Finished in the Nic of Time

IMG_2712 I finally finished my Christmas project and just in the nic of time!  I got the idea from a post at Moda Bakeshop.  It was designed by Cara Wilson and was fairly quick to put together.  I made mine all from scraps.  I had fun pulling out all my red and green scraps and going through them for just the right shades.  I embellished my tree with some cute buttons, I even found some little gingerbread boy buttons and candy canes.  Then my cat came and stepped on the top left corner with his dirty little paw so it even has the cat seal of approval, I couldn’t bear to wash it off just yet.  It was a fun project and the best part is I finished it in time to display this year!

One of my favorite decorating ideas I had this year was to decorated my plate holder and It came out looking like a Christmas heart.  I love it!



Happy Holidays!

Ferne, I love your version!! The piano key border with the pinwheel corners is genius!! I'm just starting that same project. I may have to copycat a bit! LOL!

You can't go wrong with a cat's seal of approval. Your interpretation of the pattern is lovely. Have a wonderful holiday!
