Good Morning, Quilters!
Does anyone know what a sugarplum is?
Would you be surprised that it often contains caraway or cardamom--and that one historian described making them as “one of the most difficult and tedious methods in craft confectionary…”?? Read more HERE–a very enjoyable article!
Binding it…slightly tedious, though I love hand sewing…Machine stitched on the front and hand stitched on the back–(I still haven’t found any better way!)
” Even today, when the original referent for sugar plum has faded into the historical mists, we still recognize its meaning: the excitement, the pleasure, the childlike wonder of Christmas, all in the shape of a little sugar plum.”
May YOUR week be filled with the childlike wonder of Christmas!
