Christmas Swap 2017
Erica was my sender for this little one off swap 
minus the gingerbread man cookie, not sure what happened to him, 
maybe eaten before the photo was taken?
Thanks Sandi for organising this one, lots of fun.

The swaps have come to an end (insert unsmiley face) but thanks girls they were loads of fun!
Now we are going to be a No Fuss Stitch Along....yay!]
It's called Ruths Quilt by Leanne Beasley in her book Living The Dream
You MUST have the book for the patterns to do the stitchalong...
check your library (home), friends who might have it or FB groups, there might be someone willing to part with their copy. 
Aim is 3 stitcheries per month, first ones due September, 
last ones in September 2018 and 
hopefully all put together by December 2018...
Happy Quilting everyone!
