Advent Sewing

We had our guild Christmas party last week and now I can finally unveil one of the projects I've been working on. A part of our Christmas party is a gift exchange. I made an advent calendar for a gift. Here it is hanging out on the mantle.

A close-up. If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll post a tutorial.

These were the wonderful Christmas presents I received. I don't have a picture of the amazing knitted stocking. It's now hanging out and I've been hinting that it should really be filled for Christmas. :) My present was in the stocking and wrapped in the chicken fabric. Another guild member was doing the best sort of stash busting (for us). She went through her stash and cut fat quarters from her Christmas fabrics and gifted them to us.

When I unwrapped the fabric, I found this wonderful moose and cool ornament. I can now go around the house saying 'the moose is loose'. :)

Last week I wasn't all that thrilled with how block 50 turned out on the Nearly Insane quilt, so I made another one. Yup, I'm that insane, tackling Y seams not once but twice!

I really like your re-do. I liked your first block too though.

Your guild sounds like so much fun. I wish I could join one, unfortunately I work too many hours and all the meetings are during the week. I guess that is another thing I can look forward to when I retire.,
