Santa’s Sweat shop…

About this time of year I usually pick a project that I think some of my family members might like for Christmas  and I mass produce them.  Which means instead of one runner I make four (and if all goes well, I usually try to make one for me…!)  Two years ago I made everyone this little table topper….

You start by making a large log cabin…

P1030722 Add a few snowmen and a Let it Snow sign….oh and don’t forget the little snow buttons!P1030720

I must confess I do have a weakness for snowmen!  P1030721

I always get such pleasure  taking this little topper out of the Christmas Box.  I hope everyone else feels the same way. 

Tomorrow I will show you what ‘Santa’ mass produced last year….I’ll give you a hint…they are a weakness of mine…

Have a sunny Sunday and Happy Quilting!

  4. Love those snowmen too. I have the whimsicals books and should do some too. Do you machine applique?
    I really should figure out how to use my machine, could make more things if I did.

  6. I'm with DianeH! Such a cute little topper, lucky family members. I'm the only one in my family who creates, so I don't get this kind of thing, unless I make it for myself, which is fun, but not the same. Can't wait to see what Santa made last year - let me guess - something with more snowmen? (I have a weakness for them, too!)

  8. I love mine too, Mom! It's sooo cute and festive without being too festive, if you know what I mean! In fact, I like it so much I keep it out as long as there is snow on the ground, which is a long time in Alberta!

  16. I love your snowman table topper & runner. They are so cute!! Was the table topper your own idea or a pattern? I don't think I've ever seen it before.
