Almost a Christmas Finish

In November I happily tagged along with my husband on a lovely business trip to Germany.  As he worked during the day I would explore the local German communities and when I found myself with some down time I did handwork.  Three handwork projects were carefully packaged for the trip along with a book, that I still haven’t finished reading.  I did manage to complete the applique and embroidery on this wool Christmas mat by Primitive Gatherings, Lisa Bongean.

Christmas 2015 it will make a debut.  This project began nearly 2 years ago in a class I took at the Quilt Odyssey in Hershey PA from the project designer, Lisa Bongean.  Lisa’s creative talent and ability is nothing short of amazing and she has an incredible business, Primitive Gatherings.

Hmmmm…what will I work on next?  There are plenty of options waiting for me in my “playhouse.”
