December block finished!

This is the centre “medallion” block for my Debbie Mumm’s Christmas BOM.

So now I have started to place the blocks as per pattern:

I think that the colours are starting to mesh.  I have the borders to put on; three of them and I am thinking about embroidering the names of the blocks on the brown separator blocks.

I am officially taking an internet break but I wanted to post this before the end of December; now onto the finishing!

What a day!

My backyard this morning.

The view from the front.

So calm.

I had a quilt guild meeting which was a lot of fun, learned a few crafts.

When I came home I found this in my mailbox:

A parcel from my Snickerdoodle Crafty Goodness partner, Ann-Margret (from Norway). Thank you so much Ann-Margret.  I already ate a piece of chocolate and opened and examined the neat stitchery pattern, she designs her own! The scrapbooking beads, lace and epherma (sp) are so beautiful! The card is exquisite.  I just love it all! Oh and the pastel fat quarters! Hmmm…what project waits me.  The stamp is neat.  I have some ink and Valentine’s day is just around the corner!  I hope that you get my package soon!

Well, I am off to bed, so tired! Later

Sticheries in the mail!

Oh the angels we meet in blogland.  Diane is my angel and she sent me a pattern that I so admired on her site:

I cannot reveal what it is because of Christmas being so close, but don’t you love the material she sent along? And the package had’t been open for 15 minutes and I started on the stitchery! So cute and so fun.  Thanks so much Diane.  I really appreciate.  I have even gone to the pattern site and goggled all the neat patterns!

And I received some little squares from ebay:

I have no idea what I am going to do with them but they sure are cute.

Well, off to stitch.  Tomorrow is our Christmas guild meeting with workshops and fun! Hopefully I won’t be shy and I will take some pictures.
