Christmas Lamb

I got home about an hour ago, had an expensive time at my favorite LSS, but DH paid!!, enjoyed lunch with our friend, and after groceries were put away, decided to do another for the WT.

The background is patched, the label is a new Nestie, and the lamb is a Bosskut I've been anxious to try out. The star is metallic gold, but is not bent.....that's the way the light hit the arms of the star. I really like this, and may do more with the lamb, but not the patches. Too many x's!!

Thanks for looking!

RED patched happy snowman!

Years ago when I made real quilts, one of the easiest to make was called Crazy Quilt. It had no pattern, just random pieces of fabric were appliqued onto a backing. That's what I did with this card for the Ways To Use It challenge at SCS today. I had a lot of RED scraps (Gee! Go figure!!), so I took out the folder FULL of them, and patched them on a piece of RED. I paper pieced the snowman as well, and popped up a hat to show just how happy he was.

DH and I are off for the day. I'm going to my favorite LSS, we're meeting a friend for lunch, then groceries (that part is yucky!). I'll be back to comment tonight. Have a wonderful day. Hugs!
