Something about those little embroidered circles sitting on top of the fabric is so appealing. I like how she didn't stitch along the edge but attached by sewing from the back. Just makes me want to touch them.
Makes it 3-D. Another potential handwork project for you?
Those are adorable!
no. I've decided to do another Christmas thing - not that I'm that enamored of Christmas quilts, but I found a pattern that I'm going to personalize with items of significance to our Christmas traditions. I'm currently trying to draw a three-legged donkey on honor of the nativity one that DD broke when she was five and has been standing so ever since.
My Mom bought a navity set when she was 19 and on her own. The figures were made of painted plaster and the manger was cardboard, printed to look like wood. When I moved out on my own, she gave me the set. It is one of the treasures that I have.
There is a tiny baby Jesus to fit into the manger. *MY* girls, when they were growing up, heard that story many times. AND they probably played with the navity set when I wasn't looking. As it so happened, disaster struck when, one year, they couldn't find the cardboard manger. I'm sure they were terror-struck. :-)
Raised to think of solutions (and in an attempt to pull the wool over my eyes so I wouldn't become angry), Catherine (our oldest and probably the instigator), fashioned a replacement manger out of brown Fimo clay. :-) (It didn't fool anyone!)
Well, later on, the original cardboard manger was found (hooray!) but I've kept the Fimo replacement all these years. :-)
Addendum: have you see the meme where someone put a baby Yoda in the navity scene, alongside the Wise Men? LOL!
A personalized Christmas quilt will be a family treasure for sure.
Aw! Love that she made a replacement. And I've seen the yoda meme. LOL!!!!
What a great idea. Our little baby Jesus hand got mysteriously broken off one year. And payed ever so gently back in the cradle with him by the “not me gang” lol
Wow I do love those too. I’ve never thought to sew from behind! Love it
