Christmas Quilt Along (February) part deaux

OK, I had a good day!  Not all Christmas related, but things I had to get done today!

So I finished quilting a stack of these into postcards, they are drying at the moment and will be finished off tomorrow ready for posting on Monday.  (deadline day!)  Phew!

I got my Scrappy Mug Rug pieced and quilted, I just have to find the binding fabric and complete it ready for posting on Monday (deadline day!) 

Do you see a theme coming here?

This is the back, the recipient has a thing for Hope Valley fabrics and these tiniest scraps are from some Bees Knees blocks I did last year. 

And then I moved onto Christmas...

I've been playing with the scraps I received from Glen last year, and had a plan ...

I've been playing with the scraps to make bigger chunks of fabrics, but just sticking to greens and blacks, as I found a strip of these in her scraps.  They definitely caught my imagination!

I always saw some of these scraps turned into journal covers...

and I delved into my own scraps for the lining and inside sleeves.  I'm thrilled with how this one turned out, and have some more scraps cut ready for another little notebook along the same lines as this. 

A start to my Christmas planning that's for sure!  Thanks to Sue and Cathi for keeping us all on track and getting ahead on the 'C' word!

My plan for tomorrow? Finish the postcards (trimming and zig zagging, and writing ready to post)
Complete another little journal cover,
Complete the Scrappy Mug Rug and get it all packaged up ready for sending,
and finish my Holiday Hoops quilt from my class at the LQS ( we are back there this Tuesday so I better get it done!) 

Happy Quilting!
