"The First Noel"......

So, what have I been doing?   Well,  every year I look for  "N O E L" to put on my mantle, and every year I can't find one I like, they're either too bright, too tacky or too expensive!  So this year I decided to make my own.   First of all I looked on the internet to find a font I liked, printed the letters, then enlarged them by 150%.  Then appliqued the letters onto the back ground and Voila!!


I now have my own N O E L !!

Your 'NOEL' is wonderful - your onto something. Think about it, HEART February,then maybe SPRING??? Your beautiful mantle provides a great display area.

This is just darling! Aren't you glad you became a quilter, just so you could have this??

Looks great. Just goes to show that you do not need a pattern if the idea is right there in your head. Lovely work!
PS I notice you have been a lucky winner again!!
