A few Christmas blocks!!

 There is a Christmas Blog Hop in the works!!  I joined in, and have started making the blocks.  You can read all about it HERE!

  http://lisabongean.com/2015/10/05/christmas-blog-hop/


 Lisa has all the bloggers listed, one block a week.  I am using up some wool scraps, and some felt too. Above is the first block!!
 I think I may change this to a red, shiny nose!!
 A little lamb of Peace...
 Santa, you need a face!!!
And his sleigh as well.  All of these still need stitching and embellishment, but at least I am this far along!!

Above is Cindy C.'s beautiful quilt, for the binding blitz.  She is donating this quilt...isn't it lovely?  Thank you, Cindy, for participating....I took a picture of my screen, because I really wanted to share this beautiful quilt with all of you.





Speaking of the Binding blitz...Congratulations to Debra, of Feathers in my Nest, HERE!  




Her entry was randomly chosen for the winner of the Binding Blitz for this month!!  Now her blog is new to me...but wow!!  Please go over for a peek...Debra is a wonderful quilter, and has such a fun blog!!  I will send you an e-mail, Debra, for your snail mail info.


I want to tell each of you how much I appreciate you, participating in the Binding Blitz!!  It is so very much fun to see all your amazing quilts!!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!!!

Your blocks look wonderful. I have kept a few, will use as single quilts or maybe a small one with mixed pieced blocks.

I wouldn't even allow myself to look at the blocks on that blog hop. Now that I see yours, I admit to having second thoughts. They are so cute! But I.Must.Be.Strong!!

Thanks for your kind words, Julie. And, yes, turn that reindeer into Rudolph! I'm working on an embroidered table runner called "Up, Up, and Away" that features Santa in his sleigh with all nine reindeer -- just like in my childhood memories.
