Finally FiNiShEd

Last year I planned, cut out, pieced, appliqued and put this project together fairly quickly. Then I backed it, quilted it and finally put the binding on (I even stitched the sleeve onto the back for hanging) ..... then decided there wasn't enough quilting in the sky or in the snow....so the "village" just sat there looking sad and lonely. So yesterday, I got my quilting gloves on and finally FiNiShEd it.... yehhhh !!!

Santa's North Pole Village
 Now, even though the village has to wait 11 months to go up on my wall...the elves are HaPPy... and sew am I!



from  "Piece O' Cake" designs
 I can almost hear the toys being made.....



I've also made another "Mug Rug" and as you can see.. it's for a valentine's day gift.

I also wanted to share a pic of the beautiful block that I received from Barbara, my January swap partner in BSA. It's just gorgeous and sooo pretty.... I know it will be just WoNdErFuL in a quilt!


Remember my post on the neigbourhood house block party ?? 
well... although I didn't WiN any blocks, Beth (the fabulous organiser)
sent me a small "house" to remember the party we shared.
Here it is... I'll make sure I use it in something special. ThAnKs Beth !

I love your little village - how whimsical. Oh it's still winter - hang it for a little while. Your mug rug and block are nice, too. Seeing a lot of pink this year. Oh your little house reminds me I have one too - hmm better get something done with that.
