Spoiled Rotten

My SSCS partner Dawnie has well and truly spoiled me.

Her gifts are amazing.  Two wonderful Christmas stitcheries to help the Yuletide spirit along each year.  The bag (to feed my bag fetish) is amazing.  I took the picture of the end, I'm not sure if you can see it, but there is a cute little sewing machine attached.  I love all the little details she's added to all of her work like little tags, pulls, and back pockets.  (I tried to take a picture, but it failed miserably)  Plus, new projects to drool over.  An adorable hatched and patched bookmark kit and a magazine with wonderful projects.  

I absolutely love everything!

Guild block of the month

I've posted a few of these blocks in the past.  My guild has been doing a block of the month these past 15 months.  We've each had a turn to pick a 12" finished block for everyone to complete and then each month we made that block for ourselves.  

I'm a fan of blue. :)  For my blocks I chose to work out of my stash.  Here are my last three blocks.

And here are all the finished blocks!

I really love how they've turned out.  Plus, it's going to be wonderful to see how different they've all turned out.  My friend is showing her finished blocks here, can you even tell that they're the same blocks!?
