A year or so ago, I saw someone working on this lovely Christmas project. The pattern is "A Long Time Ago in Bethelehem" and was in the July 2012 issue of Australian Homespun magazine. After hunting everywhere for a copy, I discovered it was available as an e-magazine download, so I was able to find the original pattern, and the link to the rest of the blocks. Pardon the wrinkles and folds, as I haven't pressed any of these since they were completed.
Block 5 is called the Reluctant Donkey. I love the humour in each of the blocks!
Block 2 is called "Kitchen Sink Camel". This reminded me of a picture that my Father-in-law took of DH's Grandmother packing after a month visit. There was so much stuff that he added the old kitchen sink to the pile! I wish I had a copy of the picture....
Last night I noticed that my bin of leaders and enders was getting full, so I sat, while listening to the end of an audio book, and stitched the "2-patches" into 3's then into 9-patches.
Head over to Judy's blog, Patchwork Times, to see what others are working on this week!
