It's beginning to look a lot.....

............Like Christmas.....
This week I received two lovely surprise envelopes in the mail.
One from Melody and one from Fiona....
Big Hugs to you both I am so chuffed by these, the workmanship in both is just fantastic. You are both such generous and thoughtful blog friends.Thankyou X

My new project for next year will be the Swan Lake (dancing dollies) Quilt. I found that a most talented quilter, Ingrid, is also making this quilt and hers is just magnificent! The blog is called Supergoof and I first found this blog when I was doing the Life is beautiful quilt, check out this version of it. Ingrid makes the most amazing quilts. I am just in awe of her workmanship and if mine is half as good as hers I will be more than a little happy!
Pop over and have a drool  look see. Feeling so inspired just looking at the progress
that is being made.


I'd like to wish all my blog friends a very safe and joyous festive season spent with those you love! Thanks for taking the time to visit and thankyou for your friendship.
hugs....marina
