Once I get the binding on, I'll post some pictures. I know I'll be done next week, but the pictures may not get posted. I still have Christmas cards to make.

I looked for material at my quilt shop again and saw nothing that I thought would work. I went to a shop closer to my home and found material for the backing that had the shine that would flatter the gold and poinsettia material. I found material for my border and sashing and now I can't wait to finish this. It will be beautiful!!
My biggest pain from the procedure was from the IV they put in. It left a nasty bruise on my arm (2" x 1-7/8"). Ouch!

I've been so busy on another quilt that I put off working on this block. I think I may have procrastinated on it because I wasn't looking forward to the doubling the triangle to get the 4 diamonds. I should have pressed my seams open for it to lay better. I managed to get it done in time for the Saturday Sampler.

Every year I participate in the Christmas Card Swap on VC Rocks. There weren't as many players this year, but I'm still glad I was able to be a part of it.
Anita Watson made the card above using Calm Christmas and Dictionary stamp sets.
Catie Palmer used Naughty & Nice and That Rotary stamp sets
Elizabeth Kratzer used Ornament Keepsakes. Nice to see the Holiday Framelits used.
The above card is unknown.

I need a do-over on this card. I like it but I'm not too hot on my paper choice. Perhaps if I switched the sides on the DP it would look better. I like the fold and that the tag is secured behind the snowflake, which keeps is closed. I like the Frosted Finishes embellishment. I'm having trouble with thinking of it as a Christmas card because of the color and I'm not fond of the DP on the left.
Stamps: Festive Flurry, Christmas Messages
Ink: Island Indigo
CS: Winter Frost DP, WW, Island Indigo
Misc.: Deco Labels and Festive Furry Framelits, Frosted Finishes embellishments, dimensionals, glue dots.
