I made this little wallhanging for a 12" Christmas block swap I am in with the ABC Quilters. I found the pattern in an old Debbie Mumm book I had and adapted it for the size I needed. I made the ornaments from preprinted Christmas fabrics and double sided timtex. I even made some extra ornaments for the tree. My husband wants one too, lol.
I am also in a REALLYsmall Christmas ornament swap with the ABC'ers. I made some little mittens that I really like.Unfortunately there are only 5 of us participating. And I just love ornament swaps. Oh well, Here's what I made.
It is finally getting cold here in the NC Mountains. We even had a little snow this morning. I like the chillier weather, especially when I don't have to go to work. I had a nice surprise this weekend at work. The holiday schedule came out and for the first time in my nursing career (30 years) I don't have to work any of the holidays!! I have always had to work either Christmas Day or Christmas Eve every year. And I'm off on Thanksgiving and New Years too!! I don't know what I did to get this (maybe because I work every weekend...), but I'm certainly not going to complain. It should be a great holiday time this year.
