Bali Wedding Star

I decided that my project of choice for FNWF would be my
Bali Wedding Star Quilt.

This is another Quiltworx pattern that is all Foundation Pieced.
Mine will finish at 104" Square.
I started my sewing earlier in the day knowing that there would be a break in the evening
 as Declyn was playing Basketball at 8.30pm. 

There are 32 arches in each colour required. 
I have started the "A Units" thus breaking it down to 16 Units of each at the moment. 

Not bad for a days sewing.
I am leaving the trimming to later as we are having another get together in January at my LQS
for the other local ladies working on this project.  I figure I can trim them then instead of taking in my machine.  If you are interested in this pattern I think Nicky still has one (possibly more) left in store and of course she can always order one in for you :o)  (just saying. I'm always happy to enable) :o)

I also got to play Hairdresser to Santa!
This is one of Lily's favorite Ipad games at the moment.
She likes to take photos and save them to the Ipad to show Dad later.

Lily and I also hung her latest Kinder creation.

We really do have Santa watching over us this year.

I also had some "happy mail" of which I had to hide from Lily as I am planning on making this one for Lily and giving to her for her 5th Birthday in March.

Yes my baby girl will be 5 in March. How did that happen?
I now need to try and sneak in some real secret sewing time when she is tucked up in be :o)

If you are interested in the pattern or kit Natalie over at Cinderberry Stitches has them listed in her shop.
I was so pleasantly surprised when I saw that the kit was only $50.

Must go, more sewing to do, Santa Styling to do and of course blogs post to read.
hugs Sharon.
