Today's theme for Photo Finish is Holiday Decor. I made during one of the 2010 Christmas Quilt-a-long days last year for my cousin Giovanna. It took all day. Inset lace, and all kinds of heirloom stuff. It's not what I'd normally make but I made it because it spoke to me about who she was. My husband built a handmade poplar box and lined it with felt to keep it in and then we mailed it off. Boy oh boy did we hear about that, don't do that again - you spent to much to mail it. And so on. But still it warmed my heart because I knew we'd made that for her. She passed away this past summer and I'm glad we made those things and gave them to her and her husband last year.
