Christmas Wreath blocks

Hey, there! So these past few days have been crazy busy with work, sewing, and the cold weather starting to set! But I am happy to say I've gotten the last three blocks done for my Christmas Wreath swap through Mary Jane's website!! That makes 12 blocks.
Here they are:

I am really happy with how they turned out, and both my daughter and I really like the penguin one! It was a fun fabric because the penguin bodies were silver and shimmery, almost like a gel pen.
 In other news, we had our first snow last week, and it has been freezing overnight. Not fun for the animals! My daughter wrapped the chicken coop with a weather-plastic to insulate it, and the geese and ducks were very happy! They talked to her the whole time she was there.

I have been working with some ladies I know to organize craft days and fun things to do as well.I think it'd be really great to get some events going during the winter, especially, that got people who enjoyed crafts and get-togethers out and about, instead of sitting home all winter. Quilting bees, knitting club, sewing days; all these are fun ways to make friends!
That's all for now folks! Stay warm with hot apple cider and cocoa!


  1. The penguin one is my fave also. Poor animals. I bet they are nice and warm now. I'm your newest follower. Would love for you to stop by and link up to More the Merrier Monday.

  2. Oh, I love these? Where can I get the instructions? I've recently started a craft group with my church ladies...it's called "Ladies of all Ages Craft and Sewing Group"! Believe me, there are more words in that than there are people (very small church!). And the ages go from 12 to...well, 64 (that's me). But what fun! Best of luck with yours!
