WIP Wednesday!

Not a whole lot happening here!
Trying to do up a few last minute things before Christmas.
I finished 2 blocks for the Happiness Circle @ do. Good Stitches.
Ursi asked us to make shattered chevron blocks, and  I sure liked doing them.
This quilt will be gorgeous!

*********
I also made a little fabric basket using a tutorial from Elnora on Flickr.
This was so quick to do, just using a dinner plate as a template. It is reversible, so I used two fabrics that I liked!

I rushed the sewing job on the binding, so the next one will be much better.
I plan to use them as hostess gifts, and fill them with chocolates!
Then they can be reused for just about anything!
**********
I tested one more block for Kristy @ quietplay.
No photo, but it's a doozy!
Kristy is planning a paper pieced BOM called "And Sew On" starting in the New Year!
Doesn't that sound like so much fun!
Check out her post here for the details.
*********
Last month I was a host blogger for Blogathon Canada which was sponsored by Sew Sisters Quilt Shop.
They provided amazing prizes to our giveaway winners, and then, surprised the hosts with a wonderful treat of our own!
A t-shirt, a pin, and a nice selection of fabric to add to our stash!
Thank you so much Sew Sisters!
That's all for me this week.
Hope everyone has a great sewing week!
Linking up @ Freshly Pieced.

I've washed this specific [URL=http://www.thenorthfaceforsale.net/#594]the north face coupons[/URL] several times with all my own other clothes and it nevertheless feels soft to the touch since it uses polyester MTR fleece. It's also pill-resistant, which I can back up because my [URL=http://www.thenorthfaceforsale.net/#975]north face pro deal[/URL] still appears great. I put it by way of normal wash cycles as well so really don't be afraid involving giving a wash every once in awhile.BC has over 50 nordic skiing areas and even more opportunities throughout national and provincial parks.
