Oh! No! you say, not Christmas decorations! Oh yes! I say!
Our local garden centre put their Christmas decs out the last week of September and I happened to be down there as they were opening the display. I spotted this little tree and fell in love. It is glass with glass baubles. I went to the garden centre this week and I didn't see any so I'm glad I bought it when I did.
A couple of weeks ago I said I was putting the sewing machine away because of the big clean up for DD's wedding. Well! I did put it away...................for a couple of days! And look what I got up to.
I saw this little wallhanging in the flesh at the Festival of Quilts in August and loved it.
So when I saw it on the front of this magazine I knew I had to make it.
This is my part completed effort, I still think it is cute!
I buy a lot of the American quilting magazines as I am afraid I think they are so much nicer than our UK based two. I have a local village newsagents that sell a lot of craft mags including many American ones, it is a shame they don't stock Oz ones.
Anyway this one had this in it - I thought this would look so nice in Kate Spain's 12 Days of Christmas for Moda.
Here's my example!
Just waiting for quilting now, pobably with the walking foot.
