3 Christmas ornaments

So, here are my prototypes.  Now to makes some more.  Not sure of the gift but I like the sock and the bell, so back to the cutting table.


O Christmas Tree!

So far on my yo-yo Christmas tree.  I have to sew in those hanging threads, stitch down the presents, put the backing on and bind it….not sure if I like it, but almost there….

And….check out my prototype for my selvedge ornaments!

I so procrastinated making these because I couldn’t understand the pattern.  But I like it and now on to the other two ornaments.  Aren’t they cute?  I ordered the pattern but then found it online, in case any of you want to make them. Go to McCalls

On my design wall I have placemats that need a backing and a Santa Clause….And what is everyone else making?

Gone too long!

But I have been busy…working, running and yes, quilting, and stashbuilding!

Here my latest buy and yes there is a reason for this material:

I want to use this material in my 6-word memoir project:

And here is some more fabric:

And here is what my husband brought home! Yes! I asked him to pick me up some reds and blacks, for a christmas project.  He did but then he was drawn to the bird fabric and wants me to do something with it:


And since it will soon be Christmas my husband and I picked up these:

They are so fragile, that the salesgirl broke one before she put them in a bag.  We have the bluejays and the chickadee at the birdfeeder but not the cardinal, but so beautiful.

For safekeeping…and notice the beautiful cabinet, old cookie boxes from my husband’s grandfather’s store, four, one on top of the other (my husband has been working on them….now just need to add books, but for now, keeping the ornaments safe:

Here is the whole cabinet:

And just because Pye was overseeing the picture-taking:

I’ll be back with Santa soon!
