I live in a little house in the woods on a lake. At Christmas, it is decorated with more stuff than a sensible person would tolerate, but who said I was sensible? Yes, that’s Santa flying through mistletoe in my skylight.
At our fall Guild retreat, I opened my bag of Christmas scraps. There were wedges from tree skirts, unused stars from a runner and even a small paper pieced tree. Sew Kind of Wonderful has a great free pattern, SKW mod ornament, so I picked out the Laurel Burch cats and got to work. The ornament needed a frame. I found a decent piece of gold, a friend donated some green quilt trimmings and I broke down and purchased the bright red. Not enough scraps were gone, so I put more to work as trees, stars, presents and general Christmas chaos.
This week I finally quilted it on Tin Lizzie, and put it up on my fireplace. Just as well the season is almost over: the double sided bra tape didn’t hold. I’ll do better next year.
The first project in my PHD pile is completed. Have fun with those last couple days of Christmas!
