eight maids a milking.....

Happy Winter Solstice!  Did you know today was the first day of Hanukkah?  and only 4 days til Christmas!  So much going on and everyone is so busy.  Don't forget that this is the time to celebrate and spend time with family.  Try not to get bogged down with the commercialism of the season.  Take time to be still and really appreciate your family.  Maybe take a trip to bentleyville.

Here is a hint for bindings.  What do you do with the extra binding after you finish off a quilt?  stick it in a bag, these scraps will make a fun binding for an art quilt, child or baby quilt, or scrappy quilt.   You will find that you can even mix flannels with cottons.  You could also iron the seam out of it and make a strip quilt.

Great job again Deb, I really thought more people knew the twelve days of christmas.
just in case I forgot to mention, I do have a prize for the person that answers this question, as well as the people who post.  I will be posting the January class schedule on Dec 26, so don't forget to check the blog!  So here we go,
On the ninth day of christmas my true love gave to me
