I'm so happy that I am finally posting on my blog because it has been so much fun reading your comments. It seems like I really procrastinate on posting - which according to everyone is a very bad thing to do. So maybe I should have answered "naughty" on the Henry Glass Naughty or Nice Christmas Party Blog??? Here is the link to the blog at Henry Glass so you can see what the designers are up to this Holiday Season http://henryglassfabrics.blogspot.com/
If you love Christmas as much as I do, then you might like my new book, Christmas Sparkle. There are 7 fun holiday projects. If you are interested in purchasing a copy, then simply click this link to my retail website at The Christmas Shoppe http://www.oldstnick.net/item.php?item_id=4788. I don't have a huge inventory right now so I will notify you if there will be a delay in shipping while I wait for my reorder to come in.
Yesterday I promised you a look at my newest fabric line, Simply Christmas. It will be shipping in May. I've just scanned a few of the pieces (I apologize that the colors aren't quite right - I think my scanner is starting to croak). But if you click this link you will see the whole collection plus there is a free pattern to download: http://www.henryglassfabrics.com/collection/simply-christmas/.
Here is a new version of the cover quilt from Christmas Sparkle remade with the Simply Christmas fabrics. I really love the reds and greens in this collection plus I have never met a polka dot I don't like!
And just to add a little humor to the day I'm going to post another Christmas picture. This one is from 1953 (notice I've been posting the pictures in chronological order??). Yes, in Los Angeles they had people who would come around to your house before Christmas with a pony. You just got right up there and smiled for the camera. You couldn't keep the pony though. Besides our backyard at this house was about as big as a postage stamp.
