These are a few Christmas gifts that I made for a friend back east. I finally got them done and sent out to her in January. Because of all the turmoil I didn't have a chance to get them done for Christmas. But as the saying goes.....Better late than never!
I found a tutorial on the Internet for the round one and then thought it would be nice if I were to round off the ends. I think the red and white one looks like a peppermint candy. I liked it when I first did it and then I did the other one and liked it so much better. I did make two more of them but I will post them later.
I paper pieced these trees. Normally I don't buy Christmas fabric but these fabrics I could not resist to make these trees out of. I tired to quilt it so it looked like there was snow there.
This is an awful photo but the only one that I have. It was a really pale photo and I tried to enhance it. It didn't look too bad when I was done but maybe it was the lighting at the time. Now that I look at it I didn't do a very good job on the enhancing part. Sorry about that. She has apples in her kitchen so I thought she might like these hot pads.
So there you have it. I have a few more things to post in the future. I have been busy
doing some other things as well and will tell you about that too.
Have a good day and thanks for coming to my blog. Especially since I have not blogged
in forever. It was difficult to do when I was away from home so much.
