A bit of Fall, A bit of Christmas

Well I'm going to cover the transition from fall to Christmas here.

I know you all have seen this quilt 10,000 times - but it finally is done, done, done. Everything done! I finished right before Thanksgiving so had to hang it up for a week before I put my xmas quilt up on the wall! Just in case you haven't heard me talk about this one - it is hand quilted and hand appliqued - so it took me awhile to finish since I've been so busy.


Then to kick off Christmas, I just had to post the cutest little reindeer my youngest daughter made in Sunday School. It was the advent fair Sunday so they had all kinds of crafts for the "younger" students. But my 8th grader just had to make some crafts! She can still be young at heart sometimes! Isn't he cute!

Cute quilt, Dawn, I really like it. Thanks for your comments on my letters. The a's and e's etc get easier but things with angles I struggle with more like w's. It's alot of fun, though. Can't wait for you to try.
