Sew Cal Gal is up to her old Christmas tricks!
Yup, it’s that time of year again…it’s her annual Christmas Quilt Show…and here I am with no Christmas Quilts to show…BUT I did just finish the ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’ pillow…I wonder if that will do?…or will I get tossed out of the show on my ear? Shhhh…if you don’t say anything, neither will I and maybe Darlene won’t notice! It does have a Christmas theme…and it IS a warm pillow…
Zooming in for a close-up…My girl seems surprised to be in the Show!
As luck would have it, I found this red and green plaid wool in the remnant bin at JoAnn’s today…SEW I was able to finish this baby off and in plenty of time for Christmas!
Sorry Rylie…I didn’t mean to wake you…
We have TWO VERY tired poopies on our hands tonight…must have been that LONG and steep hike up to see Bob Hope’s house this morning..
FYI~This is a JoAnn Mullaly (JAM) pattern and you can order it from the Country Loft Quilt Shop. While you are there have a look around…LOTS of eye candy!!
The pillow is wool applique stitched onto a wool pillow.
Sew Cal Gal’s Quilt Shows are always lots of fun to enter with lots of Christmas Quilts (and pillows:) to see and tons of inspiration to get you motivate for your next Christmas project…Hurry over now…enter and view…YOU KNOW YOU WANNA!
Before I go I just HAVE to show you Bob Hope’s house which sits high on a mountain overlooking the Palm Springs area…looks like a space ship, doesn’t it!
Resting…and enjoying the view…
It took us an hour to get to Bob Hope’s house…see the trail…narrow and zigzags up the side of the mountain…
You go around one mountain and suddenly see it…perched on top…KING of the Mountain! Apparently Bob Hope hated this house and used it only for entertaining. He lived in a modest bungalow in an older subdivision behind Palm springs.
It was a great hike…a little strenuous at times but definitely worth the view!
Have a Wicked Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P
