Working on a little Christmas in July. Candy Coated Christmas Fabric by Thimbleberries for RJR is from my stash purchased from the Quilted Apple in Phoenix many years ago. I found a fabulous Jinny Beyer border fabric gifted me from mahquilter stash for the borders that I can't wait to put in. I'll post when finished.
Pattern is Vintage Christmas by Erica Arndt of ericamade designs. ericaarndt

Today I have a Christmas card to share. It is a shaker easel card, with glass glitter. I used products from the September Release from Papertrey Ink/Ink to Paper. These products include: Splendid Snowflakes Die, On The Border: Splendid Snowflakes Border Die, On The Border: Splendid Snowflakes Frame, Pleasing Envelopes: Special Delivery Die, Cheerful Tree Stamp Set. The color blue I used was Enchanted Evening. I love the sparkle of the glitter glass. I shook the card and wanted some of the glitter to stick to the snowflake. I used two embossing folders from my stash. This was a fun card to make..with some fun and creative products.

Being my own sound healer today with a wondeful D Major melodic drum from geniusdrums. Feeling into the suffering of the world and offering solace and prayer through music. Just after I recorded this video I got a knock on my door from an Amnesty International representative. They are fighting for the rights of refugees around the world through policy changes on a larger scale. Though I did not donate right then and there, our conversation got me thinking about how I could begin to support refugees having their human right to amnesty denied, and their families divided forcibly just 20 minutes south of me.
I had a chance to join some friends last year around Christmas to go across the border and share musical instruments, toys and supplies to one ofthe encampments. But I know I can do more.
So I’ve decided to add the local organization Border Angels as one of the charities through my online sales.
Join me in supporting the organizations that are doing the hard work on the ground to better the lives of those who truly need help: Yoga Gives Back, Voices of Our City Choir and Border Angels.
Basic rights...to resources for survival, to love, to compassion, to opportunities to begin again, to safe haven....to everything you probably take for granted in some way if you are reading this.

Full Frontal Friday‼️
Just so as I’m not completely typecast as an early C20 ragged quilt top rescuer, here’s something a little less ragged and a little earlier (c 1890 I think). It has a crazy border on three sides. The top row of 9-patch blocks, unprotected without the crazy border, is very ragged and needs repair by partial replacement or it could be repaired by removal. Several other 9-patch blocks in the body of the top are torn and also need to be repaired by replacement. Seams are minute and some have popped. Don’t laugh, but one of my thoughts is to totally remake the 9-patch section. This would allow the blocks to be resized in order to provide a more robust seam allowance. In turn, that would provide the opportunity to partially reconfigure and augment the crazy border so that it could continue around all four sides.
After a small outing on the posh bed, this project will not come out again until after Christmas. That’s a promise to myself that I will keep. Luckily, I have plenty of roughly age-appropriate oddments to complete this project.
