The next picture is of my ornaments for an exchange...the ornaments are for a Jesse Tree. A Jesse Tree is a way to celebrate Advent in the month of December...you can do a Google search for more info if you want! Twenty-five ladies from our Bible Study are doing the exchange...so I made 25 sheep and each lady will get a sheep. In return, I'll get a different ornament from each of the other 24 ladies. So in the end, we'll each have 25 different ornaments. It's very similar to a quilt block swap!! :)
Here is a close up of the sheep...I used Warm & White batting for the body and black felt for the ears/feet. I showed them to a friend today and she pointed out that they don't have tails, so I guess I'll go back and give them tails before the exchange.
This is a picture of my first disappearing 9patch top. At a quilt group a week or two ago, I received a nice variety of 5" Christmas charms...when I added them to my already existent stash of Christmas charms, I decided I needed to try and make something with them! I would still like to add another border, but I need to go to a LQS and pick something out!
Lastly...I wanted to show you one of the benefits of working at a Thrift Shop! You get first dibs at the stuff that comes in! I picked up these two books for .25 each!! Now, I need another quilt book like I need a hole in the head, but how can you pass up a quilt book for a quarter??
