Giveaway Day & A Little Snowman Star

There aren't enough days in the weekend.
 ~Rod Schmidt
 I couldn't agree more! Where did the weekend go? Saturday started with the normal run to the Farmer's Market to pick up our weekly supply of fresh produce. On the way home we bought our little Christmas tree, dumpy but cute. Came home in time to make Little Smokies for a potluck our ALS Support Group was having at 1:00. Went to the potluck and had fun sharing with everyone. Then came the running - to a new quilt shop (that had already closed for the day), Costco, Harbor Freight and then we even braved the crowds at Toys Are Us. What a nightmare that was! The store was a mess, the aisles were crowded and kids running everywhere. Home in time to fix dinner and crash. Sunday was washing, sewing, wrapping, cooking, and finally, dinner. Luckily my sweet DH was a major help in the wrapping and card department. So how was your weekend - a mad house too?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PHOTO OF THE DAY
Four Colly Birds

The verse, four calling birds, is actually a corruption of the English word colly or collie. So, we are referring to "four colly birds" or four collie birds (the words to the song were probably written before the creation of the dictionary, so the spelling of old words tends to be flexible).
What is a colly bird? It is a black bird. In England a coal mine is called a colliery and colly or collie is a derivation of this and means black like coal. For a long time in England, blackbirds have been referred to as both blackbirds (as in the nursery rhyme Sing a Song of Sixpence) and colly birds as in The Twelve Days of Christmas.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Friday was a mega exasperating day for me.  I was looking for a Christmas block and could only find 12" blocks that I really liked.  So I proceeded to split each cutting dimension by half and went from there.  Well, I could tell with the third set of pieces I tried to assemble that this just wasn't working.  Either I figured wrong in my division of fractions - which is very likely - or my cutting was way off - which was also a good possibility.  After working on this all morning, I decided to head in another direction - a six inch block made out of Christmas fabric.  Oh, I forgot to mention that this is for a gift that I suddenly remembered I hadn't made for a stand that is coming in the mail soon.  Thank goodness for the email telling me the stand was shipping or I would have received it and been under even more pressure.  Here's what I did......
I started with the little snowman fussy cut square and cut a couple of squares and several triangles.

Sewed the triangles together to make bigger triangles......

Put the triangles together to make four squares.....

And ended up with this little 6 inch snowman star.

Now it was time to quilt the block....
I turned it over to see how it was looking and couldn't believe what I had done!  In all my years of quilting this is the very first time I have ever flipped over the corner and sewn it that way!  Once again, my seam ripper and I became best of friends.

Here is the back.  I thought the little bunny snow scene was cute for a backing.  You can see the tiny little hanging sleeve at the top of the block.

Here it is finally finished.  Who knew that making a little 6 inch block would take an entire day!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FINAL THOUGHT

Too bad we have to sleep.  Sometimes I think sleep is over rated.  I sometimes think about how much more I could accomplish if I didn't have to shut my eyes and get those mandatory 40 winks.  But the down side of not sleeping would be missing all of the wonderful dreams we have.  Some times it's where we get some of our best ideas.  However, I wish I could remember some of those 'wonderful ideas' when I opened my eyes in the morning.  Too bad our dreams can't be recorded on a DVR to be replayed back at a later time!

Leisure time is that five or six hours when you sleep at night.
 ~George Allen

May your Monday be merry!!

Thanks for the chance!♥

Leah said...

Oh my, what a tough question. I am sitting her and all my favorite desserts are running through my head. It is hard to pick my favorite. It has to be something creamy, soft, and flavorful. SO, I guess that could only mean cheesecake. Any kind of cheesecake with berries. mmmm good.

Jennifer said...

My favorite dessert is Death by Chocolate. Oh my...if I have to go then may it be by chocolate! This is a wonderful, creamy smooth and delicious chocolate cake. drool...
Speaking of drooling, these are GORGEOUS batik fabrics and I'd love to have them to "drool" over as I create something lovely with them.
Cheers!

Lana said...

My fav is called a Strawberry Kiss! Yum Yum!

Janet said...

What a wonderful block. Love the fabrics...

As for deserts - my favourite is trifle.

Gene Black said...

My favorite dessert is Creme Brulee or Flan. They are very much alike, but the caramelized sugar on top or the Creme Brulee is extra yummy.

I am not sure I would want to take the star apart..but then to get to use that lovely fabric, I would.

Barbieann said...

I spent my weekend organizing the party that was held saturday night and then getting larygngisitis. No fun.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Marcia said...

My favorite dessert is pecan pie. My favorite candy is chocolate, especially dark special chocolate. The batiks are wonderful. I read your blog regularly. Merry Christmas!

Shellie said...

I can't pick just a single dessert as a favorite. It all depends on what I'm in the mood for, although most things chocolate rank pretty high up on the list. I completely agree with the quotes at the beginning and end of this post. It's not at all uncommon for me to stay up into the wee hours to get more done.

