Feed Sacks for the Holidays

Christmas and Chanukah are less than a week away, and like everyone else, I'm in the throes of preparation for family and guests to arrive. Menu-planning is at the top of the list, along with holiday decorating, because to be honest, I haven't done much more than plop our Christmas tree in its holder in the living room—no lights, no ornaments, not yet.

But it'll all come together, it always does. And however it turns out is fine, because both my daughters will be back in the nest soon (along with Maggie's fiancé EJ and dog Lily) and that is what really matters. Such a treat!

Before the holidays take over, I wanted to share the video Janine made for the feed sack book—it provides a little peek into the book's contents for a quick browse.

Feed Sacks: The Colourful History of a Frugal Fabric






The book has also gotten two lovely reviews—one by Rita of 

Red Pepper Quilts

 (how does she do all the incredible sewing she does and find time to blog, too?) and another lovely one by Patricia of

Okan Arts

 (Patricia has promised to unveil the wonders of yukata and share her expertise with me). Thank you!
