Christmas- not yet

Just finished, ready for Christmas in Hawaii, my Christmas Ringo Pie bee block-an advent tree for Amber.  I found this wooden tree on Flickr and that was my starting point.
The bordered squares are 1.5 inches.  I stamped the words- a line from White Christmas using Versacraft ink as it sets permanently onto the fabric.
The background fabric and stamped squares are Kona Snow.  I have very little Christmas fabric so I dived into the red and green in my vintage and new fabrics so it is an eclectic mix.
You can see the other Christmas blocks which have rolled in so far here as well as the first blocks from Amy's camera theme too here and here.
It might be a while till Christmas but it is the start of stitching time- I am hoping to get some paper pieced patterns ready for sale in the next 2 weeks with Christmas designs ready for stockings, cushions etc.  Keeps me busy x

  4. This is beautiful Kerry! You've inspired me to think of this as an advent calendar, in larger form, with pockets on the front of each square. Would you mind me having a go at one? Jxo

  7. Such a cool Christmas block Kerry! The vintage feel to it goes perfectly with that time of year. It almost makes me wish it was Christmas already...almost not quite there yet ;-)
