Christmas love + giveaway reminders

Hey there, hope you're getting things done and wrapped up. I think we could be onto the hourly countdown by now, if someone cared to check how many hours are left until Christmas. I love the feeling of getting something finished. The satisfaction is too sweet, and the anticipation of starting a new project might be even sweeter! That's why I'm posting pictures of my Cadie's little quilt which I just finished not 10 minutes ago.

I think this is my favorite quilt that I've made so far. The color combination came out just to my liking. And that binding - well let me tell you that the quilt sandwich sat on my table for about a month with me having no inspiration to finish it. Then I saw this brown gingham in my stash and I was all excited to work on it again.

Wanna see who this is for???

This little wild thing  I mean angel who until this (her third) Christmas had to have a generic Christmas stocking from the dollar store. Yes, sad I know.

But I finally made her the most beautiful one in the family (I stole the idea from my friend Chris' fun tutorial). And she loves it so much she wants to carry it around with her wherever we go.

And she's also getting one of these (I posted a link to Hillary Lang's tutorial on BTW, if you want to make bigger mermaidens like I did, see if you can make your printer print the pattern pages out with a ratio of 1:4 (4 sheets for each page). That makes about 16" dolls from head to tails ;).

Okay, that's all the projects I have to show for right now. Don't forget we have two giveaways running right now...

You still have a few more days to enter to win the fabulous book One Yard Wonders 2. (details here)
And just a head's up, when I announce the winner on Monday I'm posting the juicy details of my own personal Q&A session with the authors, Rebecca and Trish. Don't miss it!

And over on we're giving away 2 yards of this delicious Amy Butler cotton print. You don't want to don't miss out on that either!!!

Merry Christmas!
