It's been a great 12 Days of inspiration, tutorials, give aways, and a quilt along. I would like to thank SARAH for doing a fantastic job with her first Hop and QAL. She has a linky set up for everyone to show their projects made during the hop - looking forward to seeing the variations of the quilt. Also, she is setting up a tab to keep the Hop links open - I am excited about that as there were way too many things that went on my 'to-do' list without the time. Now I can revisit to get some presents completed for the season.
Today's Hosts Are:
I worked on the Feather Tree mini. 1/4 inch strips of green fabric and one strand each of green and red DMC floss.
I make a single over-hand knot about 2" from the end.
I cut four 2" green strips and ran my thread thru the middle. That over-hand knot helps to not pull my threads all the way thru. Then I take one wrap around the bundle, feed my needle/thread back thru the middle. Then it is sewn to the mini with the last pull to the top. I use a suture knot to finish off those thread ends. This is the way I put hair on my little dolls.
I am keeping my tree a little 'Charlie Brown' as I want to add more to this closer to the Holiday. Those little strips of green will be snipped in half and fluffed more to give it more of a feather look.
The smaller version of Sarah's quilt pattern is currently under the needle for quilting. Since the linky is open until the end of the month, I will have time to finish this one to show on a link-up post.
I thought I would share another easy Christmas project and gift idea. Hanging tea towel with matching potholders. My SIL makes these Easy Hanging Towels - Dish Towel & Potholder.
Thank you for visiting us all during the 12 Days,
