Every year right after Halloween I start decorating for Christmas. The tree won't go up for a little while yet but I have most of my other décor out already. More than likely things will change some they usually do. I have so much fun creating little vignettes. This one is my current fav.
Does it look like a Christmas tree lot? That is what I was going for. I think I need more trees.
Here it is in the evening.
The Christmas Tree selling moose is an incense burner but I don't have any cones right now.
I have been working on this hand embroidered quilt for so long I can't remember when I started. It all began with these sweet Sunbonnet Sue Christmas Iron on patterns many, many moons ago. I took my time embroidering these as I tend to get sloppy if I work on the same project for very long. I need to change it up to keep it fun.
Once I had finished the embroidered blocks it was time to delve into the fabric stashes and I just happened to have everything I needed. Stash Buster!
This block above is my favorite. I just love it so much.
That is why I placed it in the middle of the quilt.
Did you notice that dirt ring around the wreath? I had that one in my hoop for so long it got scuzzy.
This incredible 12 Days of Christmas fabric has been hanging around waiting for just the right project.
Swoon. I love this one below. The bonnet, the nightgown, the candle. Love it!
Here is the back. A soft flannel. So cozy.
I think I will add a bit more quilting on the tan sashing and I need to find the perfect binding fabric. Then I can wash it up and hang it on a wall.
