Mom & Dad, please stop reading!
All the rest of you, please continue!
Last summer I got my hands on Moda’s Comma.
I loved it so much that I did not dare to cut into it. But I decided last week that I would make this a Comma’s Christmas. Why buy fabric if I was not going to use it? SILLY! The line is not Christmassy, but I used it as such! The orange is close enough to red, right?
( We here in the Netherlands celebrate two days of Christmas. We just stuck an extra day after Christmas day. I do not have a clue why or when this tradition came to be, but it is very handy! We never have trouble making arrangements with family, because we always have another day to pick from. This year my parents are coming to my house first Christmas day. The second day we will spend at their house and all of the rest of the family will gather there too. It will be a “full house”. )
I made my parents a quilted stocking each as a present. They are quiet large and I do not have anything to put in them yet. I will have to go out to the shops this weekend.
The middle one is for me!
This fabric is not Comma! But it goes with the rest quiet well.
I love how the grey fabric looks a bit like fur!
I used fabrics, patterns and FMQ that matched the recipients personalities. I am happy with how they turned out, but I may do some “foot surgery” on the stockings. I do not like the shape of the foot of one of them.
Becides a charmpack I also had some half yard cuts. I turned one of them into a tablerunner. I may do another one, but it is also possible that I will make napkins out of the rest of the fabric. Or… nothing at all, depending on how the rest of my “must finish before Christmas”-projects go.
Tablerunner hanging from the radiator… no clean surfaces at the moment! All kinds of Christmas stuff has invaded my house. First thing tomorrow = clean-up!
And the back is in red, just in case I might want to make things more Christmassy!
I need to remove some threads from the back, but that can wait until the new year. Essential things first!
Okay, I going to write my to-do-list now and will be “checking it twice”!
Lots of hugs and a happy holiday to you all!
