Holiday Projects

Hard to believe Christmas is almost here!  Where did the year go?  Been busy the past 2 weeks with holiday things and sewing projects for the guilds I am in.

Here's the results so far....

Mug rugs for my girlfriends.  We've been having dinner once a month for almost 5 years now.  This ladies are amazing.

Next up ... The Triad Modern Quilt Guild always provides opportunities for homework between meetings.  For December, we could make a homemade ornament for a dirty Santa swap at the monthly meeting.

I used Laura Birch scraps from my Ornament quilt to create a background fabric.  Then I embroidered a redwork manger scene, and finished with stitch in the ditch using gold metallic thread.  I used a layer of temtex inside to provide stability and to hold shape.


And last but not least,  here's the patriotic block I came up with for the quilt of valor project.

Happy sewing, quilting, knitting and crafting to all!!

Merry Christmas.
