Whether you live in an apartment, condo, or house, the place we call “home” is often an alias for “family”. Our home is where we gather with our family at the end of the day. Our home is where we keep the things that are most important to us. And our home is where our life long values are instilled. When we think of going “home”, especially when we talk about “going home for the holidays”, it really isn’t a building we are talking about, but rather a sense of belonging, love and happiness that can be found in a loving family.
This week we have been talking about the importance of the family in our lives. When reading Christmas in the Big Woods, it is apparent that Laura’s Christmas was filled with happiness, excitement and family. As parents we all have tales of how we spent our Christmases. Some stories may even be sad, but I’m willing to bet most of your stories were about things done with family. We created a Log Cabin Applique Block that resembles a house Laura might have lived in. It was designed to fit a 6″ x 6″ block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. The block can be found with our FREE Appliques, or the 2 page pattern can be found here:
We are hoping that everyone will be “home for the holidays… if only in their dreams” 🙂
