The following photos are from December when our son was visiting us during his holiday vacation. We wanted him to see our favorite German town in Texas.
We have visited Fredericksburg often over the years. I have taken and posted a lot of photos of this town, so this time I decided to focus my lens on smaller unusual things that caught my eye.
Except for photos of the two story Christmas Pyramid which is my favorite German Christmas decoration.
Looks like this truck is loaded and ready for Christmas!
The two steeples belong to St. Mary's Catholic Church. The old steeple is in front of the new steeple in the background.
I have been staying very busy. I have been getting all sorts of new ideas from browsing the internet. (like I need more projects, right?)
I had to stop surfing the web, so I could finish my last custom order. Thanks to this customer, I have received three more Happy Camper orders! She did a shout out on "Glampers on the Loose" Facebook group. I had joined the group after she had told me about some of the groups she followed. I'm getting all sorts of new ideas from the photos they are posting!
Back in November, I started working on a new baby quilt using a pattern from one of my old magazines. I have used the fast sew and rotary cut method a few times over the years with no problems. This one turned into a nightmare! The measurements for the flying geese were so far off that the finished length was over an inch too wide. I had already cut out all the pieces, thinking (or not thinking) that the pattern had been tested since it was published in a well-known quilt magazine.
After consulting the internet, trial and error on downsizing the flying geese, I finally got the correct size. Very frustrating, but lesson learned - make one block BEFORE cutting up all the fabric. I might not be so lucky next time. This time the measurements were too large...next time they might be too small.
Well, I need to get back to the custom orders. I also have a request in for another Black Cat in the Pink quilt!
