Quilt by Maria Shell


Oh this looks like so much fun! It makes me want to run to my sewing machine and get busy.
(Most things make me want to do that, but still.) This quilt by Maria Shell of Anchorage, Alaska is called "Treasure Map" and it measures 29" x 29." Nice color mix and improv lines. Yayy, Maria!

More Gingerbread Houses!


I think this is one of the prettiest gingerbread houses I've ever seen! From Vroman's


From Sweetopia, above and below. Marian shows how to make icing. Click the link for more.



This house was featured in the Maryland Pennysaver magazine. I especially like the almond roof and the jelly bean chimney. 

This looks like so much fun!

Embellishment Tree


A pretty Christmas tree made with trims and embellishments. This tree doesn't contain any selvages, but some of her others do. To see more, visit Jackie at House on the Hill in New Zealand.
