Welcome to Work in Progress Wednesday #4!

I have been so busy making Christmas presents lately but I really can't show you most of them until after Christmas! I haven't worked on any of my long term WIPs (read: PoD and diamond quilt) but I do have a few small Christmas WIPs I can share though. Both are wall hangings. I have been SO in to wall hangings lately. 

The tree is an original pattern by me! Made entirely out of scraps! I used 1 1/2" strips. I am going to sew on button for ornaments and then do some FMQ.

The olives are adapted from a pattern called Three Eggs that I found on sewhooked.com. I omitted one egg and added the pimiento to make olives instead of eggs. I used all solids to make it really modern.  I am a novice at hand embroidery but I don't think it came out too bad.

That's really all for this edition of WIP Wednesday. Stay tuned next week for the post-Christmas gift reveals.
I hope you all have a very safe and merry holiday, if you celebrate.  If not, enjoy the day off and the cookies!
