To-Do #2

I finished the Christmas Present dresser runner and on Sunday decorated a table-size metal Christmas tree with the runner underneath and a Christmas Baubles mini quilt behind it. It definitely looks festive but also busy (which is usually not my style, but I make an exception for Christmas because of all the fond memories associated with the various ornaments).

To-Do #3

And for my squirrel project (for anyone not familiar with squirrel in the context of quilting, it is a project that one had not planned on making but all of a sudden jumped to the top of the to-do list), over the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, I finished two Little Llama mini quilts (pattern by Elizabeth Hartman), each measuring 15.5″ x 20″ that I took to my office yesterday. The ugly tan paint on the wall isn’t the best backdrop for photographing them, but they still make me smile every time I look at them. I named them after my parents. The first one with the turquoise Christmas Carols background is Cleo, and the second with the red background is Jack.

  1. You had a great week of finishes, Mary! The Christmas Present runner is perfect for that spot, and I think your display on it is so fun. I really like the metal tree! Those llamas are adorable – what a great way to decorate your office – I bet everyone who comes in will smile.

    Hi Mary! I love, love, LOVE Cleo and Jack. Their faces are just so precious – they would make me smile every time I looked at them too. Maybe I need to make a set representing my parents. That would be a fun project, just thinking about the perfect fabrics to use. How fun! And your present runner is just perfect, too. I’ve never seen a metal tree like that but it is certainly festive! Good luck with this week’s projects. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. What goodies! I love the Christmas Baubles mini quilt peeking through that wonderful metal tree, and the runner turned out beautiful. But those llamas! Oh my goodness I love them! I’d steal those from you if I worked in your office – lol! 😀

    Such fun eye candy. I can’t decide which is my favorite — the Christmas Presents or Cleo and Jack. It’ll be fun to have them at work with you. Much better than beige walls!
