Ornament Mat......and Other Things

Wow!! I didn't realize that I hadn't posted in so long a time!! I have been busy and I guess time just passed by faster than I thought.

Anyway, here is a picture of one of the little Ornament Mats that I made. I did not do a Christmas theme.......but, rather a fall theme for Thanksgiving. I also did not use flannel as the lining, but used muslin instead. I needed to practice my free motion quilting, so I free motioned quilted the mat with gold metallic thread. I thought it turned out okay. I put it on my dining table with a ceramic pumpkin on it. You can't see the quilting in the picture, but it is there. :)

Tomorrow, the Christmas tree is going to be put up and some of my Santa collection. I don't think I'll put them all out.........just some of them. Now, to find some time to go Christmas shopping for everyone.

I hope everyone has a great rest of the holiday weekend and make it a great day!

This is so pretty....fall colors are my favorites.

String quilting is such fun uses up some stash...which I've been doing with Christmas fabrics and this pattern. Just finished making 3 table mats.
