Santa came early

A lovely little parcel arrived in the post today.  I didn't know Mr postman delivered on Saturdays, so maybe it was Santa.


And look what treasures it contained, see the cute reindeer pin.

 Not one, but two trees for my Forest, and look closely at the one below.  There is a little sparkly bead at each corner of the patches on the tree and the swirly hand quilting on it.  There was also a cinnamon scented drawer liner sachet in the box.  I feel soooo spoilt.  Thank you Anna

March Block for Rosemary

Hi all,
Now that Rosemary has her block I can post it here. Yah!

Rosemary asked for a any Christmas themed block in traditional colours or holly & berries.
So a star was chosen and I think I got her colour / fabric choice as well.
