Decorations for Christmas

{There's still time to enter my giveaway! Technically it ends tonight, but I'll be out, so you might have until tomorrow morning...}

Polished off three wall hangings/pillow covers this week!

The first is for my mother. It's made with tri-recs - well, the recs part, at least. I have little lights {found in the doll house section of your local craft store} but I'm debating if they're needed.

The Grinch made it in!

20x26", made from 3" finished recs

Second was originally a wall hanging, but thanks to a binding mishap, quickly became a pillow. And I do mean quickly. It is still wet in this picture, and it was still wet when I took it to the gift exchange. Luckily the friend who went home with it is also a crafter, so she understand the inability to make deadlines.

16x16", made from 2" finished HSTs

A wall hanging for my husband's deployment room. There's an PG-13 story that goes with it, but I'll refrain from sharing it. You're welcome.

24x34", made from 2" finished squares

{What? You don't have a WDW monorail as your Christmas tree train?}

And I still haven't made a dent in the Christmas scrap bin.
