Hi there fellow Christmas Block Swappers, it is time to announce the recipients of our Christmas Birthday Celebrations prizes.

The Christmas Beetle originally opened its doors on 17th August 2011 after years of dreaming and planning. The business went through a few changes and is currently trading as an online store bringing the essence and spirit of Christmas to everyone.  

The prize is 5 fat quarters of French general Esprit De Noel and a pattern from Lisa Cantlay with a Christmas theme for the lucky winner.

Now for the lucky follower ............
A little prize will go to Traci for being an active follower of the blog - here is a tease ;-)


The winners were chosen by Random Org on Sunday morning, 13th October 2013 (Aussie time).  I noted there were 15 swappers who left a comment and the main prize was drawn from that list.

She had requested a 'Log-Cabin' block with red on one side green's on the other and a yellow center!
Here it is.... I so hope she likes it.
Hope it will arrive soon, after all my happiness is getting it done as I knew I was going to be 'busy'...
