Happy Sweet Friday!!
Hope that you have had a lovely week, and are enjoying this Christmas and holiday season! I have been working away on some projects this week and hoping to get them all done before Christmas. I do love creating handmade pretties this time of year!
One little project that I am almost finished with are these Christmas hexies. I used some of my favorite red and green 30's reproduction fabrics, and just love the vintage feel the prints gave them!
They will be made into coasters, and I have been wanting to make some for awhile, so what better time than now. I just need to sew some batting and felt to the bottom, and they will be ready to bring some prettiness to Christmas.
The sun came out a little bit today to take some photos of my Christmas quilt. I used a charm pack of the sweet Cherry Christmas by Aneela Hoey and bordered it with the two grey fabrics from the line. I do love that pretty grey!! ;)
For the quilting, I tied it with white yarn, but when I washed and dried it, the yarn frizzed like crazy. So, I had to remove the yarn, and tie it with white embroidery floss. Have you every tied a quilt? What yarn or thread do you like using?
Another sweet Christmas quilt ready to bring some warmth to those cold nights!
Last week I was a lucky winner of these adorable miniature pink and aqua Shiny Brite ornaments from the most lovely Jean of Ruby and Arthur!!
Aren't they so beautiful and cute!! I can't wait to add them to my small tinsel tree! Thank you so much Jean!
Wishing you all a blessed and joyful weekend!!
