Celtic mystery part 4

With Christmas just a few days away I have finally finished the last of the Christmas gifts. And I have been able to grab a few minutes here and there to work on Part 4 of the CS mystery quilt. So happy that this part has been easy and with my color changes it has felt very timely to be working on units in green and red. I am not quite finished but I should be done by the time I head out of town to celebrate Christmas with my middle son and his family.

And I finally finished this little embroidery project. I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with it and ended up just making it into a pillow. As much as I love quilted wall hangings, it is often difficult to find a place for display so hopefully this will be better. I actually love how this turned out and may need to make myself something similar next year. In the meantime I am enjoying it in my livingroom until it gets wrapped. I guess that is cheating but I am sure the recipient wouldn't mind.

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season.
