This is a quick post to answer a couple of questions and follow up on some requests.

Jenny and Susan asked for close up pics of the trees with the snow hearts. These are the felt ones.

And these are the fabric and felt hearts.

These were made with a free pattern from Bunny Hill designs. They have been remade this year as an ornament. Follow this link to the patterns which are still available. Also go to the blog for a lot of other free patterns.

Susan, you also mentioned the tray of embroideries.

These are a set of embroideries from Lyn Anderson called Sweet Christmas Ornaments. Here’s the link. They come as a set or separately. And there is a wooden button set to go with them.

The larger cushions at the back are a very simple design made using Christmas ribbons.

Next up, hanging solutions for Fiona. Along one wall I have a high window and underneath I can hang wall hangings.

This was a tricky one to start with but we came up with a solution. Little white cup hooks have been screwed into the underneath of the window sill. I have then used small foldback clips to secure the hangings and then hook them onto the cup hooks. The cup hooks are about 15cm (6 ins) apart.

Hope that helps.

I have just finished the last of my polar bears. These ones get to stay with me. So new that I noticed I haven’t even removed some of the pattern markings. Good thing they are staying here so I can clean them up.

Finally a big thank you to some bloggy friends here in Aus for their gorgeous decorations – Shez, Fiona and Michelle. They are adorable. And thanks also Michelle for your ideas about wooden trees. (For hanging decorations)

Okay, back to work. I have a trifle and a pavlova to make. Yum!

Cheers, Karen

    You found a perfect solution to hanging your quilts. I love those wooden trees. I might have to look for them myself here, thanks for passing along that tip!

  • I use a hanging system just like this one above my design wall to hang large pieces. It’s much more of a utility-type idea. I like that you use it to hang decorative things and probably for a longer time.
    Your decorations are stunning and personal. I hadn’t seen the polar bears, adorable. Decorating must be great fun!

  • I enjoy seeing the close up photos, Karen!
