Exchanges and get~togethers...

December is flying by. Only a few more days and it is Christmas. I wish I had more handwork ideas finished. But then isn't that the age old dilemma of every stitcher/quilter?


I am able to share one of the projects I had been working on now as the ladies participating all have received their ornaments. I made these felt snowmen for an ornament exchange with 11 other ladies. This was a pattern I simply drew out on paper and then added embroidery touches for the eyes, nose, mouth and buttons. A fabric scarf tied to their necks keep these snowmen ready for the cold...


I had a get together last week with my two lacemaking friends. We had a Swedish 'princess cake' and I gave them some little Christmas gifts. Last night was my quilt group's Christmas party and I will share a few photos of that tomorrow. I guess this is why my month is going by so quickly...

Your snowmen are goodlooking! I think your mother will be jealous! The Christmasparty was a great success with our quiltfriends, gifts and delicious things to eat and drink. Thank you so much again for everything.
