Last 2012 Project

In my main patchwork group (LT for short) each year we either give some fabric or make a block for everyone's birthday.  In 2010 we each made "happy blocks" and I chose blue & silver Christmas themes.  I was able to make them into this:  (with a couple of additional blocks). 

At the same time I collected some extra strips and squares to make into coasters.  Finally, I have finished a set to match.

That's my last SIF project for 2012.

I have found it wonderfully encouraging that Dawn & Wendy give us a little "surprise" if we get a project done and I really hope they can continue on with a similar theme.  It really made me push myself to do one a month - though I have to admit that if I had somehow managed two in a month I would have kept one up my sleeve - in case.

So, a big thanks to Dawn & Wendy

and a Happy New Year to all SIF bloggers!
May it be happy & healthy and full of Finishes!!!
