Yesterday I mentioned the Cow Pillows I made for the Clown Wife's birthday. Here is a closeup of the binding. The tiny cows amuse me. I think the opportunity to combine these two fabrics was what sold me on the entire project to begin with.
The photo below shows the Round Robin quilt, Autumnal Blessings, I worked on with a couple members of my guild. I absolutely love it. The two ladies who made most of the blocks did such beautiful work. Although, this, too, is not a Christmas project, I did quilt it in Santa's Workshop during this past October.
I know exactly where I'm going to hang it up in the house, but I need someone to help me end up with level brackets for the rod. (Hint! Hint!)
And, last, but not least, an actual Christmas 2011 project I made to join the rest of the family's stockings hanging from the mantel over the fireplace.
My mother-in-law started us off by needlepointing by hand five beautiful stockings for us years ago. I do not needlepoint. So, the stockings we've added over the last nine years have been quilted. Thus, the tradition continues but by using my personal abilities.
None of the three stockings I have made is exactly like one of the others because I only allow myself to use fabrics from my stash. Fortunately, that hasn't exactly limited me, and I really like it that our stockings are all homemade.
