'Tis the season - I sewed a patchwork Christmas gift, a sofa pillow case for a friend who collects mugs. When I saw this fabric, I knew I had to make something for her.

The original fabric is now the reverse side; the idea for the patchwork front was in my mind very early, since a number of her mugs are displayed on a shelf. I used the traditional "attic window" pattern, slightly changed, to give the illusion of depth. I'm quite pleased with the effect.

No more sewing before Christmas; after the holidays, I will work as quickly as I can on the music wall hanging so that it is finished before we move in a couple of months.
