The workshop is open and things are very busy here...
I have finished all three sets of coasters for the winners of my giveaway. You can click on the photos to enlarge them. I hope I interpreted their color choices well for them. First there is DonnaTN who asked for country reds and greens. I thought using four fabrics on the front gave a real country patchwork feeling.
Her backing fabric is a country barn red with little trees.
Margaret asked for traditional deep red and hunter green. Now I took the liberty to use a fabric with a good deal of cream in it also as I thought this combination of fabrics gave a true traditional Christmas feeling.
I choose two backing fabrics simply because I liked them both. Two coasters have snowflakes and two spots.
And last for Marie, I used a red print with berries on it combined with a green with branches. Just pure Christmas I think.
Her backs have a combination of both colors with a festive look. I hope they will all three enjoy their coasters. They are on the way ladies as I just received the last address this evening.
While sewing these coasters, I am also stitching my Santa banner. It is coming along nicely. I changed the colors just ever so slightly to match my new couches.
So many of you asked me to give more details about this book in order to look into ordering it. I really can recommend it with a warning. It is so adorable that you may want to stitch each and every design in it! *grins*
The book is from Germany and by Rico Design Book #108. It is called 'Winter Fairytale' by Annette Jungmann. They do have a website listed on the cover of the book but I checked and cannot find the book there. It is www.rico-design.de. The linen for the banners is also from this company.
I am including more photos of items contained within the book. You can also contact the shop where I purchased my book here. This shop is owned by a very friendly couple who are willing to help and do mail order for countries all over the world. Just send her an email with a request for this title and/or the linen for the banners.
