I wanted to share with you what I have been working on since my last post..
The day before Christmas I was finishing a lot of last minute Christmas gifts...
piecing this VW Bug top to make into a pillow for my daughters boyfriend
You see this is his car and I tried to match the color of it and the surfboard I made into the colors of the one he owns. Sorry I did not get a chance to take a picture of the actual pillow.
I have also hand stitching the Vintage top for some very dear friends . They found this top in a box
that had been stored for many years that was made for her husband when he was a very little boy and they asked me if I could make it into a quilt for them.
The fabric is a sort of heavy linen fabric and could not be machine quilted
so I hand stitched around all of the characters and the 2 red fabric lines on each side.
We found this perfect 30's fabric for the backing & binding. I also made a quilt sleeve for them so that they could hang it. They loved it and now it will be preserved for many more years :-D
Then I also made 3 Gingerbread Men & Cocoa Mug placemats
1 Christmas placemat with a Gray mug and...
2 Christmas placemats with Green mugs ( One of the Green mug placemats was for my Grandson )
I want to Thank Nicole of SISTER'S CHOICE QUILTS
for the idea to make these
They were SO fun to make.
WISHING EVERYONE A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR !!
