Christmas quilt, punch needle and Izzy!

I finished two more pieces today. The first is a free pattern called Home for Christmas by Hatched and Patched. It was a fun piece to make and I used wool for the applique to make it easier. My tongues are a bit whonky though.


The second is my snowman punch, I ended up making it into a pillow. I like how it came out and pillows are nice since you can sit them on shelves or use in bowls and baskets. The design is by Brenda Gervais.


The kitties are being their usual obnoxious selves, pulling down garland, walking off with candy canes and knocking down anything in their path;) And sometimes they are quiet and find a nice cozy place to sleep.

( Sidenote ) For those of you who voted for Dora in the kitty contest, I want to thank all of you. She won second place in the voters choice, so I will be getting some new fat quarters, thread and a round cutter!

Like the wonky tongues. Wonky is primitive to me.

GORGEOUS!!!!! Oh my I don't know which I love more. The kitties sound typical, lol...I don't know why, but mine seems to be more playful at this time of year, think they know Santa is coming? And don't they realize how easily they could be on the naughty list?

Congrats on your win, girl!!!

I wish I could get the hang of needle punch. When we have a tree up my Sadie loves to lie underneath.

I have not had time to visit for a bit and all I have to say is WOW! You have been very busy. Love all your projects but really like those punched snowmen. Those two are really nice.

My kitty is pulling all the ribbons on the gifts under my tree. He seems to be over his interest in the garland and ornaments but he just loves playing with the ribbons.

This year I decided that needle felted acorns with them, which I hung on my tree and used them in my Christmas presents.
