A Little Christmas Decorating!

No, I'm not actually decorating for Christmas--yet. My nephew is getting married in two weeks, so we had a shower for his fiancé. I decided to give them some Christmas items to decorate with.

First I made them a table runner. I used a charm pack and a fat quarter of Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater for Moda.

I meandered around on the blocks.

And I used a fancy stitch on my machine to edge the strip at each end. I used white thread, so it is hard to see.

Then I decorated a little tree with some lights, ribbon, and red berries. I put it in an aged bucket and surrounded it with pine cones. And made a big ribbon to put on it.

Merry Christmas, Clint and Kayla!

How pretty Kim! Your one of a kind gift is so perfect, I know the newly weds are going to get some use of them. What an awesome idea!
