Three of my favorite things, the hairball, pretty fabric, and christmas.
These are the two project ive been working on now and then, the 12 days of christmas fabric has been transformed into a tablecloth because quite frankly its too bloody hot here at christmas, and the bloom quilt has now got its back pinned on with the front and the padding! I think the quilting will be a work in progress, the thing is humungous.

the dog also had a feast on the macadamia nuts left at the back!

I think she is avvoiding eye contact here!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and look forward to your posts, and the beautiful things in our lives

The Christmas quilt/tablecloth is looking great, I like the fabric you have chosen for the back.
Macadamias, she must have jaws of steel.

Great idea making it a table cloth. I hate having to clean my bedroom when I know I want to show off the quilt my aunt made me. On the dining table, the bedroom can stay messy and everyone can enjoy your work.

Love that Christmas quilt/tablecloth! It's beautiful. My dog likes to steal PB sandwiches. :o) Happy FTF!

That's a great-looking quilt/tablecloth! Love those fabrics. Cute dog. Hope the nuts don't give her a tummy ache!

Great idea to make a Christmas tablecloth! I wasnt sure how I felt about the 12 days of Christmas fabric range but your creation has converted me! Lovely. The Bloom quilt is looking good too.

Glad the pooch had a treat.Even if it was stolen!

Thanks for visiting FTF again this week Mrs. A.

It took me a second to figure out that The Hairball means the dog. Cute!

I love your Christmas table cloth/quilt. It is so pretty and the bloom quilt is gorgeous!

Many thanks for your comment on mine. Yes of course you can use the photos for a painting - the sky belongs to everyone! Let me see the painting though won't you?! Love your quilts - I wish I had the patience to do proper patchwork but if you follow my blog you will know that I only really do crazy since it's quick and easy and I don't have to plan it out first! Your dog is lovely too.
