Christmas Is Coming
The weather has been very snowy in most parts of the country but for some reason it seems to be all around us but we have only had a smattering so it hasn't stopped me getting out and about.
I am now thinking Christmas and don't have much in the way of Christmas wall hangings so decided to make one of my own with Mery my dog as one of the characters. It would be so HER hanging on to the reigns stopping Santa's reindeer's from doing their work. I made a pocket at the bottom for Santa's letter's. I don't have grandchildren yet, but hopefully one day a little person will be able to pop their letter off to him and their wishes be granted. AGH. Maybe I should pop one in there. Well A girl can dream can't she!
Now do you remember the kit I bought in Paducah this year that I had to revamp as the cutting instructions didn't work. Well I decided to get it back out and although have now made good progress if I had followed the original pattern their is no way their was enough fabric for those outer edge setting triangle. The original quilt was bigger.
I felt totally frustrated with this kit and am glad I now have my own stamp on it. I still have a couple of borders to add but with a bit more snow in my neck of the woods so I that I can't get out it will be done before to long.
