Merry Christmas!

After winning a copy of Sew Embellished by Cheryl Lynch, I adapted one of her patterns to make this holiday wall hanging. It was also my entry for our quilt guild's "Star Challenge". Cheryl includes all of the instructions for making the quilted project, including the prairie points at the top and the "jewels" at the bottom. I'll be adding even more embellishments like bells, buttons and beads for next year, but I'm calling it done for this Christmas.

Peace on earth! This rare photo of Jesse permitting Scooter in his space for a winter nap was a surprise. Young Scooter is very respectful of 14 1/2-year old Jesse, who puts him in his place as needed. This is either a moment of good will, or else Jesse slept through Scooter climbing onto "his" sofa. Jesse is hard of hearing now and he sleeps deeply. Whatever the reason, it made us chuckle. Hoping you enjoy the holidays!
