TRUCKING ALONG!




I am trucking along with a new holiday decor theme!
I have quite a collection of the 
Vintage Red Truck/Christmas Tree ornaments.
 Last year and they were very hard to find.
This year...this theme is EVERYWHERE!

This post is about the fabric I had to have.
It takes me back to the farm I grew up on
with lots of great holiday memories and SNOW!
I found two prints...one with the trucks and
one with the barn scenes by Henry Glass

I fussy cut centers for Economy Blocks.
Its a fav block if you have a special novelty print.
And of course, I pulled some Grunge Red and Green
from my stash and the black and red plaid.



I decided to make pillow covers for a couple really
old and ugly toss pillows!



I found a black and gray print for the pillow backs.



And in no time...DONE


They just sing...over the river and thru the woods!


And will look great on my front porch for the Holidays.



and they also say...come home for the holidays.



I have a pile of blocks left and my hubby wants a quilt
with a flannel back...I will add some red and black check fabric blocks 
sew it will work up quickly.
The question is...THIS Christmas or NEXT?



Stay tuned because my Holiday decorating starts soon
and you will see a lot of this theme.

YES, I am "one of those people" who puts Christmas BEFORE
Thanksgiving every year! I am "thankful" I can do that!

My Foyer, Dining Room and front Porch
will make you want to "Come Home for the Holidays"
