A Good Night

I finally quilted the Santa quilt I made a number of months ago and made a second one.  I did not do a good job of pinning them so they hang straight on the design wall.  One is a bit larger than the other as I cut the outside border pieces a bit wider.  And the applique designs are in reverse.  Didn't mean to do that but it turned out okay.  The pattern used is "A Good Night" and is by Cheri.  The applique is wool on cotton.


I also finished the snowman ornament I showed you in this post.  We have house guests for two weeks.  I have prepped one of the snowman ornaments for my friend to stitch and she has a start on it and building her confidence that yes she can do some basic embroidery.  I used a piece of cotton batting inside the snowman but you could just as easily add light stuffing and make him a bit plump.


I hope that if you celebrate Thanksgiving, it is a good one.

Wonderful pieces and I do like the larger one, think it is because it has more red in it.

Such fun, festive stuff coming from your needle lately! Love the Santa hangings (yikes--that sounds like Santa got lynched) and that is a very cute snowman.
Hope you enjoy your holiday this week!
