I FINISHED #7! I am so excited to think I can actually make this crazy challenge goal. It will be so odd not to have this huge pile of UFOs to start the new year with. So here it is…(not many are blogging so I know you need pictures…) I do like the next two quilts you will see.
I just did random kind of straight line( improvisational at a very fast speed) quilting. It is made from packet of hand-dyed fabrics from simply robin and a few of my own. I can even say this is one I like.
Please indulge me on seeing a present my kids bought for me for Christmas. They couldn’t wait to give it to me and wanted me to hang it up now. Did I tell you I am the world’s worst cheater on gifts? If my gift is in the house, I will find it and PEEK. I am the worst kid at Christmas. I can act surprised too if I have seen it before I open it. My husband does not bring my gifts into the house until Christmas Eve. I have been known to unwrap it. Really bad and I can’t believe I have told you this. So this is my present from the kids- a vintage Christmas wreath-
You really needed to see the wreath today. I even took my quilt down above my breakfast nook to hang it up. It needed a place of honor. Look at all these ornaments and I know you will remember them from your Christmas’ of long ago-ok when you were a kid.
The sparkly pear.
The satin wrapped bulbs.
