Well, it has been way too long since my last post. I've been dealing with some difficult personal issues and just haven't had the time or energy to think about blogging. More recently I've been wanting to post, but feel a little shy about it....not sure why. So, I thought an entry into Sew Cal Gal's Christmas Quilt Show would be a good way to jump back into blogland. Here is one of my favorite Christmas Decorations.....
I had picked up this Advent Calendar panel at a local shop hop a few years ago. I attached the little pockets, machine quilted and added some gold fringe on the bottom. Then, instead of sticking candy in the pockets, I used my embroidery machine and stitched a Santa which I made into a tiny pillow. You can see him in the top pocket. We just move him from day to day to count down the days.
I also have this tree skirt I made for Mom a couple of years ago. I think the pattern came from Quilter's World but I can't be sure as back then I was subscribing to no less than 4 quilting mags.
I do enjoy these on line quilt shows.....I find talented quilters I might not have otherwise found, and the eye candy! Oh the eye candy!
So be sure to go and see all the other beautiful quilts in the show here.
Until Next Time,
