"Laura had never seen ...

such a tree."

On the Banks of Plum Creek

by Laura Ingalls

I really enjoyed this chapter in the book.

Three Christmases are described and this is the second one.

 This Christmas is delightfully portrayed.

Laura gets the most beautiful gifts she has ever received (a fur cape !)

Everybody is happy ...

Oh ! Isn't this the nicest Christmas

Mary and Laura stayed by the fire ...

sewing their nine-patch quilt blocks.

*****

I imagined this pattern while reading this sentence in Laura's book

Little House in the Big Woods

Like Laura and her sisters, as soon as pioneer children could handle a needle,

they were taught to make nine-patch quilt blocks from nine squares of fabric

because they were simple to sew.

The only stupid thing with words is ...

the spelling of them

Laura Ingalls 

******

I love this quote by Laura Ingalls because I love reading and writing

and I am also my DH's proof reader so this sentence is very special to me ...

I think that I will work thoroughly on this theme ...

spelling bee, slate work ... I don't know for the moment ...

Laura wished Pa could pick the largest star ...

... from the thread on which it hung from the sky

and give it to her."

Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House on the Prairie

*********

Maybe some of you will stitch this pattern to pay tribute to their father since it is about 

a father and his daughter.

My father was in my mind while stitching this design ...

he passed away 11 years ago ...

Prim Gatherings

My love for the American Prim' Style keeps growing ...

no doubt, I am totally hooked by the prim' style

and I cherished each prim' piece as a precious treasure !!!

This little pillow was inspired to me by a collection of vintage labels:

it is very simple but it would look great in any prim' home !!!
