This has been a long week with very little sewing going on here. I am enjoying these blocks that can be made in less than an hour (not counting deciding on fabric) and using up my old Christmas/winter fabrics.
Isn't it interesting that you can see what you want to see sometimes and not what is actually there? For example this block "feels" like a Christmas block but there is not any Christmas fabric in it....oops I just saw the holly fabric that I used for the windows. Oh well you get what I mean.
Again except for the background all of these are not Christmas specific either.
I am not sure what will happen with these blocks but I am enjoying the simple picking and choosing and sewing without a plan.
Do you have a recipe box? I have a very vintage one and I love that it is loved and well used. I will admit I use online recipes, have my own binder of recipes handed down and who can live without the Joy of Cooking? Today I was looking for the Swedish Oatmeal cookies that Marian at guild brought that were a big hit a couple of months back.
There just is something simple and basic about opening a box and plucking out a recipe card in the handwriting of someone you love.
You never know what you will find......yep simple, basic and in the handwriting of a loved one.
PS If you want the recipe for the cookies let me know!
