Winter Wall Hanging from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Winter Wall Hanging

Decking the halls is delightful; putting it all away after Christmas is the pits. But..what if your holiday decor could stretch all the way through winter? I’m here to say, it totally can! Jenny’s Winter Wall Hanging is festive enough for Christmas, but you can leave it up all the way to spring!  

Winter Wall Hanging

This cheery project combines several fun-to-make elements: easy present blocks, little wonky stars, a simple evergreen tree, and a pair of fuzzy-bearded gnomes that will look as stylish in February as they do on December 25th!

Christmas Sewing from Sew........This Is My Blog

As usual at this time of year my quilty friends are talking about their holiday sewing - looking for new and interesting ideas for their gift making, sharing photos of their projects, making a list and checking it twice (or checking things off!) I rarely, if ever, make Christmas gifts.  First, the stress turns something fun into a chore.  Second, I have to start early in the year to get it done on time, and once I've completed something I cannot wait that long to gift it!  So, for the first time in a very long time I made a ...

Handmade Toys for Kids - Sewing Plushie from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hey There, 

What was your favorite toy when you where little? For me it was a little pink and white stuffed penguin that rattled when you shock it.  My mom made it for me  and gave it to me the day I was born. I carried that penguin around EVERYWHERE...I couldn't sleep, eat, or function unless I new exactly where it was. Not sure how me and my pal the penguin parted ways but we were inseparable for quite a long time. 

Stuffed animals or plushies are not only cute but are a great comforting gift to make ...
