Another Advent Calendar ...

Oh my goodness how does a month go so quickly?!!  Well I do know the answer to that - illness and Christmas!
 
So I realise that I have a few things I still need to post about for the FAL Q4 before the linky party goes up over at On the Windy Side so here's hoping for a post a day!
 
I have already posted about the first Advent Calendar I finished but there was another one for my other daughter.  The weather yesterday was beautiful so I managed to get some good shots outside.  Of course all the pockets are now empty!

 
I freehand guided the quilting and was really please with the result.  Some lovely holly leaves in the night sky!

 
Straight lines without ruler work - I actually found it easier to do without a ruler but these are simples shapes.


I wasn't that keen on the fabric for the binding but at tea time on 30 November you have to go with what you got.  My daughter chose this one so who am I to argue.


When I finished this was the last time I felt up to speed with things.  Three of us caught the flu which wiped us out for a fortnight and then Christmas came ..........  Slowly catching up and have even started some new projects, because you always need more projects on the go don't you? x
 
Going to link up with Lorna over at Sew Fresh Quilts for her Let's Bee Social.

  4. Christmas was a whirlwind in our house. Seems I blinked and it was over. What a beautiful advent calendar you've made. Visiting as part of the 2015 FAL Cheerleading Team. Thanks for participating.
