Stitched Christmas Card

Good Morning everyone and apologies for not posting sooner. I was away last week for a few days seeing our friends in London and went  last Thursday with my friend Val to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham . We had a great day but the festival was a little disappointing lots of stalls and displays but everything was very similar so it  was easy to get sick of looking. Still we both enjoyed it and managed to find some nice goodies. Now its just us finding the time to  play with them!! We also joined a class showing you how to applique a 30'sstyle butterfly. My first photo is of  the quilt the lady brought  we attempted one of the butterfly panels. It was a lovely quilt I'm unfortunately light years away from this standard but you have to start somewhere.


 
 
Now for my post this is a Christmas card I made last year it was stitched at my craft group. I did intend to send it to someone but  I loved it so much I kept it. I may send it this year who knows
It is very traditional colours and the stitched poinsettia is a lovely Christmas Design.
