More Christmas gifts

I had two BIG finishes this month, but could not show it until my DD and DS had opened their Christmas gift.  I guess you have seen some blocks called Svennebrevet on my blog.  They was to be included in to big quilts.


One in brown and blue for my DS


And I found a lovely brown backing.  I did not shoot a photo of him opening his gift, but he was very happy to receive it.


For my DD Imade one in pink and red with a touch of green,


and I used a pink floral fabric for backing.  Both quilts are longarm quilted by Merethe.  I have never been able to do this quilting on my little Janome sewingmachine.  The quilts are BIG and Merete quilted them in just a couple of days and I had yards by yards of binding to do.


My DD was so happy with her quilt and it is already in use in her bedroom.


I got a lot of wonderful presents from my children


family and good friends. As you see there is a lot of quilty presents so it looks like I have been on Santas nice list.

Spending time these Christmas days watcing old Christmas movies and stitching, until I got an SMS on the phone asking how much I had done on my homework on the antique sampler project……………..I tell you more in my next post.

Saying for today:

There's a star up in the sky,
but the light is in our eyes.
