It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I took this picture yesterday as I was hanging my glass snowflakes.  We made these at my mom's shop a few years ago.  They are easy and fun to make and I love seeing them in the winter!  I usually leave them up until March.  This one isn't as bright as it looks here.

And this is what it looks like this morning!  I was excited when I woke up to snow.  Funny how I've changed my tune, since I now work from home.  I hated the snow when I had to drive in it every day.  Now I just love it - so beautiful and peaceful.  Perfect day for sewing!  I was just getting ready to take this picture, and the cardinal flew in - perfect timing!

This is the tree in my sewing room.  So many ornaments that I love.  They always bring back so many memories.

And a few Christmas trees of a different variety!  These trees are 1 1/2" paper pieced pendants - you can see them on my website.  The smaller ones are 1 1/4".

 If you signed up for my "Surprise" program, then you received one of these.  Our cute ruler boxes with a pin cushion and some Clover binding clips.  I love these and hope to make more to take to shows next year.

And some pictures of it all while I was getting them ready to mail - it's a process, for sure.

 Part of them all ready to go!

And currently on my design wall.  The top is block 3 of Primitive Garden - I'm doing this as a sew along and have a Facebook page, if you would like to join us.  The one on the lower left will be a new pattern one of these days and the lower right is a Primitive Gathering pattern that I finally finished.  Guess I should take a picture of the whole thing!

This is a busy time of year for me - lots of people have been doing their Christmas shopping on my website! (Thanks to all of you!!).  Here are just a few that we finished up yesterday - all 1 1/2" pendants.

And now it's time to get busy!  Hope you have a great day!


  1. Loved the whole post, Julie!
    Very cool snowflake in the window, and I love the wintery view outside the window--and with a Cardinal!! I am so jealous. Wish we had those here!
    Great sewing room tree--about 4 times the size of my sewing room tree. I see some familiar ornaments on it. : )
    More wonderful jewelry. You are amazing with the tiny things you create!
    The pincushion boxes are such a good idea. Perfect for binding a quilt. And they look so colorful and fun--even when they are all wrapped up.
    I should say you need to show a photo of that whole little finish! Did you do Bud Garden, or Little Buds in black?

  2. What a whole lot of loveliness! You have been busy, but I'm glad you are still making time for quilting. The snow photo with the cardinal is amazing!
