Getting into the spirit of the season.

Snowflakes ...
Is it me, or do these snowflakes look like little icy hexagon quilt blocks?

 Alexey Kljatov has a talent.  See his amazing collection of Snowflake and Crystal photography:

Quilting:  Switching out the quilts/decorations/wall hangings from Fall to Holiday decor. Refining my newest Tree Skirt when I can sneak a minute.  Quilting for clients.

Holiday treats... just when I'm starting to think about baking... Look! It's a Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange at Carol's! Mmmmm... Do you have a favorite recipe?  Click the picture to see some recipes and link your own.

Rehearsals have been underway for several weeks now, preparing for this year's Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas concerts.  Our guests will be Deborah Voigt and John Rhys-Davies.  (I practice my part while I'm quilting!)  Last year's amazing concert featuring Alfie Boe, Hal "The Candy Bomber" Halvorsen, and Tom Brokaw will air several times this month on PBS stations.  Here's an article and a tiny little preview/exerpt from last year.
PBS will air this performance in a full hour special on these dates:
Dec 10th at 8pm EST, Dec 12th at 9pm EST, and Christmas Eve, Dec 24th at 9pm EST.

And look, they've done it again!  It's my favorite Piano Guys.
"Angels We Have Heard On High"

Gloria, in Excelsis Deo!


  1. Quilting and practicing singing...sounds like a fun combination! :O)

  2. Bet your sewing room sounds lovely. Thanks for sharing the beautiful holiday music.

  3. Oh my. These videos are just wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing them. I might just have to repost The Piano Guys too. I had never heard them before but now I am a fan.

  4. Nerd comment: the snowflakes are hexagons: that's how ice forms, due to shape and electrical properties of water molecules :) Great design inspirations drawn from nature too!


So happy you stopped by for a visit! Thank you!
