Making Christmas - Week 5.

Making Christmas

Count down to Christmas!! stress-free, enjoying every moment??!!
re-showing the Advent Calendar, 




and the tablecloth, some lovely French material
from amazon, a fat quarter with pinked edges,
which i have hemmed:




 to avoid sewing what seems like hundreds
of small pieces of log cabins for the quilt,
'sunshine and shadow' theme,
i will make each one whole:



  for the lace cloth, here,
to make it in two pieces will be easiest:



 the edge or headside is made by connecting the two pieces
of lace with a crochet hook. 
the stitch used is called cloth stitch.



1. lace tablecloth.
2. log cabin quilt.
3. father's choice half square triangle practice.

    1. Thank you, Julie-Kate, it was fun to make and only took a day! I used the first quilt I made for the backing, and bought silver and gold numbers, and decorations to stick on it - and plan to fill them with something before dec.1st.
