Moda Blockheads Week #39

Blockheads Week #39 Question of the Week

Have you started your Christmas preparations? Baking? Shoppping? Made a gift-wish list for yourself?
Kinda. I watch for interesting small gifts throughout the year for stocking stuffers (I LOVE stockings!) that I think the adults and grankids will like based on their hobbies/passions - wine glasses with built in ice cubes for Amanda, simple clothing patterns/fabric for Aleece, golf stuff for the twins, dinner and a movie for Nicole. Of course, anything electronic for the boys.  Some silly, some really cool. After what the family calls "gift interogations" at Thanksgiving, I make my final lists. Baking? No so much. Everyone brings appetizers and desserts so I don't have to cook as much. I love the variety of items from homemade meatballs to sushi to Brent's famous bacon-wrapped jalepenos to Nicole's best chocolate chip cookies EVER! It's an eclectic mix, but so fun to try a bite (or two) of everything.

Block #39 - Framed Star by Jo Morton

Jo's star would make a wonderful red/green Christmas quilt, right?  Kathy made her version in low contrast reds with earth tones. Lovely. Joy chose red/tan/blue for a patriotic vibe. Love'em both.

Happy Shopping!


  1. I’m behind in everything this year. Especially decorating. I haven’t thought of one gift yet. I’m usually finished shopping by December 1. Geez! I need an intervention!

  2. I have decorated and hung the stockings! The tree is getting smaller as I get older. That way there is less ornaments to hang. I'm trying to simplify. Both kids are gone and live far away. My daughter may come home though. I have finished MOST of my shopping but reserve the right to add some things.

  3. .I am pretty much pleased with your good work.You put really very helpful information... golf stuff
