    First let me apologize for the less than stellar photos. I used my cheap phone camera to send to my DIL and then she sent back to me via email. Not as clear and sharp as I would like, but my camera has died and this was the only way I had to keep pictures.

    I made the stocking for my DGN in Texas. Made the boot pattern and used my new machine to effect stitching (or at least that was my intent). Embellished it with a couple of stars, Swarvorski crystals on the antlers and one for Rudolph's nose. Then used a grommet and a rawhide thong looped and tied for the hangar. I hope he likes it.

    The Santa wallhanging was made out of leftovers. Embellished with sparkly pom pons for hat and nose, buttons for eyes, blush on cheeks, crystals on Christmas trees, quilted freehand on my new machine, yarn for beard.

    The Table topper was made from the leftovers from another that I made into a tree skirt. Appliqued the center which was fussy cut and quilted in circles around the center. For my DN also in TX.

    Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and may all your Christmas projects get finished on time.

    Your projects are just beautiful. I love the wall hanging. Great job on all three.

    fantastic projects
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Every time I attempt to quilt a small project, my admiration for longarmers just grows by leaps and bounds and I am already in amazement at what you do.

    All three are wonderfully creative projects. The boot is really clever and beautifully done. But so are the others. Too hard to pick a favorite. Very nice work!

    The boot is cute but that table topper is just stunning.
