I entered my first Xmas swap and was given the lovely Maria from Queensland,  This is what I sent her in our swap,
I do hope she like the goodies. 

and in return I was sent the following beautiful gifts which I am so over the moon with, I am a hexi person and Maria didn't know this at the time, so thank you so much.

It was very nice to open the above on Xmas day and see how much work and love was put into the swap, so thank you Maria.

Time to finish the UFO'S

I spend Saturday doing a work shop with the girls from Max and Louise and we had a great time.  Will show photo's when I have finished my project. 

When I got home Saturday afternoon, I decided that it was time to tackle more of the
"UNKNOWN"  quilt by the girls.  I have spent the last two days cutting hexagons' and circles.  There is just to many to tell ha ha ha.  So today its back to putting them together and may be just look at some of the other UFO's that need to be finished.

As I complete these I will post photo's.  Hope you are all have a great day.

Jacob's Ladder Quilt by Magic Patch Quilting

This quilt is one of a few we are currently doing in the Little Quilts Club of 2013 

I just love the colours of this quilt.  This was also my first attempt at quilting at home, so there is lots of room for improvement, but all in all I am very happy with this lap quilt. 

Now to find a place to put it on display at home.
