Gifts for Peg

Today I am sharing the gifts I made for Peg in our Friends in Stitching Christmas swap. This hanging angel is a Rosalie Quinlan design from her little Christmas book, Petit .. Noel. I struggled a bit with the ric-rac but got there in the end!

For the main Christmas Day present I made Peg the table runner version of Painted Ladies by Fig Tree.

I used Honey Sweet  for the butterfly wings ... 

and Butterscotch and Rose for the posts, butterfly bodies and  border.

I find that Fig Tree ranges mix really well together.

The lovely Sarah did the quilting on her long arm quilting machine. I chose the butterfly design as pictured below. The backing fabric is a Henry Glass neutral I found at Spotlight a few years ago.

I have done quite a bit of sewing since Christmas and will pop back soon to show what I've been doing. It is so nice to have some 'me' time after such a busy year.
Happy New Year.
