The Swags are done.......

I am so pleased with the Christmas Swag which is now all finished with all the fiddly diddly ribbons and bells .....

The pattern for 'Christmas' is by Nikkie Tervo .... Each star is about 6" so the swag is quite big .. And it is all stitched by hand ....



And I finished off a couple of single decorations too using a stitchery design by Gail Pan



I have one of Toni's quilts here to play ... If you love moose keep an eye on her blog for when the pattern is released - it is just gorgeous.



I have a large light box with a nice big piece of Perspex so I take that off and put it over the quilt and draw out what I am thinking of for the quilting ... I can then take a picture and send it off for Toni to check she likes the plan .... 

any clear firm plastic would do for this

Righto, Gotto Go.... play time with a moose or two....

  4. Congrats on beautiful finish. Explain something to me please, I am confused. This swag is it the Christmas swag on your right hand side to do list or the Christmas Swag on the left hand side bar? Or are they the same?
