The kitchen quilts were hung and the Christmas oranges were bought and readied for consumption.
The Santas were brought out of storage and found their places on shelves, tables, and anywhere I could find!
Many years ago I did more tole painting than quilting, so you'll see lots of wooden Santas made by Woodworker Hubby and me. He cut out and assembled the pieces and I did the painting.
Over the years, I have been gifted with many fabulous Santas by friends and family. This is just a sample of what surrounds us at Christmas.
The ladder quilts were changed up and some Santas added to the top.
The Christmas Dresden quilt was taken out of storage...
Do you see the quilt at the bottom of the bed? I just finished this selvage quilt a couple of weeks ago.
I made this lap quilt just for me to cuddle up in, so I added flannel to the back and machine quilted some stitch in the ditch along the piano key borders. The pdf pattern is by Karen Griska and can be found by clicking HERE.
I love using this quilt because there are so many memories in it from fabric I have used for the many quilts I have made over the years.
DS and his girlfriend are due home today and we'll plan to put up the tree in a day or two. Although we won't be seeing DD, SIL, and our first GS this Christmas, I did have the chance to go West a few weeks ago. The little guy has just turned 6 months old and is already checking out my stitches!
I finished a few projects this month too. I do love to play in my sewing room!
I tidied up the sewing room today but I'm sure I'll find a little time over the holidays to play in there. Thanks so much for coming by. I've had another wonderful year sharing my projects and inspiration with my friends in Blogland and appreciate you all so much! Have a wonderful Christmas!
