I used this pattern for "Joy" banners, except I didn't piece the border. I really like them like this-and it makes them really quick to whip up.
I also sent 18 packages of pretzel turtles and white chocolate covered pretzels. I forgot to take a picture before I sent them off. I did have a 'chocolate headache' a few times this week as I ate the broken ones or the ones that didn't turn out, as well as the left over chocolate. I may not eat chocolate for at least another week!
I found this fleece Santa panel that I purchased several years ago. I wasn't sure if I should make it in to a blanket or a wall hanging. In the end I put a backing on it and added two 'hangers' to the back and called it a wall hanging. If someone wanted to they could still use it as a blanket-it's small but would be fine for a young child. I forgot to measure it before I sent it but I think it measured about 33"x45". I love the bird backing.
I also got a little Christmas sewing of my own done. I made a blanket/pillow combo for one of my great-nieces-I saw this lady bug fleece and just HAD to buy some. I think a little 4 year old in MN is going to be very happy!
Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday.
