North Pole and Other Bits

I have made a little progress on the QAL "Welcome to the North Pole" I'm doing with Val and the others.
Still appliqueing Block 2 from last month "Elves Recreation Centre" but getting there.
Not sure why this photo hasn't printed properly and can't fix it, but I couldn't wait to prepare this next  block "Sprinkles Ice Cream Shoppe"  - how cute a name is that?  Thought I was very clever (and not that you can see it), but tea-dyed some waffle weave fabric for the house/cone.  Thanks Val for the motivation to keep going on this lovely quilt - am enjoying it.

I posted these very bright parcels off to somewhere in Australia today as part of Cheryll"s Color Swap. Such a great swap - loved doing this one, and have enjoyed seeing all the lovely goodies people have been receiving and sending.




I have a taker for these -
 Would anyone be interested in swapping this pack with me - it's a Sue Daley pack called "This Goes with That", and comes with all templates and paper pieces required to make it. The cost was 60 something dollars, and I then saw it on TheQuilted Crow website as a bom, complete with lovely vintage/reproduction fabrics, which I signed up for, and so didn't need this pack. Would be happy to swap it for a pattern and a fat quarter, or three fat quarters.

Hi Cheryl, thought I had better pop in & see what you are working on, have not visited for a while...
These quilt blocks look great, & the green-wrapped parcels are so pretty, it's been a fun swap, huh?!
Good luck finding some to swap the paper pieces with, I am tempted but have plenty already, someone will want them I'm sure x
