Somerset Star Ornament

Once again in my blog reading / hopping adventures this morning, I found a link to this ornament.  I'm sure we've all seen some variation of it.  After looking at it a couple times this morning, I realized it could be completed using my Accuquilt Go cutting system.  2 1/2" blocks, 4 1/2" squares.  The only thing is the circle.  It might not be a die size, but I'm not as familiar with my circle die.
You can go here for the tutorial / instructions.  I think this might be a good way to use up some scraps from the scrap bin and decorate your Christmas tree at the same time.

Have a great day.

Happy Holidays ... Merry Chaos

I am alive and kicking. This holiday season has taken on a life of it's own. My little embroidery business has picked up and I've been completing all sorts of jobs for various wonderful people.  I wish I could remember where I set my camera down to share pictures.  Once jobs are completed that will be my first official task - find camera.

I must share this because it truly is a new use for brussel sprouts. At one point, I thought I liked brussel sprouts. Then I tried them again and changed my mind.
While out blog surfing this morning, I discovered this beauty.  If you are so inclined to decorate your Christmas table with a tree, this one might be just for you.  You can instructions here.

I can hardly wait for next week.  I work 3 days and then will be off work through the New Year.  My goal, if not blown or diverted, is to get some projects finished. 

Have a great day!

Nit Pickin'

Literally. No sewing yet this week for picking through the small child's hair. Rite of passage for the kid, rite of passage for me as a parent. Yuck Yuck Yuck.

Here are my shows from the long weekend.
