The pillows were also done a few years ago and I bring them out every Christmas. I just pop them over pillows already on the couches after a pressing. The Noel pillow pattern was taken from the pattern series called Christmas Memories, possibly by Blackbird Designs. I know there were 4 small booklets of 3-4 patterns each, and all together you would be able to make a lovely quilt pattern, but I think the store I bought them from only had 2 or 3 of the 4, but I had to have them. Such a shame I stumbled on them too late, but I love what I did with the patterns I had.
The Tree of Life mantle scarf is also an older project- you can probably tell by the fabric lines. Robyn Pandolph fabrics, I think. Such lovely fabrics. For someone who hates precision piecing (because I'm lousy at points), I have to say I'm pleased with the way this turned out. While I'm being pleased with myself, I attached all those slate tiles to the wall after "the crash". Seriously - there were ugly 1/4 inch bricks attached to the wall that ....just....fell off one day. So, rather than reglue the ugliness, I too the opportunity to modernize. The whole house can fall down now and I guarantee the only thing standing together will be these tiles - there's that much glue on them.
Last but not least, a cross stitch I did over a decade ago from a project taken from a cross stitch magazine. Shortly after completing this, I got the crazy idea that a Lavender and Lace Celtic Christmasr design would be a great idea. The beautiful lady in the red dress lies wound on her stretcher frame, possibly for all time, only barely started. I did do some of the little angel ornaments, so figured a big project would be possible. Clearly, I was fooling myself. Please don't tell my friend Ray, from work, about my abysmal photography skills. He'd cry. He's an incredibly talented photographer.
