In the Bag

All ready to fly off to their destination - I wonder what we will get back??? You want to know what's in the Bag??? Santa blocks for the Holly Jolly Block swap - we are in the bright non traditional group and I had lots of fun playing with colours, Christmas doesn't have to be all red and green? One of the blocks up close - simple stitchery design from the talented Joy over at Joypatch.
and all 12 of the blocks together - an interesting mix of colours - a good opportunity to use up some of my stash.
The second roll contains the blocks for the Its a Hoot block swap over at Pin and Needles, this swap hasn't closed yet so if you are interested in getting in on the action hop on over and check out the details. (The button on my sidebar will take you there.)
A close up of one of the blocks I made
And the 6 themed blocks I made for this swap.
Jindi's mum and I entered both of these swaps as a team - half the work means we each get half the blocks back - but we decided 6 themed and 6 - 9 patch blocks would be enough - they are 12inch square finished.
Enjoy some stitching time this weekend.
Happy Crafting

The borders around the owl blocks look good. It will be fun getting a selection of the other participants blocks to play with.
