Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I hope all of you enjoyed a fantastic holiday season with family and friends!  We've had a busy couple of weeks here, but have loved every minute of it!

The December Le Petite parade will be happening over at the Pink Pincushion and A Quilting Life tomorrow.  Be sure to swing by and check out all of the fabulous projects.  This month, our project was Moda Bake Shop's Prairie Point Christmas wall hanging:

After purchasing so much fabric recently (and getting a bit of a light-hearted scolding from my hubby about my growing stash), I was bound and determined to make December's project using only what I had on hand. After some hemming and hawing, I finally chose to use some fabric from one of Debbie Mumm's Christmas lines from a few years back.  I had to use a smaller square for my prairie points so that I didn't run out of fabric, and unfortunately that resulted a very squat tree.

I half-way considered mixing in some other prints and adding some rows to make the tree a little taller and even things out a bit, but it grew on me over the holidays and I decided to leave it as it was.

As always, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's projects tomorrow morning, and I'm hoping to have the rest of my holiday project photos upload to share tomorrow as well.

Hope you have a great New Year's Eve and that your New Year is filled with wonderful family and friends, much happiness, good health, great wine ... and lots of fabric!  HAPPY 2011!!
