Time to reveal a completed Christmas item for the month!
I thought I was going to have to make excuses as to why I didn't have a finish.. but last night, due to the amount of rubbish on tv, I managed to finish doing the hand quilting on my 'tis the season top. I decided to machine quilt the borders. I retired to the kitchen, set up the machine and went for it.
I had a ball getting it done and I was so glad to finish it by the 25th as it was a small deadline I had imagined for it, I only managed it by fluke.
so here it is...
My 'tis the season completed hanging...drum roll please..
Now it can join the other christmas items finished so far.
Almost finished another stitchery at craft group today and I stopped off at Spotlight on the way home to spend my birthday voucher from them so I bought some off white homespun to use as a backing for my sweet nostalgia quilt. I will use some scraps from the top as well then it can go for either quilting or basting at the quilters. I still can't decide whether to quilt by hand or not. I know how I want it quilted but I am worried that they won't do it exactly as I want or that it will cost a packet. Decisions, Decisions.
Have a great weekend!
