Here in sub-tropical Queensland, the last thing we would ever dream of seeing is a White Christmas! We will no doubt be sweltering in the heat and humidity of our Summer season. I love it and I don't ever wish for cold, bleak weather with snow!!!
However, I like to have my unrealistic dreams and I love the traditional look of the celebrations of the northern hemisphere. When I was designing some new ornaments, I couldn't help but place them on a white background and call them "White Christmas"!
I did go a bit non-traditional and chose to use shades of lavender.
I enjoyed using different stitches to enhance these.
A few beads and a bell for the embellishments...
Can't beat the hexagon for shape!
I have placed the pattern for these in my Craftsy Store here.
All three patterns are included for just US $7.50
I have finished my Quilt-As-You-Go Dresden plate quilt, but I am afraid I can't show you it yet!!! I was very happy with the result and enjoyed trying a few new techniques. I will certainly be using these methods again.
Last week I showed you my lovely Cactus. This week quite a few of its offspring flowered and it really did look quite sweet.
Watch out for another free Christmas ornament next week on my blog.
