Simplicity and a blank canvas

I made quick use of this cozy red flannel. Our tiny tree was cold and naked. Immediately after receiving this fabric it served as a tree skirt, making our tannenbaum decent and warm. There it stayed, and as we left for our annual two week northern Midwest Christmas tour I decided it was perfect. No modification needed. (note to self - convince both families to move to a tropical location.) Perhaps next year it will get trimmed or updated in some fancy way, but this Christmas simplicity was nice.

The next round of fabric went on its this weekend and should be arriving in a mailbox near you shortly. I decided that to celebrate the new year we needed a "blank canvas". Start your creative engines!

Fabric #4 and following

The list of addresses we received with the first packet is also the order for the fabric-senders. I've been asked to supply the order so there is no doubt. If anyone needs the addresses let me know and I'll email them.

1 - Ruth (winter red) 2 - Kathy (fall leaves) 3 - Valerie (red flannel)
4 - Alycia 5 - Kate 6 - Angela 7 - Sue 8 - Karen

Someday I'll post my red flannel project - the day after Kathy posts her leaf project. :) I'm almost ready to start my next craft project; I just have one more holiday season thing to do tonight. (I'm serving a spaghetti and bison meatballs supper for Pastor's family. That sounds like an Epiphany meal, doesn't it?) So send me some fabric Alycia!

P.S. Does anyone know how to receive email notifications from this site if something new is posted? I know another blog site (Wordpress) that lets you subscribe to posts and to comments, and I haven't seen anything like that on blogger. Ideas?
