I just got back in town this evening from helping my daughter pack some of her things in preparation to move. She has just finished her Masters Degree in Statistics from Purdue University and will be staying with us for awhile while she is job hunting.
Before I left to go help her pack, I did a bit of Christmas decorating. I finished machine quilting this Christmas Present wall hanging, and just finished sewing the hanging sleeve on before I left. This is the Charming Christmas Present Wall Hanging that I showed and gave cutting instructions for in this post. The link to the instructions is also listed in Tutorials and Patterns on my sidebar.
The angel in the photo above was made by my Mom when she did ceramics. I'm so glad to have these things to remember her by to display at Christmas.
I love this Flurry fabric by Kate Spain.
I quilted an all over paisley design on this wall hanging.
UPDATE: Go over to Jeanne's blog, Luv2Stitch, and look at these three friends that I met years ago in Shipshewana. They have each made their own Christmas Present Wall Hangings. Wow! They are all wonderful!
Christmas Eve is a week from tonight, and there is still an awful lot to do. I'm hoping to get a lot done this coming week.
I'll write a tutorial for how to make a hanging sleeve and sew it onto the back of a wall hanging or quilt soon.
Thanks for visiting.
I hope you are prepared for Christmas and have time to do some stitching.
