Some Christmas finishes and FNSI .....

This last year I have been receiving Christmas tree blocks via the Christmas Block Swap and I'm very happy to say that this week I finished off a couple of items I made with them

(I do hope I have got all the names right... please let me know if any of them are wrong)

Thanks to all of you ladies who sent me these fantastic original blocks ... I love them all and these are now decorating my home this Christmas
and thanks to Crafty Pug for hosting this fun block swap

If you are interested in joining just pop in HERE - on the top left is information about the swap and it is open to anyone anywhere ..... you make a block, you get a block - easy as that

I used a felted wool blanket as the wadding
this has made them a lovely weight for the table
and added extra insulation
you will also notice a variety of free motion quilting
couldn't resist practicing different things

Tonight is the last

for the year

you can sign up HERE
I have a LOAD of prep work I want to do
