FnWFs and some lovely Surprises

Last night it was FnWF’s and it is always nice to stitch along with Cheryll and all the ladies.
I completed a North Pole Block

and worked on this quilt top

I would love to get this it finished quickly to give to a beautiful lady who has Muscular Dystrophy and has now been diagnosed with cancer so she can take it with her when she has treatment.

I didn't do as well as my DD who joined in last night. You can see what she achieved HERE.

Yesterday I received a parcel in the post…

A  beautiful Table runner Teresa made for me in Sue's "Charm Square Table Runner Swap"
