Now that Christmas is over, I can show you the little wall hanging I made for my DD. This was another project I had put aside for quite awhile. The pattern is called, "Cherry Blossoms" by Designs to Share with You. It is 19"x23" (48cm x 58cm) and is machine pieced and hand appliqued. The quilting was done with machine stitching in the ditch and hand work using the classic method of Sashiko. The cherry blossoms are small yo-yos gathered in four places to create little five-petalled flowers.
I took this photo a couple of days ago when we had sunshine. Yes, we actually had sunshine!!!! It doesn't help to give a better photo, but I just love sunshine in the winter months, when the sun is so low in the sky that the rays reach across the room and brighten up even the darkest corners.
Hope you all had a good Christmas. Mine was quiet, but nice and relaxing - time well spent with close family members.
