I had to do it. This is the Swell Christmas kit by Urban Chiks. Do you know Moda is sold out of these already? Fatquartershop is as well and won't be getting anymore. I found one on Etsy for a great price and snapped it up. Whew. I would have been so disappointed to miss out on this little kit. I think it will be so sweet on Eva's bed during the Christmas season.
When you open up the box, the presentation is so darling. You have your instructions, the glorious fabrics and the Retro Santa appliqué. I have not read the instructions yet, but to look at it, that must be what it is.
At the rate my summer sewing is plodding along, I had better crank up the pace a bit to get this done and quilted by November.
There are still some kits available if you search Etsy and quiltshops.com. If you think you want one, don't wait too long.
Hope you all had a great weekend, and that the father's in your lives did as well. On special occasions, my dad often asks me to make him tomato aspic, a dish he enjoys, but no one else in the family will touch. I have come to like it actually. Talk about something retro. It is made with V8 juice, Knox gelatin, diced celery, red pepper, avocado, and tiny cocktail shrimp. Lots of tangy flavor from vinegar and Worchestershire sauce. My mom used to make it for him when she was with us, and it always brings back happy memories.
