Christmas Decorating

I'm still getting out the Christmas decorations. This is an afghan that my Mom made for us many years ago. She passed away in 1996, and we enjoy using it every year. This is my Dear Jane Christmas swap quilt. I made the center feathered star to use in a round robin but changed my mind and didn't use it. So it made the center of the quilt surrounded by my swap blocks.Since my knee replacement, I was able to get up in the attic....a place I hadn't been able to get to in years. I found this breadboard in a box. I had forgotten I had it and don't know how old it is. I haven't done any cross stitch in several years.

Here is a close up of the house.


This is a crocheted ripple afghan that I made several years ago.

I hope that you are all finding some time to do some Christmas sewing, knitting or crocheting and enjoying the holidays.
