What a spread…and what a spread on my backside!! I think I will have to walk extra fast today to wear this off…at the mall!! It’s BOXING DAY…isn’t it? I’m sure they have Boxing Day down in the States? They must…right?! It’s either shopping today or laundry…and that is NOT going to happen!!
Before I hustle out the door…
Let me show you TWO UFOs…correction…two completely FINISHED UFOs!! YAHOOOOOO!!
Rather than blanket stitch a wool backing onto these projects, I treated both of these wool wall hangings like a quilt…I used batting and a cotton backing and matching binding. Why you ask:o)? Well, for one thing it’s cheaper and just as easy…and I do like the pop of colour around the edge!
I found this stripe cotton print in my stash…it matched the bird perfectly so I went with it…and I’m not sorry!!
Just the right pop of colour!
I think this is going to be one of my favourites for Winter decorating!!
Speaking of Winter Decorating…look at what Clubhouse Quilter Doris made for each couple at our Christmas dinner!! You heard me!! DORIS MADE these sweet Snow Angels!! Look at the face…perfect!
And they are covered with a fine crystal like snowflake!! I can’t wait to hang this one on my tree back home! Thank you sew much, Doris!! It’s a keepsake treasure for sure!!
So looks like it’s off to the Mall for me…I have got to wear off this FULL feeling…and I might as well be in search of Boxing Day Sales…there has GOT to be some! RIGHT? I’ll keep you posted!
Hope your Christmas was as bright and as merry as mine!! All the best!!
