Christmas In My Heart Day #2 & Giveaway

Little Glitter Houses

Welcome to day 2 of the Christmas In My Heart Blog Hop. I hope you enjoyed the ideas from the other bloggers yesterday, and entered the drawing for a $25 gift certificate from The Fat Quarter Shop. There is another one today, and every day of the hop! Seems a little like Christmas in November to me.

This is me--Julie, and Minnie, one of the Doxie Girls.

Today is a very special blog post. 
I've joined with Grow Your Blog 2015 along with hundreds of other bloggers. 
Our host is Vicki at 2 Bags Full, and may I say thank you, first of all. 
There are some rules to abide by, so allow me to follow them to a "T",
and then we'll get on to our Linky Party and a Giveaway!

I'm Julie--a Modern Quilter.
I love modern fabric, intense pattern, and improvisational piecing.
I'm all about machine quilting, but occasionally quilt one by hand. 
I would pick a scrap quilt as my favorite 8 days of the week.

 I Dream in Color.

My Christmas Mantle and Musings

My "Need to Make or Buy" Christmas list is very small in spite of our family's size, but it still has some big holes in it. I may not get it all done before the big day, but that's still okay. I know there are people who believe the holiday is ruined if the presents aren't just perfect--or complete, but I live in the real world. I don't have little children anymore, and we're all very busy people. Realistically, there isn't always enough of me to go around. Any of this sound familiar?

"Tradition!" (said while humming Fiddler on the Roof)

Whatever your beliefs, the Season is upon us, like it or not, and it's here with its many traditions.

I was brought up in a little Mennonite church, in a small town in Ohio. My family had lived there for generations. Therefore, my life was wrought with tradition, most of which I challenged, and much to my grandparent's and parent's chagrin. Some traditions made no sense and didn't 'catch', but others slipped in, binding with my brain and heart, and demanding to be observed this time of year. Combine them with my husband's, those our family adopted, and a Moravian community saturated in them, and we have one really patch-worked holiday here! If marriage isn't a compromise, the holidays are!
