaments on a creamy background.

    This is fun!

    As far as Facebook, no I don’t have an account and don’t follow it. I’m a working mother raising two teenage children. Don’t have the time (games will pull you in…) and when I created a test account all of their friends wanted to “friend” me. I kept seeing stuff from their generation I didn’t need to see. :-)

    CynthiaReplyCancel

  • mimi'sdarlins - Oh Anne, these buttons are the perfect vintage pink! I can’t stand it!! Any time I find anything in this color, I just have to buy it! I think 10 Euros was a bargain, and I’m sure the 1880 button was worth the price, too. If you wanted it and you love it, it was worth it :-)
    Ok, back to this guessing…maybe a Christmas story like
    A Christmas Carol, or The Night Before Christmas (visions of sugarplums), or The Nutcracker, or 12 Days of Christmas?
    Or cute critters w/ pink noses? pink hearts? pink ribbons?
    Or an old fashioned Christmas scene or village?
    I’m running out of guesses!!ReplyCancel

  • Martine - Hi Anne,
    I am not on Facebook but don’t miss it. Surfing on blogs and exchanging e-mails is enough.
    My suggestion for the next BOM : maybe Santa’s workshop in the faraway Lapland. That would include Santa’s elves, sacks full of toys, the children’s addresses, Santa’s wife packing Santa’s luggage, Rudolph and its fellow-reinder…
    Well, easier to say an write than to make, but considering how talented you are, I am sure you would meet no obstacle.
    Have a good day Anne,
    Martine – FRANCEReplyCancel

  • KatieQ - I’m starting to think of bunnies at Christmas in the snow. I bet that pink would be just right for a bunny nose or the inside of an ear.
    I don’t get Facebook either. I joined with a made up name so that I could look at the pictures my cousin posts of her children. I know several of our family members (not my children) are addicted to it. I’m usually out of step with the rest of the world. This is just one more thing that does not translate to my mind.ReplyCancel

  • Trina Christenson - The buttons are wonderful. Yes, I do Facebook – helps to keep up with my kids and many of my friends. I just make sure my personal stuff is well guarded!

    Christmas Bells and sleighs! Could that be the BOM this time? Or Maybe Christmas Stars and Woodland Critters? Or maybe Christmas Stars and Nativity! Will be looking for that next clue. :)ReplyCancel

  • SewLindaAnn - Okay, 3rd try here. Is it a old fashioned animal or animal farm Christmas theme, or could it be simply a old fashioned bunny Christmas theme? or maybe an old fashioned Christmas with all YOUR Bunny Hill critters?

    I went off Facebook, all those additional internet options can keep you from living your real life if you don’t watch out. There’s almost too much that’s interesting and it can draw you in for hours.

    Can’t wait to see the button project.ReplyCancel

  • Jane Anderson - I have facebook, but do not use it as I feel it does not offer ebough privacy or security. I hear that the young people use it, and some do not usr it kindly. They say businesses should have a page?ReplyCancel

  • Joanne Moore - Forgot to share with you my Facebook experiences. I have been on Facebook for a few months now. I joined thru a quilt shop to receive quilt hints etc. I had no idea it can access one’s email list. Kind of creeped me out that Facebook started showing me photos of my friends and family already on Facebook. My 24 year old daughter friended me before she left on a month backpack adventure to Germany. This would be a great way to keep in touch… Well her second week involved having her wallet and passport stolen from her Hostel in Poland. We learned that Western Union really works! My husband and I had the pleasure of the 6am Sunday morning call of a crying daughter who at least was able to say “You told me so” as she did not lock up here belongings in spite of our advise. While spending our Sunday cancelling her cards and emailing back and forth with her, I told her to please not let this mishap get to her Grandparents ears until she returned home as they were already worried enough about her. On Monday, she posts on her Facebook “got robbed in Poland” Well who responds but my cousins on both my mom and dad’s side and my daughter’s cousins on my husband’s side. It is only a matter of minutes before this story would work its way thru cyberspace and telephone lines and fall in the grandparents laps. I was so angry I thought I would pop. I then spent the entire afternoon doing damage control, calling and emailing cousins and an aunt or two. We were able to contain the mishap until her return. I saved the folks weeks of worry and aged myself a couple of years. Moral of the story if you want to get any info out to lots of people fast? Go Facebook!! Extremely effective! I have not friended my other 2 kids as I DO NOT want to hear all about their adventures. The language used by young adults to each other is not meant for my eyes/ears. Yikes. Several nieces have friended me and last weekend I got to have 5 minutes of fear upon reading that my niece was at the truck race out in Lucerne, CA where 8 people were killed. SHe called me as soon as I facebooked her and she was only 25 yards from the accident but fortunately watching safely from up on a hill. It is an incredible communication tool and I have connected with various friends and family. However is all this information necessary or healthy for my nervous system?? To be determined!! Get Facebook, get tough!
    May I guess again on the quilt? Is it the nativity scene with sheep which might be another of your favorite animals and a little pink baby Jesus? A “creche” which would be in keeping with the French theme?
    Have a nice rest of the weekend! Would have loved to sent you pictures of my pets..I am the gal with the cat with the messed up head, the dog with the bad tummy and the now wisdomtoothless son. However I have not yet learned how to do that on the computer. My kids are my tech support so I will try to get a few lessons before they blast off to college again. I LOVED all the photos. You can check out a couple of photos on my facebook album and see my grey cat Elliot inspecting my layout of my Buttons and Bows quilt. I love that pattern of yours and have made several! Of course it took my daughter to get those photos on for me…Someday I will be a techno wiz..yeah right!ReplyCancel

