Our mantle this year.
Nothing elaborate just my small trees at each end.
The greenery, trees and ribbon do have lights but it is a daytime pic here.
This is a beautiful cross stitch piece done by my niece.
The linen is shimmery. Fits right in!
Speaking of cross stitch.
Niece came over this past Sunday and we finished this stocking for her DH!
All done on a pretty greenish linen.
See the redish tiny beads!
Well really look at all those TINY stitches!
I would be blind!
I made a pattern from it and sewed it up, all lined and ready to fill!!
Have one more to do as soon as she is finished for grand niece.
It is GORGEOUS!
Now on to this piece.
I have to say this block is a fun one BUT...yeah there is one, a tad bias-ie!
Yes that is a word in my quilt dictionary...;-).
It can go wonky on you in a heart beat.
Maybe was just me who knows( but a very good chance).
I will try again and see if I can corral those bias edges better.
It is all quilted and ready to sew the binding down.
Wash it up see how it looks.
Then decide where it will rest for the holidays...may be traveling!
Oh Goodness, that is my foot there...;-)
Will try to get more Christmas pics up loaded.
Well as soon as I can take any that are any good!
Oh well best get back to the sewing.
More things MUST be finished soon!!!
And I heard Lola say as she rushed to the machine....
Hugs to all and to all a good day ! ;-)
