Merry Christmas one and all!

I received a lovely ornament pillow from Lillie today.  Just super perfect for the season!  It will join my row of ornaments given to me by my friends over the years and some that I've stitched below.

 I've completed the binding for my sis' XS piece.  Added plastic rings at the back of the wall hanging for a dowel to pass through.

Still working on the red and white bear paw quilt.  There's sashing and HST borders to be done.  Loving those red and whites!

Lori's CC & C is in the pipeline for next year.  Pulled out all the fabrics required.  This will be pretty slow as the placing of these blocks need careful attention.

Thank you all for coming by and leaving comments.  I do so appreciate it. 

Merry Christmas everyone!

  2. Oh I love your ornaments. They look so pretty displayed in a row. The cross stitch piece for your sister is so cute. Look forward to see your progress on the new quilt.

  3. Cheddar Cheese hmmmm, lovely fabrics!! Love the idea of slow patching for next year, this year seemed to have rushed by soooo quickly!! Enjoy your ornaments!! Thanks for all your lovely blogposts! Have a wonderful Christmas time and a happy, healthy New Year! XXXD

  4. Thank you for introducing me to those lovely little pillows. I see several in my future and even a few for friends.

    The wall hanging for your Sis came out perfect. I know she will be glad to have it finished and hanging in her home.

    That red and white bear paw is really calling to me. Maybe in 2012 but right now 2011 is full up...VBG

  5. Loved Lori's first QAL project but only did her second one. I heard she will do another after the holidays. Your BP blocks are looking stunning as it your sister's banner. She will love it. Fun to see all the ornaments hanging.

    Hugs from Holland ~

  6. What a post full of loveliness!! The bear paw is coming along nicely. Red and white is one of my favorites!
    Super cross stitch too!!

  7. I love all those little cross stitch ornaments that you have collected. As you unpack each one, every Christmas, another memory comes with it. And you are already planning for next year! Maybe you should give yourself some time off. You have worked so hard this year.

  8. Oooh, how beautiful! Your ornaments are beautiful. Nice quilt progress, too!
