Yeah... A FLimsY

Twas the Night Before Christmas... well perhaps it's a little more than a night... but I now have a finished top for the quilt of the same name.
This was a BOM & I started this quilt many years ago.
I managed the first few months as they arrived...but unfortunately I was called to Canada on a minutes notice and never got back to it once I returned home.
But I love it... & now it's a finished top. I would like to have it up for Christmas 2017...
Can I do it?... who knows... but I will try... after all I have 339 days to do it.

I sewed a few Drawstring Bags at this FNwF.
You can check out my FREE pattern over HeRe.

I will add the bags to Narelle & her group of ELVeS  1 Xmas Item a Month group again this year.
You can too... simply click HeRe.

These "gift or project" bags will be put aside until next December.
Love getting organised... Ho Ho Ho

Thanks Narelle for the encouragement too.

These Four Leaf Drawstring Bags have also been added to my Scrap Busting Challenge... 
as I used 2 x Fat 1/4's for each that I had stashed away.

Getting organised and tidying up last years details...
All the ladies in the 2017 BirthDaY Fat 1/4 CLub should have received their email by now.
If you haven't...please let me know ASAP...
Can you all please check that I have ALL details correct as well...
We have 8 members this year & all details are listed on the page above, on the "header".
All emails have gone out in the Initial Heart Swap for 2017.
We have 20 crafters playing along this year.
I tried my best to make sure that you didn't swap with someone you have already swapped with before ... & some have to mail overseas... sorry but numbers & repeats makes this a necessity... and IF for some reason you are unable to mail to the destination... FOR WHATEVER REASON... please do not hesitate to contact me ASAP.
Remember... please keep your partners name a secret... sshhh...  
as you may or may not be sending to /receiving from the same person... it's a SuRPriSe...
