Hi Fellow Quilters,
Welcome to the “My Happy Place” Row-Along, hosted by our friend Marian at Seams to Be Sew! Thank you, Marian, for all of your time and planning expertise. We’re grateful to you! Thank you to our wonderful sponsors too! Isn’t it great to have so many chances to win a fun and fabulous prize? A huge thanks to Northcott Fabrics for providing the fabrics that we used to make our row this year.
Our happy place is right in front of the Christmas tree! Christmas is a magical time, even now that our children have all grown up and moved away, because we have our pets to entertain us.
Imagine a Christmas tree, decorated with colorful old-fashioned ornaments. But wait- the helpful little mice aren’t quite finished decorating yet. The treetop angel must be placed in the perfect position atop the tree. The ornaments must be distributed to show them off to their best advantage. It takes a coordinated effort to make the tree look beautiful for Christmas morning. Thank you, little mouse friends!
In the meantime, the kittens are up to some mischief in the tree. They’ve discovered the tempting Christmas ornaments, and have started to play with them. Let’s hope that they don’t notice the busy little mice, or we’ll have a real ruckus on our hands. . .
And finally, the patient family dog is waiting under the tree, on the lookout just in case Santa arrives before the humans wake up on Christmas morning. “My goodness! One of the gifts is moving.” The lid pops open and, to his delight, a cute little pug puppy peeks out! “Oh, yes! I’ve been a VERY good dog this year. Is it time to open the rest of the gifts yet?”
We used the following fabrics, generously provided by Northcott Fabrics, to create our row model:
Oh, yes, it is going to be a VERY Merry Christmas- My Happy Place! Our “Under the Christmas Tree” row pattern is available for purchase, right here!
