Christmas block sent and recieved

It was lovely to get home today and find that Cathy's Christmas block had arrived in the mail.  I can see why you agonised over this Cathy, you did a simply superb job.  I absolutely love it, and especially the little felt poinsettia that you put in the centre - very sweet. 

Thank you soo much x

Cathys star for me

Marys star

I also made a Christmas star for Mary in Canada - A simple twist on the Ohio star block with a fussy cut reindeer centre.  It will be popped in the post tomorrow.

thanks Sue - I can't take credit for cutting the poinsettia - it was an embellishment I had for making cards and thought it would go well in the centre of the star. I rarely hand sew anything so I am very glad you like it LOL
Love the fabric you have chosen for Mary's block - very bright and cheery ;-)
