Merry Christmas

Finished my Christmas Tree Pants sew along hosted by Monica at the Happy Zombie.  I used Kona natural and red linen.


Outlined all my stars with some vintage cotton ric-rac that I have a lifetime supply of (thanks to my sweet Mama), hand stitched every peak and valley cause I didn’t want it to curl and I’m anal like that …lol  also added a border.


Hand quilted with red perle.


I made two new red linen table cloths, a natural runner and 15 napkins in a Denyse Schmidt print.  Now I just need to add dishes, cook and bake  and I’ll be ready for Christmas Eve dinner! I wish Christmas was a couple more weeks away so I could enjoy the anticipation a little longer….. I surprised myself at how much I like my table arrangement, I’m really happy with it.  Inspired by this pin.


Linking up to Amanda Jean’s Finish it up Friday

Merry Christmas



  1. Wow Shawn -- that's absolutely gorgeous! I LOVE it! Did you use it under your tree this year? I LOVE the big stitches and the ricrac -- very, very clever!!!

  2. That is amazing, Shawn! I can't believe you stitched all that down by hand! What a keepsake :) I think that will be a special tree-pants always.
