December Finishes!

I've been on a roll this month finishing up some UFO's!  It feels so good to end the year with all these finishes.  Do you have any finishes this month?

These first two are not UFO's but Christmas presents...

1.  Mitered placemats made using this neat tool!  These are part of a gift for my Mother-in-law.  I hope she likes them.  The mitering was really easy to do, I had never mitered before and was impressed.

2.  Using another cool tool I made these pleated towels which go with the placemats.  I purchased the towels and then added the pleated ruffle using the 1 inch size for pleating.  Really easy and quick.

Now on to the finishes!

1.  Wreath of flowers
            I had started this way back in 2005, finally finished the top at Retreat in 2010, finally got it quilted and            I put the binding on this month and it is now hanging up....

2.  Squatting Snowman was next to be finished.  I made the top in a class at the LQS oh prior to 2009.  Finally bit the bullet and quilted it and he proudly greeting people on our front door.

3.  Gingerbread table runner
                The six blocks were made for me by a Secret Sister and I put them together into this runner a year or so ago.  Got it quilted and bound this week, and it is now on my dining room table, which is not what it is on for the picture.

And of course during all this sewing I had a he is!  Sure made it interesting...LOL

I also made this wall hanging for a swap I participated with online.  I really like how it turned out and will need to make one for me for next year. She sent me a F4 and I had to come up with the pattern and other fabrics to use.

I also sent off a F4 and here is the darling wall hanging I received!

You've been busy!- love the last one with the little snowmen! That's what I need to do- just work on small projects- maybe I could accomplish something!
