My OwN BOM

I have been kept busy with lots of "other" things this week... but I am still managing to do a little sewing. I am trying to do at least a block a month on my "The Night Before Christmas" quilt by Bunny Hill and finished block #2 "the stockings were hung" this week.

There's a lot of sorting, measuring, cutting, piecing, placing, adhering & more stitching in this 20' x 14' block.
Then add on some embroidery... & TaDah!

I just LoVe the colours used in this quilt and am looking forward to having it this Christmas.

I am also working on my Monthly Make for February. It should be finished any day now. Here's a peek.

I'm passing on this beautiful card I received on behalf of... drum roll please...
ALL the 2011 Angels...
a THANK YOU from the John Hunter Hospital.



Kaye (my secret partner in the Initial Heart Swap) sent this beautiful gift.
Technically NOT a heart... but it has "hearts" on it... AND... 
Kaye was worried that I wouldn't like it and I don't...  I  LOVE  it !   
Thanks Kaye!



See you ALL at Friday Night Sew In - TONIGHT. 
Go HERE to sign up and play along with us!
