Christmas Wreath Wall Hanging

Time to get out a few Christmas things, so the first thing is the wall hanging of the Christmas wreath: I made this several years ago and each year sew new embellishments on it--it is loaded with all kinds of fun things--the manager scene that my daughter, Amy sent me is my favorite.

We had a wonderful time with our grandkids and our daughter and her husband--seems like the time flies by when we are with them,of course time spent with family is precious and with grandchildren is even more precious because they change so much in between each time we see them! My daughter took me to a wonderful quilting store, The Glass Thimble where she gave me a gift certificate and I got to shop for a wonderful quilt! I picked out Thimbleberries fabric for a wonderful winter quilt. Thank you so much, Amy! An even more treasured gift was pictures of the grandgirls in photo coasters--of course I may be a bit prejudiced, but I think they look like models!!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

The wreath is beautiful. I just love the TB fabrics, and I have that pattern in one of my books, but I have not made it. Maybe we can make it together as our own BOM!

I love your wreath! I'm so glad you had such a great visit! Sounds like you are blessed with a wonderful daughter and family.

I just got another great idea from you, Jan. I also have a wreath wall hanging--not as cool as yours--made from lop-sided log cabin blocks, if that makes any sense. I was kind of bored with it until I saw your idea of sewing the buttons and charms on it! Now I have incentive to hang it up and embellish it. Thanks, girlfriend!
