It was pin basted and I needed the pins to baste my December UFO Challenge project so I thought I better get it done. The candy cane stripe binding has a bit of a Christmasy look to it too, so I enjoyed working on it with Christmas music playing.
I didn't have a piece large enough for backing, so I pieced together what I had -- more Christmas charm with the red and green.
And here's a little memory from a Christmas past. That was a year I got my first pair of figure skates and no longer had to use the black hand me down skates from my brothers. I'm pretty sure I had peeked and knew just what was in the box -- and I probably had a pretty good idea of who was behind that white beard.
