Merry Christmas for 2011

Merry Christmas to all the crafty cats out there in Blogland. One week to go, two days of work, and two very excited children. Our Christmas tree is up and so is my WIP wallhanging called 'Christmas Baubles' - I haven't quite finished it, but came close! You might remember this quilt from earlier this year. It's from a pattern by Audrey & Maude. You can see I changed the borders a bit. Thanks Helen for the pattern - I can't believe it's taken me so long to make it!

It's now about two thirds quilted (all done by hand) with perle thread. I've done all the borders and the baubles and started the outline quilting around the tree. You can see all the pins are still in - kind of post-modern Christmas decorations!
I wish you all a very happy and safe Christmas and all the best for a wonderful 2012.
