Yesterday, I finished these two little WOOL blocks. If you can remember…way back… these blocks were free patterns given out by Granola Girl during a Home for the Holidays Blog Hop…a few years ago.
I LOVED these two blocks…they evoked such images of my childhood Christmases. Going out into the woods in our little Datsun truck, cutting down a WILD tree and bringing it home to decorate! Ahhh the good old days.
There were originally three blocks in this series…all a gift from Granola Girl. The third block was a wild turkey…but wild turkeys don’t live around here so I didn’t stitch it. Alas..lots of human turkeys but no real turkeys!
‘They’ say arrangements should always be in odd numbers…SEW I have been racking my brain to come up with a third block…but nothing is as meaningful as the first two…so I think I will stop here…at two…and break the ODD rule!
I have some old barn wood frames that might work with these…I will hold auditions later today!
SEW..I wonder what happened to Granola Girl? She seems to have stopped blogging and I miss her…She had great pictures of the great outdoors..in particular birds and wildlife. She also showed quilts/pennies of her unique woodsy designs. Her patterns really reminded me of around here…with the fir and cedar trees and all the wild life…minus the turkey of course!
I also wonder what happened to Datsun trucks…? NOW there’s a mystery…
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P
