Christmas item Half finish?

I didn't have a lot of time for Christmas finishing this month but I did get a wriggle on with my second Tis the season quilt this week. It only has nine of the blocks this time.
I managed to get the fabrics cut for the borders and the machine out during the week to get the borders sewn on.
I hope to get them together over the weekend...I know not technically a finish but it is pretty close by  my reckoning. My stitchery last post could also count as a semi finish.

I received my swap partner for the 2011 Friends swap....
It is Peta from Western Australia. Her blog is lovely. She has some lovely things that she has made on her blog.
Now to get my thinking hat on to work out what to make for her.
There maybe some sneek peeks?

I am impressed that this is your second one! They are really gorgeous stitcheries. I need to get a wriggle on with mine.

It qualifies for sure! Each block is a finish on it's own. You have just gone past Christmas 2011 and are heading for 2012. It is a really lovely project and your blocks look great.
Your swap partner is very talented and are going to be one lucky swapper.
