Advent is my favourite part of the Christmas celebration.
Decorating with lights in the middle of the darkest season, the smells from baking and cooking.
I do not bake as much as before - just our favorites and I am not washing down the whole house.
We have our favourite dishes and our favourite traditions - something to look forward to.
The quilt is quilted and ready for binding. Straight line quilting is not my favourite and even with a dual feed system on my sewing machine I find it challenging.
As I use cotton batting and wash the quilt when it is done, the seams gets a little more buried. I like the look then, a little antique.
