The Twelve Days of Christmas - Anticipating the Gifts of the Magi and
Best Wishes for the New Year!
Third Day - The Gift of Myrrh
Myrrh, which is an embalming oil,
is a traditional gift of the Magi
(Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh).
I think it would be considered strange
presented as a gift today!
However, remembering our ancestors and those who have gone before us is another way of “preserving” them.
Celebrated in many countries around the world, Day of the Dead is a special day for remembrance and honoring of
Mexicans and many other cultures, are drawn to the concept and imagery of Mexico's Day of the Dead, so the holiday seems to continually gain in popularity as more people learn about it.
We've put together a
special fabric selection for you today. I've pulled two popular
Alexander Henry fabrics and added a couple of coordinates. I'm including my two pillow case patterns, one for a full-size pillow
case and the other for my popular Tremendously Tidy Travel Pillow
These large prints can
be a challenge for some quilters. They love the fabric but can't
think of how to use them.

patterns designed especially for large print fabric. Let the
fabric do the work!
