I've done hardly any crafting this year for Christmas, I haven't even made a single gift yet. I'm only planning on one so I'm not panicking but it's still weird lol.
I've been looking at these on Pinterest all year and finally made one.
I love how it looks. So different from a usual wreath. I almost bought a bigger frame and now that it's on the door, I'm glad I went with this smaller one(it's an 8x10)
I did make myself a new table runner with the leftover from my Ribbon Star quilt.
I had a wee bit of an accident on Monday; I sliced the tip of my right index finger open. Of course I am right handed so this has made some things a little interesting. I'm hoping it heals soon since I can't do any hand sewing right now.
I love when local quilt stores do a class and we get quilt after quilt of the quilts. It's always interesting how everyone puts a quilt together differently.
Barb's version of this fabulous star quilt.
|quilted with Dandelion|
I love the colours Barb went with.
And the feathers, lovely!
|quilted with a meander|
I love the fallish colours Dorothy used.
Dorothy didn't like how the middle of her quilt lined up so she appliqued the circle onto the middle. Give the quilt a different look.
Claudia made these two lovelies.
|quilted with Flirtatious|
And her red version
|quilted with Tickle Too|
I absolutely adore this version.
Can't wait to see more of these. Thanks ladies!
This might be the first year that I don't make any homemade gifts this year. Saying that, I do plan in January to make Boys 1 and 4 new quilts for their beds. But for Christmas? No homemade this year.
I did want to make a new Christmas quilt this year. I was inspired by a video I saw on the Missouri Star Quilt Company for a ribbon star quilt.
I will admit that it took awhile for me to figure out the blocks. The video showed making the blocks backwards and I could not figure it out lol.
I love this Solstice line!
I'm also working on getting our Christmas cards finished.
I cut our mailing list way down this year; stamps are just too expensive. I have 10 more cards to make and than get these in the mail. And maybe then I can get my Christmas quilt quilted!
I started this runner(it's actually a pillow pattern) back in October. I knew I wasn't going to have it finished for this years Thanksgiving but I gave it a go anyway.
I had the pieces cut out and sitting on my table so long that I lost the first T. I found it on the weekend in the ironing basket lol.
So may fun shapes to applique. The shapes were fun, not the appliquing lol.
I kept the quilting simple and did a meander over the whole runner.
And the braids, I love the braids.
