Friends for Christmas ** Finish **

I finally finished this Christmas wall hanging. I started this way back at a Christmas workshop I went to with my mum, but last year I made a concerted effort to finish constructing the blocks. I got it all together and basted in September last year. And there it sat!

I quilted it with an all over pattern of stars and loops. I just love these reindeers! Last week I finally put the finishing touches, or rather threads, to it. So now it is finished and in plenty of time for Christmas! Ha!

But I think this penguin decorating the tree is the best, perching on those parcels.

My little helper was struggling to hold this one still. This was the best snap I got before the arms gave way and she was asking if we were done :)

And here she is peeping above pleading 'are we done?'.

Another check on my finish-along quarter 2 list (here)! Yay me.
