Not one but two finishes :-)

It was a nasty evening so I sat down and did some hand sewing to finish up my little welcome wall hanging as welll as the binding on the Christmas table topper and managed to finish both ,yippeeeeeee.....
My Welcome sign is now hanging in my entry and looks so cute . I added tabs to the top since there was enough fabric left over in the kit and I like that effect.
The tablet topper I should have taken the time to press but I wanted to share this finish and I have a busy morning ahead of me.
I just quilted around the leaves and berries , maybe before Christmas rolls around again I will have enough FM experience to feel confident enough to do some FM in the outer section , wish me luck with that.
Our weather last night produced some lovely ice to contend with , we had a mixture of snow that quickly changed to ice pellets then rain so a sloppy mess and it will change back to -8 by this evening .Ice I am nervous of so will stay put until this afternoon when it should melt some .
Enjoy your day and thanks for the visit.
