Deck the Halls!

Started the process of decking the halls, or in this case, my kitchen table.
This quilt is my own design called Ribbons and Bows and is available from TOWQS
The centerpiece includes just a few of my favorite Santas from my collection.
This fella is my favorite!

Ran across another designer holiday event.  Some of my favorite designers will participate and share free projects.  There will be clues to collect and prizes awarded.  I haven't had much luck recently.  Neither Allie, the owl pincushion or the Snowman Candy piece are on their way to my abode!

I know I will just have fun exploring some new designer blogs.

Finally, a little of my DD's artwork.
 I saw these in an art gallery in Durango, CO. Didn't she do a great job.  She even did the woodworking that produced the cutwork edges.
Looking for a chandelier for it and then she will do a garden scene with a skeleton dog!
