The lighted village is so cute! And what a pretty pie. Those printed papers look very Turkey Feathers. Have a wonderful holiday!

Thanks Jane, have a super week!


I like the way the "big stitch" quilting looks. I learned to quilt with perle cotton last summer. It took awhile to get used to using a larger needle and heavier thread, but my stitches improved with time. Of course, I do like neat, small quilting stitches, too!

Your village is wonderful!! Your quilt is beautiful and your big stitch looks perfect to me. Love the yellow squares amongst all the red!


I love the way your quilt looks. I wouldn't change a thing. I hope you and your family had a good Thanksgiving. Mine was spent with family, which is always a joy.
Your little village looks like it belongs on the bookshelf. Such a warm glow. Have a great day!

Yes, I think the big stitches are growing on me. The perle cotton would probably have been a better choice than the strand floss. I will remember that in the future...thanks for mentioning that!

Thank you! We are enjoying the season with all its finery.

I'm glad you had a good Thanksgiving with family. That village will probably outlast Christmas--it is a joy!
