December Schnibble...better late than never

Well, it isn't really late. I got it done before the first and that is what counts :) I love Mill House Inn. So here are my two little Tuffets on the tree.

 The strip pieced one is also pieced a bit I thought it would be fun to add a couple scraps from the nine patch.

Woo Hoo! Thank you Santa!

I won my wish from Santa (AKA the Fat Quarter Shop) I am so happy! I can't believe it! I have never won one of these blog giveaways before! I really didn't think I would be able to get this fabric... we haven't had a lot of extra money lately so it was going to have to wait... a while anyway... This is a big Merry Christmas for me!

3 Giveaways... number one...Amy Butler pattern and fabric

In the spirit of Giveaway day at Sew Mama Sew ... and because I have been wanting to do another giveaway... I am having a three part give away... These giveaways will be open until midnight December 9th... all you have to do is make a comment on the one you would like to win. I am posting them in seperate posts to make it easier. I will be happy to send international but it will have to be the least expensive way and I will not be responsible for loss.

First:

An Amy Butler bag pattern (Brand New) and enough fabric for the exterior and handles... you supply notions and lining... The fabric is the same as in the picture on the cover but in a different color way (Nickel) I think it is a little more neutral to match more outfits :)
