Look what's on the design wall! I am building the cutest little Christmas trees. The tutorial to make these miniature quilts was posted by Kevin the Quilter last week and I was instantly smitten. I knew when I read that post that I'd be building a forest before the month was out! I started digging around in the green scrap bin and cutting 1.5" squares.
If you are anything like me, you push yourself like crazy the last couple of weeks before Christmas finishing hand made gifts. It's really a bizarre phenomenon that occurs in my life, but it's as regular as clockwork in December. All of a sudden *BAM* I'm become a crazed little elf obsessed with making things for everyone!
I just wish sometimes that I could be a regular person who orders stuff on line. Life could be so easy... see a picture on a computer, click, pay on credit, have it delivered, done and done without even leaving your chair. But that is just too boring for someone with a creative brain like me.
Here are a couple of trees in the layout stage. Look at that new cone of Aurifil thread that I bought... it looks like a little white Christmas tree!
You can check out Kevin's sweet Christmas Tree pattern here and try not to drool over the photos of his beautiful Christmas decorations! Thanks Kevin for a great gift idea! These little trees are ready for quilting and finishing this week, with plenty of time left to start many more Christmas gifts! HA!
