A family tradition

Hey welcome to PamKittyMorning day of the Cross Country Christmas blog hop. My regular peeps already know me, so for you new peeps, my name is Pam and I like coffee. A lot. I design a few patterns for Late Bloomer Quilts which is my friend Elizabeth's pattern company but mostly I sit around, drink coffee and sew!

Today we're talking about Family Traditions. I think our most long lasting tradition is the Christmas Eve ride to look at the lights. It's my favorite part of Christmas, we all pile into the car after dinner and drive around, we have our favorite spots, like this house on a hill in Pleasanton. Its HUGE and they have a big window you can see in from the car, and they have music playing. Its in a swanky neighborhood and on Christmas Eve the streets are lined with paper bag luminaries and people turn their car lights off and drive around looking at the lights. They're amazing. From the top of the hill you can look out and see all the way to delta on one side and across the Livermore Valley from the other. Beautiful.


Of course I always try to get good photos, never have good of luck. Our absolute favorite is the 'old guy' downtown. He's already on his lighting now, we start driving by his place on Halloween to check his progress.
He goes all out, and the past few years he's even had a Santa out there passing out candy canes. It's a lot of fun and I'm already looking forward to going out this year. I usually drive around previewing the neighborhoods because I really love the lights.

But on to my project. For my regular peeps, you know I love coffee. LOVE COFFEE. Well this little table mat is about coffee and I call it Come Around for Coffee. It doesn't take much time, and I only did some in the ditch quilting.. making it a pretty quick finish. I used some of my precious LakeHouse Doll Dresses in the geese units and my other precious Lecien 30's for the rest of the quilt. Thanks to Lecien for providing a fat quarter bundle of their Spaicy Scrap fabric for the Grand Prize giveaway basket!!


The Come Around For Coffee pattern can be found here as a pdf, print it and either get sewing or maybe put it off for a while. I think this will make a great spring time gift for all you people who have everything done!! (and for those of us who won't get it done before Christmas!)

Leave me a comment today an not only will you be entered into the Grand Prize drawing, I'll also draw a name, the winner will receive a little kit for this quilt, plus Elizabeth's Sweet Pea Trellis pattern and some fat quarters of the soon to be released Sweet Pea fabric from RJR. Also, Alex gave me a 6 month gift membership to The Quilt Show to share, I have some pretty cool friends huh?

There's still half the hop left, so see you tomorrow! xo

I am a tea drinker but do drink mine in a mug, so this works for me, too. (Hubby drinks coffee.) It is very cute and I'll just have to believe you that it's easy (as it sure doesn't LOOK easy!!!) I can see it done in different colors for different seasons....Christmas colors...spring colors...fall colors. I will make one...but probably not in time for THIS Christmas. Thanks for the pattern.

I love the project! Very nice....we too have done the drive around a look at the lights. When my kids were small there was/is a street where about 10 houses got into the act. It almost seemed like a competition. They lit up the sky with the lights on their houses. One house has a very large train set that went around and around in their front yard. The train was filled with adorable dolls, like Cabbage Patch kids and others of that size. Another house had a Santa in the garage that the kids could go up and visit. There was music and a long line of cars as everyone inched by each house to take it all in. It's a fun treat for the kids and very magical. Thanks for sharing your project and stories. This is a very fun hop! Monica, ment1234@aol.com

Good Morning Pam,
I'm sitting here with my COFFEE, too!
I remember the lights around Pleasanton - I lived there in the 90's and loved it - my favorite thing when we lived there - after the presents were open, and breakfast of course, we would drive to the top of Mt. Diablo and look for wildlife - I remember one year the weather in the valley was completely gray and cloudy, but it was sunny on the Mt!

Love the project and the fabrics that you used (hard for me not to love something in reds and whites!). When I was growing up (before the age of big light displays), there was this one house in my home town that went all out with lights, music, different vignettes with characters that moved, etc. So special. We loved it when our parents would take us -- it was always an evening of togetherness because there was always a long line of cars inching by with windows down taking time to soak it all in! (As I recall, police were dispatched each year to assist with traffic flow.) What a sweet memory of Christmas for me!

Love the tabletopper pattern, We don't get much spring or summer in Minnesota, LOL so this will help to assimulate the season for us. It is going to make a great gift and I think I will make one for myself as well./ Thank You

When I saw the curved coffee cup handles, I thought, "Oh no... I won't be able to make this cute pattern." Then I read the directions and realized that they were rick rack, I was so happy!

I saved the pattern immediately and will definitely make some for gifts!

Thank you for sharing this cute and easier-than-I-thought pattern!

Love the coffee cups and at first I looked at the handles and said, OMG, how will I do that? How clever of you to use rickrack!!
Off to VA Beach for a week's worth of sewing. Hope the house we rented is still standing - it's on the beach.

Great name for the pattern. I know some coffee-aholics that would love a little something for their table.

I'm glad you said "for those of us who won't get it done before Christmas!" That would be me but I'd still love to receive a kit or fabrics. :)

I love it! Only, I would have to call it Come Around for Tea, is that okay?

That is really adorable. :) My MIL loves coffee and this will make a sweet little gift for her, maybe for Mother's Day with a nice, new mug to go with it.

When I was small, my Dad always took me and my sisters for a drive around the neighborhood on Christmas Eve. My Mother stayed home to put "Santa" under the tree. We didn't put 2&2 together until we got older, of course. One year we got back too early and she had the door locked. Told us we couldn't come in yet because Santa was still there. We nearly broke the door down trying to see Santa before he got away!

Love your pattern. Thanks for sharing. And what wonderful prizes!!

Thank you for sharing this project. It looks really sweet in your choice of strawberry colours, but it might also be just the right thing for the pile of brown and teal coffee themed stack of fabrics I have sitting prettily in my stash too! Hm, I know just the person to make it for too :-)

Love your tradition of looking at the lights; I remember doing that as a child too. We still do it!!! There is a guy in Cincinnati, Ohio who does the lights like your one person. It reminds me of Clark Griswold in "Christmas Vacation". Love that movie and "A Christmas Story", always watch it on Christmas Eve.

It's a pretty project! I will put it on "the list" of to do projects. For some reason it keeps growing...LOL. We always drive around and look at the Christmas lights! We have a guy in our town too that really decks his house out! Nobody else on his street puts lights up, because his lights are sooo bright they light up the whole block!

I do NOT do coffee, however, I could join you and this great little pattern for some chi tea! Our daughter was born on Christmas Eve. DH drove 60 + miles in a blizzard in WY to get me to the hospital. That year we missed the lights around town tour....
