Time to catch up for the month of Dec. It's always harder when everything I'm making is a gift and I can't show for fear of giving it away. I almost finished the Wish Quilt, it didn't get quilted in time and I wasn't about to stress about it. There's always next year!
I did finish this little Cheri Payne pattern. I had so much fun making the trees, I made a smaller 12" hanging to fit the frame stands, that one was given as a gift and then I had to make one for myself as well as the bigger version.
Close up of the applique.
I stitched a few ornaments for friends, gave these with a bag of cookies.
Went to the Christmas Vintage Market, Totally forgot what I came home with, Should have bought the Noel sign...now regretting I didn't.
Baked a lot of cookies, ginger snaps are my favourite.
Sweet little gift from my friend Linda.
Love my little wool table mat from my friend Gillian.
Hope your Christmas was filled with love, laughter, family and friends.
This isn't a secret project but one that I started a few years ago. I've brought out the Wish quilt AGAIN!. Maybe I can finally get it finished. This stitched block isn't officially part of the Wish quilt but it will be part of my version. The Wish Quilt is a free pattern from Red Brolly.
I made this into a 6" star block, I changed the stitchery in this block.
This little wallhanging is the first of two secret projects. I've given this to my Secret Sister, I should make a second one for me. Soon I can reveal the other project.
I love this time of year when the leaves change to fall colours and the pumpkins come out. Here is a little fall decorating around my house. The Boo blocks I bought at Folktales in Lynden, Wash. This shop is a must see if you are in the area.
The pumpkin and crow quilt is from Need'l Love book called Autumn Threads. It's on the front cover.
I made the witch a few years ago, it's from a pattern by Threads That Bind. A friend gave me the framed picture of the witches boots, she did the drawing. I love them both together.
The borders are added, quilted and ready for gift giving. It's a queen size quilt and will be a gift for my daughter, haven't decided if it will be Christmas gift or birthday. The free pattern is from Moda and they've included 3 sizes using pre-cuts. This was a very quick quilt to make and I'm happy with how it turned out.
The second little quilt in the Simple Whatnots club, I've sewed the flying geese on the sides, just not in this picture.
A little fall decorating, my favourite time of year. This is hanging just inside the front door.
