Today I thought I’d share a little bit of my friend Claire’s Christmas. Look at what she got from her son Andrew, who is just12 years old. Every year he makes her a birdhouse…
This year’s birdhouse has a quilter’s theme. Isn’t it cute…way too cute to put outside. Last year he made the black birdhouse covered with Christmas lights and snow…how sweet…Claire, I think you have a collection starting here! I can’t wait to see next years birdhouse…(Andrew, we are expecting GREAT things! ;o) ) I would treasure these birdhouses FOREVER!
Andrew also made the driftwood Santa in this picture and they also made the Santa and elves.
Andrew must get his bird house building talent from his dad because look at what Max made for Claire. Last year they had tons of birds that were making a mess on the railing around their sundeck. Notice the little wooden birds on the peak of the house…Max found the pattern from a quilt book…got to love that!
Claire’s sister gave her these gorgeous star plates for Christmas. Max, Claire’s husband, made crab and mango in wonton wrappers for an appetizer. Delicious! The tablecloth is one of Claire’s first quilting endeavors. Patchwork actually, no quilting! The silver was her mom's.
Claire’s house looked very festive, don’t you think? She lives on acreage and has cedar, fir and pine growing in her backyards.
This little wool felt penny rug was one of Claire’s first felt projects…adorable!
And I love this wall hanging…Looks like a Celtic knot/wreath with trees inside…very pretty.
Looking good, Claire! I’m so happy you had a wonderful Christmas! Thanks for sharing!
Have a super Sunday and hopefully a happy quilting day!
