Snappy binding and Xmas decoration

I got a little over half of the binding hand stitched on one of the baby quilts. I think the binding is snappy!

This is the only Xmas decoration I put out. It sits year round on a ledge in the guest room along with other sentimental items. My mother painted this and my Dad wired it. Of all the ceramics my Mom did for me this is my favorite.

Even the backside is beautiful. I have had this for a long time. I forgot to look to see if there was a date on the bottom. Mom died 16 years ago this upcoming January so I would say I have had this for at least 25 years as Mom quit doing ceramics a number of years before she passed.

This weekend's plans are to finish hand stitching the binding on both baby quilts, pin baste a couple more baby quilts, and get a baby quilt started for a friend of my brother. Always something to do! Have a great weekend!

That is the perfect binding for that quilt!

I love that ceramic piece too. I have never seen anything like it.

My Mom did ceramics too when I was young. I love this one that your Mom made!

That village with the moon is so beautiful! My mom did ceramics as well. She won a few first place awards and a best in show once. I am guessing her pieces are gone, the ribbons most certainly are. Like my dog show ribbons.

Now I want to look for that fabric! It makes the most fantastical bindings!
