Final Finishes for 2012!

To finish up 2012 - it's Morsel, the December A Year of Schnibbles!  I just decided Saturday night that I wanted to do some of these - love those .pdf files that you can purchase.  I wouldn't have been able to do these if I had to go out to hunt for the pattern, but clicking and printing is so easy.  The two on the left were made with a candy pack of Marmalade.  I added some rickrack and French knots to the left one, and added one of my grandmother's old buttons to the middle one.  The right one is made with leftovers from fabrics from the quilting cruise I took in August, so this is a remembrance from that fun trip.  I added some antique buttons to that one, too.  These were really fun to make, and I may make some more. 

Besides the holidays, we've been doing a lot of this:
We've had 21" of snow in the last week and a half.  The first 15" came the Thursday before Christmas - that storm was when this picture was taken.  Since then, we've had another 6".  We're about full up on places to put snow. Plus, I missed out on all the quilt shop after-Christmas sales, since I didn't want to drive on slick roads.  Probably a good thing for my wallet, though...

I made a couple new Christmas tree ornaments for this year.
The sheep is from the Primitive Blog Hop and is free here. The Noel ornament is a Primitive Gatherings pattern from a couple years ago.  I won't have much time to look at them on the Christmas tree this year, but I'll be really surprised when I open the box next year!  I'm sure I'll have totally forgotten them by then.

Hope everyone is having a nice New Year's Eve!  I've got to go do some internet shopping now, since my bricks-and-mortar shopping was thwarted by snow!


  1. Your Morsels are adorable. Way to go!

    Happy New Year, Kathy!

  4. Wow that looks like a lot of snow. I was looking at the Morsels pattern but didn't get started on them. Yours are really cute as can be.
