Oh Christmas Tree Gifty Project

When I first saw the Oh Christmas Tree pattern by Nancy Rink, it was love at first sight.  So I begged Nancy if we could use her pattern as a download pattern for Gifty this year.  Her directions were so easy to follow and the project went together so quickly, depending on what applique method you use.  It only took me a weekend (with lots of other engagements) to finish this project up.  I used fusible applique, but hand embroidered the button stitch around the tree.

Santa’s New Suit!

How cute are these placemats and napkins by Jo-Lydia’s Attic??  They’re just so delightful and cheery and make me want to fill my belly with a bowl full of jelly.  ;]  And, they were super easy to make.  I chose from the Quilter’s Candy Prints because they’re not too busy yet still completely adorable!  I also chose the fake fur option on the placemats because I think the texture makes them pop ...
