I finished the Crazy Eight throw. I would definitely buy another pre-assembled kit like this one.
A simple large meander for the quilting using a tan/brown variegated thread. Love the bias striped fabric for the binding. The small throw is gracing my loveseat in the living room.
This vintage 50's mouse belonged to my MIL and is meant to hug a candle, but I put him on my kitchen shelf. He's trying to shield himself with the glass ball from those piercing cat's eyes!
Erica's string tree from elementary school on the fridge. The beaded poinsettia magnetized clip I found years ago at a discount store.
Rustic decorations on the lawyer's bookcase. The tin ceiling tile Santa was a junk shop find.
I couldn't resist this happy St. Nick in his sleigh. It makes me smile to see the plump penguins and the chubby polar bear. This was a garden shop find from a couple of years ago.
Grant bought orchids for the girls and me last year. This one rebloomed--the first time that has ever happened to me!
No idea what sort it is, but I love the waxy yellowy-green flowers.
I put together this wreath in about 3 minutes with clip-on poinsettias, a pre-made bow, and some fancy berry sprays. (Our front door badly needs paint!)
More poinsettias. This was an American Patchwork & Quilting design from more than 10 years ago.
It was my first complex applique project and I was pleased with the way it turned out. I still have most of the $26 worth of rayon specialty thread spools the pattern called for! I believe I finished it in 2001 and it hangs in my dining room every Christmas. I still have scraps of the batiks I used for the flowers and leaves!
