Back is white muslin that shows quilting detail
The mail brought a little package the other day, from an old friend on the west coast. Inside was her Christmas card and this sweet little ornament! Exquisitely detailed, constructed with five different wood species, and the machine has gold metallic thread 'threaded' through a tiny wood tension mechanism and wire thread guides. The ornament is approximately two inches long and a little over an inch tall. Love it!
A closer detail:
Today's agenda includes making a huge batch of pierogi for the holidays, then we really must get out the wrapping paper and ribbons and attack the mound of gifts piling up in the guest room. Time's a'wasting, and we celebrate an early Christmas with my son and DIL and the three youngest grands on Wednesday. The rest of the grands will arrive on Sunday for their Christmas in the country. Busy happy times ahead. To all of my blogging friends I wish a joyous and peaceful Christmas with friends and family.
