Aftermath

It's 62 degrees, the sun is peeking out and the power is on, I am counting my blessings.  I must be getting near the end of the holiday sewing since the balsam is running out..  Last year I made up these 4-1/2" crazy quilt blocks but did not put them to use.  This morning I appliqued some trees onto them and fashioned ornaments out of them.  The photo on the right is the matching 6" pillow.  Used a different fabric for the trees on the ornaments to create some contrast.  The stitching around the trees is a blanket stitch and the cross stitching is what is called a quilting stitch.  Not sure why the makers of my machine call it that but I like it since it stands out more,  Also used it to sew the border.
