What are you most proud of? Being able to give something original and unique to my best friends and my family that they can keep from year to year (if they want to). It's difficult to know when to stop when embellishing with beads, sequins, braid etc, and I have to try not to go over the top, although I don't really suppose it would matter much if I did "gild the lily" too much - they are festive decorations, after all! I was particularly pleased to find some ribbon in a cake decoration shop with "Merry Christmas" printed on it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Let your imagination run riot. I intend to abandon Christmas trees now, and go on to to make other pictures - perhaps snowmen, bells, candles - there's no limit to what can be done. After last Christmas a friend's son loved the Christmas one I made for his Mum and asked me to make one of these little quilts with an owl on it - a photo of it is among my projects.
