Easy Street & Christmas!

 Here are my flying geese from Part 2 of Easy Street. I've not begun the next step. I was too busy singing in a Living Christmas Tree this weekend which was wonderful. 
 Speaking of Christmas, here is the completed Christmas tablecloth I worked on a few weeks ago.
And here's a photo of my first Christmas quilt, made in the 1980s. All different stars and hand quilted with stars and a cable border. Some of these leftover fabrics were used in the tablecloth above. Seriously! You can see the poinsettia sashing squares fabric in the tablecloth picture. I think the fabric had aged long enough!!
And when I've had a chance, I've done a little stitching on the 'finishing kit' from the SBOW, aka Evelyn's Album from Primitive Gatherings. One more block to stitch and then I need to put a design in all the stars. So far I just have one of those done. The heart has simply a blanket stitch with a few hundred french knots. Next is the border. Happy Stitching!

I am wondering about the "singing in a living Christmas tree" comment. Is that a choir? Your Christmas tablecloth is so colorful and festive. What a great way to use up some of that leftover Christmas material.
