I'm a wife and mother of three and step-mom of two. I have a master's degree in international relations. I live in Alabama, but have always wanted to move out of the south. I love the West and New England, so I travel there as often as I can.
There were a couple of my Christmas blocks for our guild Christmas sampler that needed some embellishments. My original plan was to add buttons and beads after it was quilted, but I decided that I didn't want to wrestle with that. I decided to add applique and embroidery instead. Here are the finished blocks. (Original pics can be found here and here.) The Santa looks sooo much better with eyes. The snowman looks about the same because I had basted on buttons and beads in the original picture.
