I usually have a hard time convincing myself that it is time to get the Christmas decorations out. I decided that this year I need to do a little bit every day until it is all out. I found these embroidered squares when I was looking for something else. I got my first embroidery machine in 1994 and I did a lot of samples on denim cut from old blue jeans. Here is a picture of the quilt I made from those squares. Every year I embroidered a few winter/Christmas designs on denim.
I think this will be my first Christmas project for this year. I will look through my flannel fabric for red plaids and stripes and green ones too. The squares are 8" so I'll have to figure out if I need to embroider a couple more. I used to to extensive hand embroidery and no longer do because of arthritic thumb joints and carpal tunnel problems. I have always loved embroidery so I get my 'fix' watching the machine work now.
