I Refuse to Dread Christmas…

It is so easy for me to dread Christmas.  There is so much to do.  There is so much pressure.  I hate decorating the house.  And work is ALWAYS extra busy as people rush to get things done before the end of the year.

I wanted to make a hanging for my dining room that was Christmas-y, so that I could go simple red-and-green with the decorating.  Actually, “wanted” isn’t the right verb… maybe “felt compelled to”.  So something I love, quilting, suddenly became very chore-like.  Especially since much precious time was fruitlessly spent trying to find inspiration.  I finally landed on making a christmas tree out of a bazillion 1/2-square triangles.

Do you know what makes me even grumpier than the Holidays?  1/2-square triangles.  Luckily, I got inspiration just in time from the Tula Pink City Sampler book.  I am working on something that I LOVE.  Suddenly Christmas doesn’t seem so bad.

These blocks are so fun to make.  Quick, unique, and I hope making them all out of green will give a Christmas-y feel, despite all the blooms in the fabric.

More later…
