Yesterday I turned in the final T-shirt quilt to my neighbor and, as gracefully as possible, ended my career piecing T-shirt quilts. Back home, I got a burst of energy and cleaned the house: dusting, mopping, vacuuming, even the bathrooms. It felt good to be away from the sewing machine (gasp!) and getting stuff done.
Today, I thought I would show you some more Christmas items that I’ve made over the years.
Here is the wreath I made for our front door:
Here is a close up of a table runner I cross stitched:
I also cross stitched Christmas motifs onto this bayberry colored Anne cloth. This project was a lot of fun, possibly because it was so different from others I’d done. It required a size 22 tapestry needle and six strands of embroidery floss. Stitching with only one color of floss certainly made it quick to finish.
Here’s the dining room all decorated:
As I look at all the things I’ve made, it occurred to me that I must be happiest when I’m making something, although that most definitely does not include dinner.
