First Winter Holiday Quilt Block

Holiday Quilt Blocks

"Welcome to the North Pole: Santa's Village in Applique" by Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins - Piece O' Cake Designs.

When I first saw a completed quilt based on the designs offered in this book, I wanted very much to make one just like it. I was completely enchanted by the playful little houses and tipsy trees.

Sharing a little experiment using Kanzashi templates, Pellon and craft mirrors to create a garland. Another idea that came to me in the shower!

How to Welcome an Estonian Päkapikk Into Your Home For Advent.

P1120833

Päkapikk! Delightful little elf like creatures that visit good little Estonian children every night during Advent! (See "mermaid's " comment below for the proununciation.)

Not much is known about Päkapikk! They started appearing in Estonia about 40 years ago and it seems they have been very secretive about where they come from or how they came to be!

Yarnia Inspired Angels: Making the Quilted Angel

P1120415

I have been holding on to every last scrap of this sparkly star fabric and using it for only very special projects! It is impossible to show, but the fabric has millions and millions of shiny silver bits embedded in the fabric which wink and sparkle constantly.

Not being a quilter nor having ever gotten the hang of free motion quilting, my efforts to create a quilted wing will probably not astound and amaze you! But the end result is working nicely and the wings sparkle at me every time I walk by!

I had so much fun making Angels using scrap yarn and cardboard cones from Yarnia that what started out to be an angelic duet turned into a choir of six!
