Country Loft Wool Crazy Potluck and Oh yes Christmas Decorating

                                    Dinner is off the table the pans are soaking . Hubby enjoyed my dinner and I can send off my post of my day in Southern California. Maulie is not being a good little shitzu coming in when I call her tonight . Now I have to say cheezer to get her in the house. Cookie doesn’t seem to work anymore. I sure had an enjoyable day!                 


                                Ho Ho Ho !!! It's Country Loft in Southern California
Country Loft is ready for Christmas…I was so busy trying to take pictures before the potluck so my blogger friends could enjoy my part of the world.

 I love those Snowmen that sparkle

               Cheri Payne Quilts and patterns

                                                      Kathy was busy cutting wool in another room

Today was Wool Crazy author JoAnn Mullaly wool crazy classes potluck. Also JoAnn writes for Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine.It was a time for different classes to share how they’re progressing on their quilts plus a potluck is usually a time to learn a few more recipes. The Country Loft decorations can’t help but get you into the Holiday spirit. The dolls are JoAnn patterns that are fun to do.This is JoAnn's blog
                                                      There are so many kits to choose from

                                                   I had a gift certificate so I bought some linen for my newest rug and a winter issue of A Simple Life I am drooling over the pictures. This is a great issue with a piece written by Tasha Tudors daughter.
I have a rug hooking design I created that I am looking forward to starting after Christmas.

 JoAnn author of two books on projects using wool
and a wonderful person.
   Can you see by all the smiles how much
 fun we were having!

A gift from beth

Block of the months starting in January  

 An interesting way to show fields and sheep 

           What a great purple quilt

                                                      I like Suzy's colors in her quilt

I LOVE it when you show pictures from this place. I always get ideas for new rugs. And I may have drooled on the keyboard looking at those wool bundles.

Oh my gawd! I wanna go shopping as I saw so many cool things I'd like to own. I love those crazy quilts but know that I'd never have the patience to make one for myself.

Thanks for showing and teasing me.

Sorry, I've been running behind my blogger friends like a dog trying to catch his breath.

Wow, all those beautiful pictures makes my head spin. What a great place to be. I can see that you had a great time. Thanks for taking us along. I just love it when someone takes the time to show us all the great places they visit. I'm practically drooling just looking at all the nice woo and and everything.

Although I don't decorate in Primitive, I still love it. JB
