Happy New Year and Merry Christmas

Hello everyone I hope you had a happy Christmas and New Year. I spent it with my children. I have almost finished Long Time Ago In Bethleham, had a little problem with finishing Twas the night before Christmas and am slowly catching up with Christmas in Italy and Fernhill which only means I have to get my act together. I am hoping to have Long Time Ago In Bethleham finished over the weekend. I hope you and yours had a wonder time and I’ll catch up again.

Another one from Twas the night before christmas

This is my biggest block for Twas the night before christmas.  I’m sorry about the quality but it is a big piece and used the panaromic setting on my camera.  As you can see the transfer had a line through it but it has faded after one wash so I’m hoping it will eventually disappear.

Twas the night before christmas

I have alwaysl like the poem Twas the night before christmas.  It takes me back to times when things were simple.  I know there are a number of variations of the design but I like this one by Hugs ‘n Kisses.  It basically uses two colors red and white. And I love the red cotton by DMC which is varigated.  It is lovely.  Well I have finished the blocks which I had to stitch.  I was a bit upset with one of them as the pattern used iron-on transfers and it was very challenging to do and to make matters worst, one of the patterns had a unwanted line in it.  But it is amazing that after one wash it started to lightened down.  Hopefully it will disappear.  I hope you enjoy what I have done .
