A small gift for a special Friend

Each Christmastime I receive one or two christmas cards that really inspire me, and I now have quite a collection.  This particular little fabric and stitched quilt was inspired by such  a card I received several years ago, and reminds me somewhat of Zentangles.  The design appears to be hand drawn, and filled in with amazing detail, down to drawn lace and small embroidery lazy daisy stitches.  Anyway, my friend Alis was delighted with her little gift, and I would like to share the quilt wth all my blogging friends, to bring you all
Christmas Tidings. 

Here is the inspiration.  Unfortunately I do not know the artist, to be able to give credit where it is due.  I do hope you all have a lovely Christmas, and a very happy, healthy and creative New Year.

What a gorgeous image Val, and your quilt version is stunning. I can see why you were inspired - it cries out to be stitched. Have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I love it very much. It has pride of place in my lounge and will remain up to remind me to hold Christmas in my heart all year. Just like Mr Scrooge ;0)
