Merry Christmas to all the Design Wall Monday bloggers. Here is a picture of me with Santa, taken in Frankenmuth, MI on another year. This year we didn't visit Frankenmuth due to the recommended quarantining. I hope Santa still leaves me some presents - even though I didn't talk to him in person this year. I have been very very good....most of the time.
Speaking of presents - I have a give-away for one of you. The Buds in a Basket Quilt that I finished recently (See details here) is from this quilt book:
And as you can see, I have two copies of the book. The quilts are from Japanese quiltmakers from the magazine "Quilts Japan", and all are beautiful quilts. If you have linked up to this blog in the last three months (before today), you are eligible to win the extra copy. If you win, I will contact you for your address. If you already have this book, or you don't want it, I will draw another name. But I want to thank all of you who contribute to Design Wall Mondays. You make me happy.
One of my UFOs has been finished in 2020 and is now on top of the Christmas tree! Woohoo!!! Remember this needlepoint angel I was working on earlier this year? (Talked about her Here) Back in January when I first made a record of projects started, I found this angel that was partially finished, and now she is finished! She enjoys being on top of the Christmas tree, in all her glory.
There wasn't a pattern, but I just winged it - chose a backing fabric from the stash and lined it with white sheeting. I used the backing fabric to make a finishing binding around the bottom. Here are pictures of the front and back before she went up on the tree.
What are you finishing up for Christmas? I am baking with one of my daughters in love this Wednesday, and that will be fun. She likes to make candy, and I do too, so we will make candy and Christmas cookies. Merry Christmas to you all, and I will talk to you again next Monday with a report to tell you if Santa brought me anything!
