This year for Christmas, most of the gifts we are giving are handmade, or flea market finds. This was my first Christmas purchase.
I got this in June. Frank was annoyed. I stepped into this fantastic flea market that is less than a mile from my house. We kind of live out in the boonies, so not many people frequent this flea market, including me, because I know I will not be welcome if I trample in there with three kiddos.
So anyway, a hot day in June, after having breakfast out, I told Frank I wanted to stop in to check it out.
"I won't buy anything, I promise"
Ten minutes later, I came out holding this, waving for him to pull the car around, so Anna wouldn't see it.
Oh, I can't wait to see her face. I made matching pillows, and an apron for her to wear while serving tea to her guests. I got the fabric from ebay. It was a patchwork table cloth, and the colors are perfect for her room.
This is my first attempt at a quilt. Something else for my sweet little lady. I used all freshcut fabric. There are a few puckers in the quilting, and I chickened out with the binding and did a ruffle instead.
I am impressed that I have waited this long to give it to her. I am counting down the days!
