    The Sleigh Ride is a MUST HAVE. That is so darn cute and absolutely beautiful.

    Have the sleigh rides done, the bell/poinsetta done, the ornament of tranquility done, now onto the bell. I think I will also do the poinsetta and holly. It is pretty.

    Oh the weather outside is frightful...

    I embroidered 2 sets of snowmen last night. They are blue cotton on Kona white (you'd never guess from the photos). Do you like them as is? Or do you want blue borders, corners or something else? I like how we are working these blocks out together.

    They are so cute Fraew, either way for me. I always figure if I happen to get one and need it a little bigger for the correct placement in the quilt, I can add a border. Whatever you decide will be great I'm sure.

    Frae, your snowmen are adorable! I've been waiting to see what fun blocks you were going to post...as to border, corners, etc. If your embroidery is smaller and you have more space I think borders of some kind add a nice touch, but if the embroidery work covers most of the block, it's entirely up to you! Your embroidery work appears to take up most of the space and they look awesome as they are, but if you want borders, I'm sure they'll be wonderful as well...what fun, fun, fun!!! It's so great that some of you have embroidery machines and can make such fun pretties so those of us who don't can still swap and get one or two.

    I am looking forward to those pieced blocks. Those are really nice. Marlena thought they were perfect, ie why I am in. I have finished up the bells now and takinga b reak so I can get on the longarm. I am making snowflakes for the craft. This has been good, I have also finished up the bargello I needed done, a block that needed done, and sewed up my triangle ornaments. I have even cut up the blocks for another quilt that a customer has paid me to o for them. It is looking really nice. Had to switch out a color and I think it worked out well. back to work for me ladies, potty/water break over. YEs, I will post photos when I am done longarming, also I need to trim up the blocks so they look nice.

    Fraew, love those snowmen. They are going to look pretty with what I have.

    I think some kind of blue with a glittery snowflake would be perfect! Those are awesome!

    Sounds like some with snowflakes and some without to me! I can do that. I couldnt resist buying blue snowflake fabric the other day as I also thought these would look great with that fabric...but also liked the flexibility of just leaving them as is. See why I couldn't decide???

    Here is my final set. They are 12.5 inches. I think I am going to make a bunch of these and make them into a bunting type decoration. Ronda, I will send them out just as soon as Sanda gets over herself and ships out to sea. Right now I have to batten down the hatches and try to weather out the storm. Good luck to all the others on the east coast!

    Fraew- those snowmen are so adorable. Beautiful!
    Craft phanatic- what a great idea, is that the Chinese lantern block? Looks a bit like the old fashioned ornaments my parents used to have.

    Well, colour me officially intimidated. I love the sleigh ride and the snowmen are just so cute! I wanna, I wanna. Plus the pieced ornaments block - wow! I warned you when I signed up mine would be very simple. So before I go any further, thought I'd better run these samples by you. They are 9-1/2" and I think I'm going to change out the border on the pinwheel to red instead of green.

    This is the center of a 12.5" block. I'll put an 8 pointed star around it. I'm trying to decide whether to use gold or red for the star. I've used so much gold that I'm tired of it so my judgement isn't the best right now. Suggestions, please?

    Your blocks will make a nice compliment to others posted Belfry! I would recommend going with red for the eight point star block as you do have quite a bit of gold. Pretty, pretty!
