And then there were 10!

The postman delivered 2 more of my Brit Bee blocks today, so now I have 10 out of 12 to pet, and enough for me to play with, and see what they are going to look like all together!


Susan sent me some of her lovely tree decorations, including my own stiffy snowflake!!


...and my second Christmas card, designed by one of her talented daughters!

Terri also enclosed some scraps of possibly the cutest Christmas fabrics ever...


Thank you lovely ladies xxx

So, as I was feeling rather happy with my lot, and not bothered by the crappy lighting, I laid them all out quickly before the kids, aka complete chaos, came home...




This is going to be a whopper of a quilt!! 

The other side will have 3 large stars on the diagonal and the siggy blocks made into small stars too.  I am pretty certain that I am not going to have time to get this baby pieced this side of Christmas, but I am really looking forward to it - and believe me, you will get to see every bit of my progress; I am so proud of the BB ladies!
