Starting to look like Christmas .........

It is starting to look like christmas in our home ......

I made this quilt " CHRISTMAS HOUSE " quite a few years ago and so enjoy hanging my quilts up for the holidays.

For the last 4 days we have been decorating the house, wrapping presents and getting ready to have new concrete walking paths put in the back yard. YES that is right concrete walking paths. I know it is not the time of year to be doing this but boy it sure is going to be nice when they are done.

A Very Special Gift from a Very Special Friend..........

I received this VERY SPECIAL GIFT from my VERY SPECIAL FRIEND Doreen ! Isn't is just amazing ! Doreen used a Fig Tree exclusive Club Member Pattern using ALL Fig Tree fabrics ! I JUST LOVE IT! She machine pieced , hand appliqued and machine quilted this beautiful quilt ! She used a gorgeous brown batik fabric for the appliqued pumpkin and customized the center of the pumpkin with a " B" for Babich ( my last name ) She also made me these AMAZING Acorn people that she created ALL by hand. They are only 3" tall and SO intricately done. She also sent me a yummy apple cider candle and a box of Dove Happy Birthday chocolates. When I unwrap each chocolate each wrapper inside has a special b-day message ! WOW!! I must have been a REAL good girl this year to receive such a Thoughtful & Kind Gifts . THANK YOU DOREEN ! I LOVE , LOVE LOVE EVERYTHING ! YOU ARE SUCH A SPECIAL FRIEND !!

WINTER ROSE QUILT........ This beautiful quilt is a original design by my good friend Doreen , go check out her blog and see her quilt ! Together we each made this quilt and they are identical. You see I live in California and Doreen lives in Virginia. Even though we are thousands of miles apart we have become very close friends.Over the internet we made these quilts together. We have the same taste in quilts and this quilt was alot of fun for us to work on together. Doreen made the actual quilt blocks and we had our quilts machine quilted exactly the same. I am looking forward to our next quilt together.
I know it is a christmas quilt but I plan on keeping it hung on my dining room wall all thru winter.
