Holiday Collection

Earlier in  the week I made this green/red/gold tri-colored apron.  It was made with people who like a little sparkle to their holiday in mind. The green fabric was purchased at the local fabric stores during their holiday clearance sale at the end of last year.  I had several gold fabrics in my stash but since the green print is metallic I thought it would be nice to set it off with the gold sparkle.  Reds are always hard to match but the subtle swirl in the red fabric attracted me and it was also the right tone - not too loud, not to soft. 

I have been looking forward to working with this tree fabric which is from Laurel Burch's Bountiful Blessings collection since I purchased it in January.  First I made a tri-colored apron and then from the scraps, adding a few odds and ends from my stash, I made 3 balsam pillows and a hot pad.  My husband and I are off this weekend to visit my Dad.  The sun is dancing though the fall foliage, should be a beautiful trip!
