This weekend I've been working on a table runner from the Mrs Moen pattern I won. I've been having fun doing some Santa appliques and setting the circular pictures into the background. First I cut out and fused the santa designs. Then added buttonhole stitch and a fancy satin stitch around the edges of the pieces. I'll add the eyes and nose when I quilt.I used 2 strips of fabric to make the backgound cut across the width of the fabric. In the picture above I was deciding where to place the pictures.
It got a little scary when I had to cut a hole in the background - yikes!!
Martin decided to add some extra loft insulation yesterday and while he was up there he brought the Christmas decoration boxes down. He was shocked when I started unpacking and putting things out - Bah Humbug!!! The only things he likes about Christmas are mince pies! He thinks we should put things out on Christmas Eve and take them down Boxing Day!
I put up our tiny tree and stacking ornaments with a silver reindeer candle holder we bought in Copenhagen this year. I wish we could have got two but they were pretty expensive!
