I got busy this week and decorated for Christmas. Always such fun to hang up my very special Christmas wall hangings.My VBF Brooke made this wall hanging for me in 2001. It by far is one of my very favorites.This one I made. I must admit I am very negligent in putting labels on my quilts. It must be at least 10 or more years old. It is also one one of my very first machine appliquéd pieces.
In a bit of a rush I realized I needed a Christmas runner for a gift. I have made this pattern before and frankly it is somewhat of a piecing jumble. I did manage to figure out where and what fabric to use to go where and finished the quilting yesterday with just the binding to sew on and do the handwork. You know that Covid has had you home bound for way too long when you decide to make yeast bread from scratch, and you have never done it before.It is also never too late to teach an old dog a new trick. The bread came out perfect, tasted wonderful and the process was much easier than one would believe it could be.
