1 Xmas Item a Month, QAL BLocks 9-12.

It is time for 1 Xmas Item a Month hosted by Narelle over at pinsandwhiskers. You can click on the link in my sidebar to see what other people have been making. My finish for this month is a Christmas mug rug/ candle mat.  Not sure how I will use it as yet so keeping my options open.
A big thank you to Narelle for hosting.
I  have also finished Blocks 9,10,11 and 12 of my Aiming for Accuracy QAL.
Block 9

Block 10.

Love this fabric.
Block 11, centre squares have small birds surrounded by flowers.

Block 12, the bottom row. I have done some fussy cutting in some of the nine patches. See below. 

Starting to look really nice now. I have the blocks laid out on the floor in my sewing room for the moment but am running out of space as the top is getting quite big.
Chris and I went to a hot rod show at Beenleigh on Sunday. It was lovely to spend time together doing something we both enjoy.
This car caught our eye. Looks like red is still the favourite colour for our new car.
Well must go as it is getting late. Hope everyone is enjoying the school holidays.  Hugs..........
