It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I've got the borders to put on and I think I'll make this into a cushion cover instead.  The points are somehow not quite meeting up on this :(  Entirely my fault for not cutting them right. 
Love letters.  Designer: Blackbird Designs.  Fabric: 32ct Vintage Country Mocha Belfast 2/2.  Floss: DMC
Started this cross stitch piece some months back.  Finished just in time for Christmas. Beneath are the red (RJR Supreme) and Kona Snow that will become my bear paw quilt ... soon.  I lean towards red and white come Christmas, no wonder with all those lovely quilts I see during my blog travels during this time.

The start of a small cross stitch freebie piece by The Sampler Girl.

Cheri Payne's Seasons Greetings to date.  I had to go slow when piecing the strips and had to get it on the design wall as it can get confusing when the setting squares and triangles are added.  I've got to piece the rows and add them borders and then there's of course the applique!
The orange peel applique is coming along just fine.

    Orange peel looks delicious.

  2. That applique looks just fine. You will be doing it with your eyes closed soon!

    Barbara, I do like your little X-stitch pieces and the way you incorporate them into your patchwork, the cushion should look great! And your little 4-patch scrappy, very pretty. Good for you for perservering with your Orange Peel blocks! I'm sure they'll all look good once sewn together!...Merilyn
