Christmas Wall Hanging

Christmas Wall Hanging

Merry Christmas Ya'll!
 This is a small wall hanging done with some curved piecing of the snow and sky. The trees are pieced and appliqued to the background. Quilting is free motion. The sky is in a McTavishing pattern and the snow is freeform wavy lines. The stars are free motion thread painted.
The fabric for the sky is absolutely beautiful and I do not know where it came from, except from my stash. It is possible someone gave it to me. It is blue with white stars. It has a metallic sheen that is just gorgeous. I quilted the sky with dark blue embroidery thread. The quilting on the white snow is with a very light silvery :) color  to make the stitching snow up better. 
It measures 12 x 18.5 inches.

Thanks for visiting. I would love to hear from you!

Wow, I have been away from Blogland too long!!

Life can really be a BEAR!

I can't believe that it has been so long since I posted. I have been working very hard and so has all of my family. Just haven't been able to keep up. 
I participated in my first Craft Fair 2 weeks ago with some success. The display I had planned didn't work due to things "beyond my control" It was VERY windy and very cool for Florida. It was a learning experience and I am glad I did it. Made some sales too. I have a number of projects in the que waiting to be written up. I WILL be back.
