Cute! I'm thinking I may end up doing something Christmassy this weekend on impulse for the same reason. I've got holiday fabrics I've been collecting from way back and haven't used yet....
So jealous of this star and your stash! And what Christmas music were you listening to?
Saw this on your blog this morning and love! I am working on some holiday things as well after saying I would not do it this year...let us hope they are done for this Christmas:-) Thanks for inspiration!!
WOW love it!
Terryt1955 I put on Pandora's Christmas radio. It was all the oldies - Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, etc. and a lot of Michael Buble and Josh Groban. Great fun!!
True Thanks! And this is just for me so there is no pressure. If I were going to make gifts, I would have to start in July!!
I just heard Karen Carpenter singing some oldies and realized how good she was. Back in the day I cringed over them, now I wish she had made more records.
This is beautiful! Such a special Christmas piece
How fun and whimsical.
Wow you are fast! And LOVE that backing and the binding as well...great finish!
True Well, it was sew or do laundry. And really, can't the kids do their own laundry?!
Terryt1955 Such a shame she died so young. It's not Christmas without hearing her sing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas".
Thesewingchick LOL I am now a firm believer they can do EVERYTHING if it means we can quilt;-) Maybe I should try that at work as well!!
True , I always had that belief about my children and taught them early to be independent. It paid off when I started quilting. ;-)
+Thesewingcvhick, this doesn't look like a quick project. You must have sewed all day and all night! Lovely to look at.
What time is breakfast?! I would love sitting at this table with your lovely table runner and your Spode dishes. I enjoyed looking at all the new pictures. It really gets one in the mood!
Quilterinmotion It is actually faster than it looks. I just sewed all day, not all night
Thesewingchick : It's so beautiful and looks like it's very time consuming to make. Don't you just love it when you have one that is easy/fast to put together but everyone thinks it so complicated looking???
So when are you going to write a tutorial for this? I love it.
