Christmas is on the way.......



My first Christmas decorations for this year are here!!!


Isn't this the cutest fat little robin made out of a handprint …..



it may have taken a little while to fly here... but no good posting it could have got broken.... personal delivery was wonderful



… and arrived with a personally picked out angel …..




Since it reminded me of Christmas I started quilting my Christmas quilt..... 



The pictures are so fun that I decided to just outline them and ditch the sides, then some wriggly lines in the grey …. only a few swirls in one area which had a big empty space....



…. the quilting is seen better from the back....  



… and some hand stitching has meant another block for United Stitches has been done... still heaps more....




I am trying to do a bit of my crochet blanket each day.... there are not a lot of rows more to do but it's too warm to have it on my lap for very long.....


Sounds like fires are getting under control, they have been awful.  Some rain has happened (not here but other places that need it badly).  Smoke and dust is still bad.  Thinking of everyone affected.

Righto, Gotto Go... I'm going to get that binding ready for the Christmas quilt so I can sew it down in the evening.

What precious ornament you received. No drawing is better than a baby's hand print. So darling!
I hope you will take pictures of the Christmas quilt once it is all bind because I don't recall seeing this one before. (Short memory, yes, I know. lol.)
Happy to hear they got a little bit of rain. Will pray for a whole lot more.
;^)

Your ornaments are delightful and very special.
I agree that Viv's quilt does not need a lot of quilting. It has a lot going on already. That will be lovely when finished.
Yes, it is good to see the fires lessening in strength. Hope it stays that way. They have been so frightening.

Sweet Christmas robin, what a special gift. Cannot believe that the fires are still burning, such a terrible time for so many people.

Two precious ornaments to be treasured forever. Your quilting is amazing. Do you use a DSM to do your quilting?

Louise said...

Aw, that little handprint! So, so sweet. A perfect gift! Your decision to just outline quilt the Christmas motifs worked out really well. That one will be very soft and snuggly :)
