and the binding is done!

Christmas Sewing

To me, it has felt like it has taken me forever
 to get the binding hand sewn on these but at last they are finished.

Fabric is "Cherry Christmas" by Aneela Hoey
and the blocks are from the pattern "Vintage Holiday" by Thimble Blossoms

I am keeping one for myself and the other three are gifts.
Miss Lily has already picked who is getting which one.
Now just need to wrap them.

I have also made a start on my Hoop-la-la swap item.

Look familiar?
I have used part of Leanne Beasley's design for the Vignette Mystery Quilt.
Not sure it will be the design I send out but only time will tell there.
Still playing with hoop size too and what will I do with the hexagons?

Also Cheryll is hosting her last two swaps for the year if you would like to come and play along.


Christmas there for the Mini and Summer theme for the Once a Season Swap.

For all the details pop on over here.

Off now to have an argument with my email program :(
It just does not want to to its thing for me this morning.
Might need a coffee first though.

Have a great day,
hugs, Sharon
