Gold

That's what I have been stitching!  Five pretty gold rings.  Two of them need a few large Mill Hill Treasures that I should be getting soon.  Now to finish up the right -hand side ribbon and the banner on the bottom.



And look who it is!  A bit early for the year....here is my Flying Santa block from the Friends for Christmas quilt by Lynnette Anderson.  This quilt has more of a "folk art" appearance than most of the quilt projects I am working on right now.  I did receive the second block, which is the large pengin with the skinny Christmas tree with presents.

As for Santa: he is just gorgeous! Love your choice of fabrics for this new project.
