Yey! I have finished my first Christmas project. I haven't completed ones that are half done but I shall be getting back to them soon. This year I have been determined to finish everything I start, thus older projects awaiting completion. So, here is my Christmas table mat made from my stash except for the backing and binding.
I have made great progress with the crib quilt. There are a few more leaves, some acorns and a couple more critters to go on it yet.
I have had to take a break from this hand appliqueing for a couple of days. My forefinger on my right hand is rather arthritic and I have callouses on both forefingers and my right thumb! I just happened to be in my fav quilt shop yesterday and found these (apparently popular) applique needles which are specially polished and plated to make piercing the fabric a lot smoother and therefore easier.I shall let you know how I go with them. My much used needle threader broke so I also bought a new one from the same shop.
Thanks for visiting me again.
