2006 - Christmas and Winter Wallhangings

I love the Art to Heart books. There's enough cute things in them to make something new each year.

This reindeer I made for my cubical at work. I LOVE his Christmas light buttons.

Then I made this adorable piece for our door. Wow...I had the iron on the heat and bond a little too long because the heat and bond actually melted IN to the fabric making it really difficult to applique. I was breaking thread every inch or so. It took me about 8 hours to applique. This was also the first piece that I free motion quilted after I took my first class. I was SOOOO proud of myself.

Because I had recently learned to satin stitch I made this snowflake wall hanging for my cubical at work. It's a hit and it didn't even turn out that great!!

I have the Santa and Rudolph that we did as a table runner for my first applique piece. Think I started with too much??? Very cool pieces you have there.
