I am still plodding along with my Last Minute Christmas Sampler QAL blocks.
- block 8 - Candles, Julianna actually gave us two versions of the pattern, I opted for the advanced with all the fussy cut piecing around the flame.
- block 9 - Reindeer - there were a lot of pieces to put together in this block. Luckily I had the perfect backing fabric to use for it.
- block 10 - Nutcracker - I debated long and hard over my fabric choices for the nutcracker. In the end, I pulled one of our nutcracker decorations off the tree and used it as inspiration. I made a couple of changes to the pattern namely omitting the candy cane, and utilised some fussy cut pieces of fabric for the jacket front and belt. My son has said that I have made it in the colours of the Chiefs rugby team .
Luckily I am up to date now, ready for the next pattern to be released tonight, though I am not sure how much sewing I will get done this weekend. My sister and her family arrive from Brisbane on Saturday night, and she and I have a day out together on Sunday.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend.