  • Marcia W. - “A Wee Tot’s Christmas” – full of toys with “ABC blocks” that have letters stacked spelling Christmas and images of cute animals (like b for bunny, a for angel, l for lamb). That’s this guess.ReplyCancel

  • Sandra - I don’t get face book either and I did join when some friends encouraged me to but I found it rather scary with people wanting to be my friend and I didn’t know who they are. I enjoy the blogs I go to and I find that I spend enough time on them without facebook to. I don’t know how people find time to quilt when they are on facebook or twitter and I am rather private. Each to their own.
    GodblessReplyCancel

  • Cynthia - Hi Anne,

    Okay, I’ll try another guess.

    How about the Night Before Christmas American style. Cookies in front of the fireplace on a table with Santa about to come down the chimney.

    If not that, then how about 12 items that mean Christmas such as cookies, a drum, a toy, an ornament, etc. on the quilt.

    CynthiaReplyCancel

  • Liz - I have a face book page but do not use it. I don’t really get it and it’s confusing…email is easier. Maybe I need more friends:) I have to guess again on your BOM quilt…..could it be…………… vintage christmas ornaments? But, they would have more pink and and some other colors too? The fabric is beautiful and I can’t wait to see what it is!! Maybe it’s children and a one room schoolhouse theme? I think I need more clues. hugs.ReplyCancel

  • Julia - Anne, those oval buttons are just so adorable! I’m not good at bargaining either…and always end up with the feeling that I’ve been short-changed…well, I guess that’s inevitalbe.
    Oh my…I always knew I was bad in guessing…but this riddle…I feel so dumb ;o).
    Have a wonderful day,
    JuliaReplyCancel

  • Michelle - You’re killing me here. Haha…… 12 Days of Christmas!! Or if really universal as to the fabric choices…. An American in Paris. So much fun!ReplyCancel

  • Dorian - A victorian Santa’s workshop!ReplyCancel

  • Doris Jablonski - I think it could be “Christmas in the Country”.
    That’s my guess.
    DorisReplyCancel

  • Sharon S - I love Facebook. I can message old friends I haven’t seen since high school & see cute pictures of my great niece & nephew or see what my DD’s friend is up to in the Phillipines. Link my blog posts so my FB friends can see what I’m up to there. (Check out Monica of Happy Zombie fame on FB.) I like that it’s usually just a quick sentence or 2. Some of my more “high tec” FB friends use their Blackberry phones to take pictures & comment on their FB pages. Just make sure you have the “privacy settings” all set so that your information is only shared with your FB friends. The best FB story, a 70+ year old relative of mine accidentally called it FaceSpace! Combining Facebook & My Space! LOLReplyCancel

  • Yvonne - Ohhhhh, this is so difficult! I’m still thinking 12 days of (something) but maybe that’s not right…

    How about ‘Christmas in Europe’ with either a traditional English thatched cottage or an elegant Parisian apartment block in the snow? With a selection of European wildlife – using the pink for noses and the insides of ears? Or maybe the pink is for a house/cottage… And maybe there’s no European connection at all!

    Facebook – love it as a means of keeping in touch with friends throughout the world but get slightly ‘freaked’ when strangers ask to be my friend. Quite happy with the 30 or so friends I have…ReplyCancel

  • Marcia - Ok, I’m guessing the critter that you like to “draw almost as much as bunnies” will be a squirrel. You already have a “vintage” christmas. I think it would be fun to have a BOM of places Squirrels hide their acorns. You do use pink for back grounds and little spots throughout. Christmas in Manhattan would be a hoot. That would be hard and they certainly don’t have houses there. Maybe a house made of christmas blocks.ReplyCancel

  • Carol in E TN - Christmas in Paris! Love those pink buttons too!!!ReplyCancel

  • Kim - No facebook for me…seen to many problems.

    I can’t wait to see the 35.00 button!
    As always……your blog is a great place to visit :0)

    Happy SewingReplyCancel

  • donna barwish - could it be all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse??

    I do use facebook, but am a lurker 90%of the time. great to see what friends are up to though.ReplyCancel
