Ho Ho Ho

I finished putting the pockets on, did a little quilting then added the bright binding onto this Advent Calendar. My SIL's friend asked me to complete it for her... so it will go back with my bro & sil who are visiting at the moment.
It's only a panel but it looks really great & will make a small persons eyes light up when filled with chockies I'm sure. Not long before the 1st pocket can be opened!

While I was in Victoria I picked up a few books too. 3 by Nancy Halvorsen & 1 by Lori Holt.
Both Shez & I purchased some of Nancy's fabrics too... woo hoo...

What have you got planned for today?
I'm finishing off the last secret gift for a swap partner.
