Hi everyone!
UPDATE 11/27/12:  Joining what looks to be a wonderful Christmas Show at the Blog:  Quilting Tutorials… go check it out!  {Door Prizes… too!}
I got quite a few fabric Christmas projects done over this past, wonderful, long, weekend!  Sooooo nice to be home.

I only had four finished when I took the picture, but I have actually made six as I stuck it out! Yahoo!  And they are now listed in the etsy shop.

Making these placemats seemed to take a long, long time, but I just had to ‘go with’ what I thought was a grand idea!  I started it, so I needed to finish  {this year!}  I believe I spent about two hours on each of these. I think I’ve “over” the round placemat thingy in my head for awhile now! {Til Spring ~ maybe?!}

I cut the shapes with my sizzix cutter, using a poinsettia die.  I couldn’t believe that I didn’t have enough white buttons on had, but then again, I needed at least five for each so I had to go out to buy white buttons.  These are fused to Steam-A-Seam Lite, first, then stitched with just a simple, raw edge applique, via free motion quilting.

And of course, more swirls.  I’m getting a little tired of them, too…  but it’s all good.  Especially since  my machine needs a tune-up, so I must part with it for awhile. {so glad I have my old girl ready to come to life ~ just like Frosty!} lol.  🙂

Have a great week!
Soli Deo Gloria!
