Xin Nian Kuai Le! In other words, Happy New Year. I'm about a week late in posting this for Chinese New Year.

Come to think of it, I haven't celebrated Chinese New Year since my college days, when I studied Chinese. But this banner has been rolling around in my brain for a couple of years and I thought I'd better just make it already. Maybe someday I'll make myself one, but this version is destined for my sil, L. [I'll give it to you in person . . .]

Xin = New

Nian = Year
Kuai Le = Happy
Instead of freehanding the characters, I copy and pasted from the internet, enlarged and printed them, then traced with chalk onto regular black felt. I then pinned all those tiny pieces down and zigzagged around the edges.


  1. CUTE! and all that applique. wow. you're a much better SIL than me. MUCH better.

    HA! and my word verification is "broism". Apparently I don't have sufficient bro-ism to be a good SIL to my BIL.

  2. I love chinese new year, so I think that is great that you celebrate!


Sorry to add word verification. Too much spam lately....
