"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 ...

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.

A new pattern available

HERE

Completed pillow, SOLD, thank you !

A log cabin in the Big Woods

Little House in the Big Woods is one of my favourite books in the whole series.

I love the fact that Laura describes the daily routine

and many things that were part

of her life as a pioneer girl.

I have learned a lot of things and

I have already read it at least four or five times.

(I have sewn a little pouch  but for those of you

who fear sewing, the size is perfect for a little pillow !)

Enjoy stitching !!!
