Christmas spirit

 I pulled out my favorite Christmas quilt the other day and have been enjoying snuggling up with it.
my snuggly Christmas quilt 
I love the colors; the figgy pudding fabric by Basic Grey is just perfect. I would love it if they reprinted this line, I'd totally buy more. The red and white would make a gorgeous little girl's skirt.
We also finally got our Christmas tree up after not having enough lights, and then buying the wrong lights (bright white and warm white *don't* go together) and then finally getting the right lights. I am not a very fancy person when it comes to my Christmas tree, but I love my tree and my ornaments. (I will try to get a good pic of the tree in the next couple days.)

I wanted to remind you of my scrappy stocking tutorial; it was posted last year over on the Sew We Quilt blog. These aren't difficult to make and I think they turn out pretty cute. I'd love to see a picture if you make one, ok?
Also, are you on Pinterest? I am trying to find (and pin) the cutest handmade ornament ideas and then I think I'll pick one or two to make a few of this year. You can follow my boards here if you want.

I've also been knitting and working on my circle quilt; more on that soon!

Your Christmas quilt looks lovely, do you remember which solid its with? I have a jelly roll of Figgy pudding to use up but felt it was quite dark for my tastes but I live how it looks with the aqua.

I'm making some placemats with Fruitcake by Basic Gray right now. Love those stockings! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas in your new home.

I love your Christmas quilt. I have one Christmas quilt in Fruitcake; the other is a kit I have yet to make up. Such a great fabric line.
