on-the-go-go Xmas

there's no chance i will have this absolutely finished soon. so i must just show you now. it's the next Le Petit project. i will hand quilt with Perle cotton and bind with wavy edges. except i don't even have a wavy ruler. it's a Moda Bake Shop recipe. but smaller like Sherri is making. the prairie points are these selvedges. and although the original layout is perfect. i altered it to resemble a regular tree.late again delivering the bags. but done is done.and speaking of done. i managed to make 10 of these. that would be finished and wrapped. thank you very much.i'm laughing right now. because my plan to keep-it-simple was accomplished. although even simple things can get get ugly if done late. meaning most of this could have leisurely been done in September. hehe. i also managed to put together 10 of these.i live in an old building with a beautiful lobby. somewhere in draft i have a post on this. any-who!! our lobby got a new Xmas tree this year so i made a simple tree skirt. i've never made one before. so it was definitely a quick-and-dirty-version but all that was needed.we might get snow in a few days. but for most of this month and tonight i am happy that the roads are dry. Merry-Xmas-Eve to everyone!
