It's that time....

Lovely Christmas gifts swishing around in blogland.... well done all of you... and now I have another 12 things to add on to my want to make list....... aaaaaaaahhhhhh ... does it ever end?????

I am continually enthralled at what people make... it is so motivating, and full of ideas and skills .... just so inspiring and lovely....

Anyways.... after all that gushiness .... I have made a couple of Christmas Items to go into Narelle's One Christmas Item a Month.... (except I did two....)

Firstly I made my Chilly Penguin Bag for the SAL....
(which I have shown before - but it is cute and Christmassy so here it is again!)


... and I also finished off quilting and binding this panel picture....


I quilted around the drawings


... some of them you can see quite easily like this little angel....


Thanks Narelle for hosting One Christmas Item per month.... even if we do two....


It's also time to share the North Pole quiltalong block....

Hmmmmmm

well you see .....

I thought I would be clever and plan the rest of the blocks together

I did get one of them ironed down.... but no sewing...


Thanks Val for hosting this Sewalong

... and now we have  ....


Righto, Gotto Go.... a bit of catching up to do today  ...
