Christmas Fan....Finished

Whew!
That stitching on the fan ornament sure felt good.

This measures 6" high and 8" wide.
I tried out my new Pfaff machine's decorative stitching on the red ribbon....kinda neat!
It's for a friend of mine....

Now it is back to the Cottage CQ, as I am all refreshed by this old timey stitching.....

***Edit***
In answer to a commentor's question, I did finish this "envelope" style, leaving a gap in the curve. For my second fan I decided to have the gap along the side instead, as the straight edge is easier to turn and whipstitch closed by hand.

This ornament reminds me of the Uncle Harry quilt? I'm assuming the "H" stood for your friend's name though...I have to make an ornament this week for an exchange this weekend with my CQ group...I'm gonna make a skate, I think...
