When Glen and I decided that we were going to sew all our Christmas gifts in 2011 we did not really know what we were getting ourselves into.Many years ago my aunt Carole had given me a paper piecing pattern called "Christmas Memories"
This is Glen and our Sphynx cat Odd sitting on the balcony in the middle of some July evening heat stitching on bells, or bows
The good part is that we did manage to get every thing done by mid October! We are doing the little snowmen again this year so I will post picture of them as we work on them, but here are some pictures of our completed 'Christmas Memories' - some of the fabric used was brand new and some I've held onto for 20 years!
The body of this Angel was actually done by my aunt and the wing (oops upside down) I appliqued and is made from a bunch of vintage napkins I found while roaming a second hand store - it is my favourite.
