Final Christmas Sewing Pt 4

Technically not christmas sewing but I have been working on Butterfly Garden the past few weeks. I did this as a BOM throughHoneysuckle Cottage last year (2008) but only partially completed the first block and cut out the second block. At the time I was undecided as to my applique method for this quilt and other projects took over so this beautiful quilt took a back seat; until this year. It will be finished 2010!

Love the little butterflys that are scattered about the quilt.

Block one complete.
Block two, need some more stitchery done.

Block three, only a little more stitchery to go.

Have a lovely christmas everyone;
I will back in the next few days to share what I was sent and what I sent for the two christmas swaps I was in; also the swap 'Jessie Girl' was in with some other Aussies around her age.

Your project is looking good. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Santa was kind to the children. I hope he also brought you some much needed gentle soaking rain.
