Guess I'm still not quite done with Christmas. This is due in part to procrastination as well as to the win from Henry Glass Fabrics right before Christmas. You can see the fabrics here. Funny, one of the little Kleenex pack covers I made and showed in that post is going to the same person as this ornament is!
Lori's Country Cottage I got, oh about a century ago. Ha! Maybe about 1/5 of a century ago? Yee-ikes! How it ended up in with my stuff to take to Florida i have NO clue, but it did, and it grew up from paper to finished quilted ornament. Magic!
Bundle Up!, I made with fabric from a quilt shop I visited while at the Sisters Quilt Show in Oregon!
I quilted it with Sulky Holoshimmer in gold. Wonderful thread for wonderful fabrics. The back is another print in the Shelly Comiskey "Kringle Krossing" line.

One last very exciting announcement!!! Drum ROLLLL! I have a sponsor for
The Red Hen Shop on Etsy since 2013. She stocks a wide variety of fabric, which includes some older ones you might not find anywhere else. Click the link or the image to check out her shop! We are doing four bi-weekly draws for prizes, and besides Lisa and my offerings, there will be a $15 gift certificate for a lucky winner. And then there is the grand prize for all who complete 30 designs by March 15, a $50 gift certificate!
Although I won't be posting every one of my 30 designs here on the blog, here is #2. Had a little issues with colouring order...made good use of my eraser! All good.
