Christmas Preparations

It's hard to believe that it's that time of year again! Christmas is just a bit more than a month away--impossible!
Anyway, thanks to our Cerro Gordo Quilters group, I have 2 finished projects and more underway.
Our October lesson was this Poinsettia wall hanging. It's 3-D and embellished with beads in the centers of the poinsettias--very striking, I think.
Many thanks to Kathy who taught this lesson!
Our November lesson was no-sew quilted ornaments. Here is one of mine. They are made with prairie points pinned onto a Styrofoam ball--so simple. I have more in progress since I taught the lesson and needed samples. Also did a Christmas tree based on this design, putting the prairie points on a cone. Pretty little things and would make great gifts if one needs a little something for someone.

More projects underway--lots of gifts to make yet...