Thanks for the generous giveaway.

Mimi said...

I love anything with chocolate! Yummmy! Thanks for celebrating in the giveaway!

quiltzyx said...

Your snowman mini-quilt is great. Sorry he gave you such a hard time!

My favorite dessert? It's hard to pick just one, but Boysenberry pie a la mode is up there, next to just about anything chocolate. Also love a good Creme Brulee (but don't like flan at all. Go figure!).

scottylover said...

My favorite dessert is pecan pie. Finding one that is done correctly is really hard, too! I can't bake one to save my life, though.

First,Linda, for the giveaway my favorite dessert is whatever's on the menu. I love sugar! But, truly, cookies are it for me. Any kind, but I love oatmeal.

Second, just wanted to tell you I love the block, and think the backing fabric is too sweet. Isn't it funny how sometimes the easy things turn into major events? Anyone who sews or crafts knows what you went through making that block. It just happens sometimes.

quiltlady59 at fuse dot net

Karen said...

There are so many things I like to eat that to pick one favorite is really hard. I would say pecan pie, but if there was a good looking piece of cake with good icing, well, it would be a tough choice. The thing is with me is that I don't like to eat a whole piece of anything. I'd rather have a bunch of little bites of everything.........Thanks!

Red Velvet Cake or Chocolate Angel Food Cake

Nancy Sue said...

My favorite dessert is bacon. No, not really!!! Just seeing if you were paying attention :) My favorite dessert is homemade ice cream! Perhaps it's the whining of the old motor on our ice cream maker growing up, that seemed to make the ice cream taste better!

Jackie said...

Black forest cake for this girl.

Oh Oh Oh - Bar cookies!!
If they have some sort of chocolate in them, they are for me.
All sorts- WITH Chocolate you can add- let's see; nuts or caramel, flaked coconut, chopped up butterfingers, plain chocolate drizzle. I'm stopping now!
Your batik is my favorite colors: rich jewel tones.

Christmas Batiks! Who knew there was such a thing as these gorgeous fabrics! (I don't get out much.) For dessert, I will eat anything chocolate. I really like Nanaimo Bars with some peppermint or Khalua flavoring!

Chiska said...

My favorite is the no cook cheesecake with my Mom's blueberry topping...partially cooked, partially fresh berries. Mmm!

joe tulips said...

A warm hunk of brownie with chocolate frosting...and with vanilla ice cream on top. Just thinking about it make me want to bake some brownies

Sarita said...

i think that is an awfully HARD question! *grin*
i love desserts of any and all kinds (except figs).
but i think if i could only eat one dessert for the rest of my life, it would be crumbles/crisps. But i'm not going to commit myself to a single fruit; no way! *grin*
thanks for the opportunity to win! :)

Erin M. said...

By far, it's chocolate chip cookies. Maybe I'll go have one right now. Thanks for the giveaway. Batiks are beautiful.

Tawny said...

My fave dessert is ice cream!

croceau said...

I can't eat gluten or dairy these days so that's knocked out a lot of my favourite desserts. But one still stands: flourless almond orange cake,. Yum!!

Anne said...

I love tiramisu! It's creamy, coffee-flavored goodness! Your pie sounds delicious, too.

MoeWest said...

Thanks for the wonderful giveaway and Happy Holidays! My favourite dessert is cherry pie, but any fruit pie will do!

Gillian said...

What a great giveaway! Thanks for hosting. It's so hard to pick out my favorite desert.... I love them all! :) But I think I'd have to go with ice cream. A new gourmet ice cream shop just opened in town, and they have the most delicious flavors. Yummmmmm. It's never too cold outside for ice cream!

Julia said...

I'm a real pudding/desert kinda girl - I always find room for pudding, whether it's fruit salad and jelly or Christmas pudding with custard. I DO like a bit of lemon meringue pie though - nom nom!

Sarah McGrath said...

I love pavlova. It's light enough that you still have room for it at the end of the meal, and you can use whatever fruit is in season.

Anything Cheesecake!

Chocolate molten cake - the absolute best! Pioneer woman has the best recipe. MMMMMMM. Chocolate is like fabric, you can never have enough!

catnap said...

If you could see me you'd know I'm quite fond of dessert. Yes. A favorite? Too hard to choose, but chocolate mousse jumped to mind first, so there you go.

Anya said...

Tiramisu is my favorite dessert! Thanks for the chance!

joyce said...

Blackberry crisp- yum!

Bunny said...

Creme Brulee is my absolute favourite!

Kylie said...

Right now I am in love with Martha Stewart's Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies. I've already made 3 batches this season and will be making 2 more tomorrow. kcarlson1152[at]hotmail.com

Martina said...

Lovely give away! Thanks so much!My favourite dessert is apple-tiramisu! Mmh!

Talin's Corner said...

My favorite is tiramisu, which I cannot have any more. I hate that I am lactose intolerant. Oh well, thank God I still have chocolate to calm me.
