    Well I finally finished the Christmas Tablerunner for my DS, DDIL and my 3 grandsons. This was a special request from my DDIL for their table for this coming Christmas.
    I had the boys in mind and they were the inspiration for the tablerunner. They are little for such a short time and I wanted to make something fun. I know I displayed this before but I had finished the top and not the quilting, So here it is, there are over 250 snowflakes of varying sizes done in red thread. Finished the binding while I was there.
    I made my yearly trip to NY to see the family and gave it to them when I got there. Everyone loved it so that made me happy. I told them to take a picture when the decorate for Christmas.

    Thank you all so much, It was a fun one to do. Your compliments are very special to me because you are all such great quilters in your own right.
    Lisa, where do you live upstate? My DS and DDIL live in Long Island and my only sister lives in Ithaca. Boy does it get cold and snowy up there.
    We are coming into winter here. It does snow here but rarely, Mendoza, Argentina at the foot of the Andes mountains is here for me.

    Penny, this is such a festive quilt. I am sure your grands will enjoy this for many Christmases to come. Bet their eyes lit up when they saw this piece. Can't believe that soon we will be thinking about Christmas again.

    My step-sis and brother are from Ithaca. I live much further north though. I live in a small town that's half-way between Syracuse and Watertown. 3 winters ago we were blessed with 12' of snow before the end of February, lol. It makes for many cozy winter days quilting indoors! =)

    You did a great job, I like it alot.
    Do you recall where you got the fabric with the dots on it? I'd like to get some if I can locate it.

    What a labor of love!

    The "furry" effect of the stitching around Santa's beard and cuffs really caught my attention. Very nice touch!
