Take 2

The wall hanging  is called Emma's Tree. I got the pattern and the story from another group I am on.  Emma passed away aged 29 from breast cancer her mother made this tree while Emma was having her treatment for her 2 little girls (aged 5 and 6 this year).  Miriam is allowing anyone to make this tree as long as they put Emma's story on the label.  I have the pattern and Emma's story if you would like to make one and Miriam's permission to pass it on to quilters in Australia.
The Christmas Stars are the ones I won in last years VicScquilters Carrum Downs Christmas raffle, I finished the top on Tuesday the day before our Christmas lunch I hope to have it quilted before Christmas Day but the way the hours are flying by I think thats a pipe dream

First for December

This week is Christmas things the blue angel block is for VicScq Carrum Downs Angel swap and the Jester Bag is one of 2 I have made to put little gifts in.   The red and white box is another one for gifts it is an easy one to do as it is 2 x 12 1/2' square blocks and a 11 3/4' square of medium cardboard.  The red angel is the 2nd block I did to put in the swap.  I have another top finished have to photograph it yet so another flaunt later.
