Finally finished snowflakes

I've been away from the blog for a few days. There's been a bit of the usual seasonal busy- ness, but I have been finishing up a few gifts which I couldn't show. Also, my husband had his gall bladder out on Monday. Wow, how much less invasive they are these days! He had the surgery at around 10:30 and I brought him home around 3:30.

This afternoon I sat down, finished the quilting and added the binding to my snowflake topper. I just have to do the hand stitching on the binding. This piece is for me and I am so happy with it!

I think I may try a couple more pieces using this method. The threads you see are from the needle and thread to stitch the binding. I was so anxious to show it!

Well, I'm ready for Christmas now except for a few little things. My two boys will be home with their partners for several days, so I'm looking forward to some nice family time. I miss my daughter a lot this year. She is in S Korea for the third Christmas in a row. We do have Skype at least.
I'm going to mak myself a tea and finish up the hand stitching.

Holly, your snowflake topper is fabulous!
I hope your husband is OK - it's amazing what is done via keyhole surgery these days!
