A Green Christmas

I was a bit in the Christmas spirit over the weekend, why I'm not sure.  Maybe it's the cool weather we're having.  Tomorrow night the temperature will dip below freezing for the first time this fall.

See if you can spot the four recycled items in the little quilt.  You might have to click on the picture to see them all.  I'm planning to have a photo of this piece printed up for our Christmas cards this year.  Please leave a comment to this post if think you've figured them all out.  The first person to get all four correctly will get a very GREEN prize!

In addition to making this little Christmas quilt over the weekend, I also celebrated (quietly) the end of the second month of my self-imposed challenge.  It's gone by so quickly!  And  I might add, it's been so much easier than I expected.  But these tiny little quilts need to give way to something bigger soon.  

I have three bigger projects rattling around in my brain currently.  One is a larger portrait, one is a 36" round quilt for a guild challenge, and one is a quilt-in-progress that I need to pull out again.

Tomorrow morning, I meeting with a board member for a local gallery, where I've been asked to exhibit some of my quilts during the month of December.  I'll get to see the space and take measurements to decide which pieces to display.  Should be fun!

Zipper, poptops, buttons and some kind of foil or metal for the tree trunk. Beautiful quilt, Judy. Great work.

I think the four are tabs, zippers, buttons and the jewelry in the star. Love the tree, what gallery? lorrie
