So Close

I have sewn together the blocks for my
Merry Merry Snowman Quilt.

Fingers Crossed that the border fabrics will be here next week
so I can finish it off and have it up on the wall this Christmas.
"So Close" to a finish.
Have a look at how much fabric I have left over to play with :)

As you can see the FQ Shop are very generous with the fabric in their BOM's
The fabric still in the bags is from the monthly instalments that I haven't touched
and I managed to piece two months without opening that months fabrics.
I am so looking forward to playing with these scraps :o)
12" Mini Club - Christmas Edition
I have finished off the Mini that I have made for my Secret Partner in the
12" Mini Club Swap.  I like to have my Christmas Decorations go up 6 weeks before
Christmas (roll on Tuesday. I have got the tree out of the shed and it is sitting,
 waiting for my attention) so in case my partner does the same
I have mailed it off to her this week.
Are you in this swap?
Could this be for you?
 allow me to say a huge
"Happy Birthday Glenn"

We had fun decorating the cake.
Just as well he is not scared off by pink :)

Hugs, Sharon
