Some Holiday Decorating

I always make plans to make stuff for my home for the holidays.  It never works out.  But now, I am no longer a HOLIDAY SLACKER. 

I finished a few things for the Holidays! 
I'm proud to say that my christmas tree is no longer naked

I came up with the pattern on my own.  It's based on my Spiderweb block.  Just tweaked a bit.... 

I hand quilted it and here's a closeup!  :)

Much Better, huh?!?!

Wait!  There's more!
I'm also happy to say that I also made an Advent Calendar for my kids! 

The pattern is based on Oh Fransson's Tutorial, but just tweaked a bit (again). 

I did 25 pockets instead of 24.

I embroidered the numbers and I hand quilted it (again!)  :) 

Amanda's beautiful calendar was the 'kick in the pants' that I needed to finish this.  Thanks, Amanda!  :)

Taylor really loves it.  She said, "Mama, I love your new calendar.  It's so beautiful." 
What can I say.... the kid has good taste.

Gotta go.  More holidays gifts to sew...
