When your birthday falls in December, it is easy to give presents that have a Christmas theme and this is what I made for a very special friend. I found out she received it in time for her birthday which made me so happy after working diligently on it in December and now I can share the photos with you...
This little tabletop quilt is in colors Diane loves. I hand quilted the words Merry Christmas and Vrolijk Kerstfeest (Dutch) in the border but it does not show in the photos unfortunately. It connects us being in the two countries.
To see the quilting well, you have to look at the back of a quilt and I also always include a hand written label done in calligraphy. I hope the love I tried to stitch into this quilt will show you how much I appreciate our friendship Diane!
On another note, I have lately considered stopping this blog and combining it with my Celebrate the Seasons home and garden blog. It seems the comments are less and less and I thought I should perhaps move on. I want to personally thank Heather, Suzann, Teresa, Diane, Angela, Donna and Roberta for their comments about this blog. It came at a moment that made me realize I should keep the two blogs separate and continue with NeedleNecessitites. And thanks to my mother who has always been inspiring and encouraging to me in anything I try to do! You are a star in my life! Thank you all for your kind words!
