Hearthside Seasons

Here is my version of Kim Diehl's holiday freebie.
It was first brought to my attention by my quilting friend, Deb, and then I saw Karen's version here.
My applique is done in wool and I changed the placement of some of the holly leaves.
You can find the pattern here and the applique templates here.
My goal was to get it finished before the end of the month for Darlene's and Cheryl's 
Christmas Through the Year.
I don't think I will make it, but I do have at least one more gift almost done for the rapidly approaching holiday.  My goal is to enjoy the season and not stress the whole gift giving thing. I like the idea of giving gifts for local services and/or sold by local small businesses.
Needless to say, I did not shop on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Now,
it is time to decorate the house!

Using wool is such a good idea for that applique. Makes the project go faster and easier and I like the look. Glad you were inspired.
