A gift!

While I was in Houston, I was able to hang out with some people I don't normally have the opportunity to see. One of them, Sue, is from Michigan, and we get together each year in Houston. This year she brought me a beautiful machine-embroidered piece with a Christmas theme — and told me I had to quilt and finish it. LOL! I didn't want to take anything away from her lovely embroidery, so I did some very simple feathers in the white border area and a few straight lines between rows of words just to hold everything together with the backing. Here's the result:


This is going to look so nice on my wall when I decorate for the holidays! Thanks, Sue! :)
