Is it lame to still be working on Christmas projects? I’m trying to finish up the projects that I started with the hope of making them for Christmas this year. In particular, I’m working on my Reindeer Embroidery. (Original post and pattern info here: http://angelapingel.com/2011/10/cosmo-floss-and-amh-needleworks.html) I knew that the embroidery would take a while, but I actually finished all nine reindeer by the day after Christmas. But then there’s the whole doing something with them!
I can’t remember all the ones that I’ve shown, but I do know a few that I haven’t because I know that they were the last ones I was working on.
He’s so my favorite of the whole group. Double fisting it with the drinks and lights in his antlers. Classic. Way to celebrate in style buddy.
She’s the only lady of the nine reindeer according to this pattern set and she’s quite the lady indeed. Her coat just kills me (and to honest was a little intimidating to work on…but slow and steady wins the race). Here she is in her completed improv block.
Did we see this guy yet? I’m loving the text print in the upper corner of the block. The 5 just pops out at me and sort of screams studio 54. 😉
Here’s a look at a bunch of the other blocks and embroidery I’ve done….
I’m starting to put the blocks together. It’s looking great. I’m kind of loving improv piecing lately. Such a nice break from strict patterns and dimensions.
My design wall (a super fabulous piece of batting hanging over my couch….have I mentioned that I can’t WAIT to have a sewing room again?!):
I actually have all the blocks together now and I’m piecing them together. I’m just debating what to do with them when they are all together. Just a wall hanging I guess. I don’t think I need another Christmas quilt. lol But I don’t have a wall hanging. So it could work. I’ll see as it comes together more. I’ll keep you posted!
