I quilted the snow and dark blue tree areas with a large stippling and the light blue bits of Santa with a small loops.

I found this really neat long lead clip on light for £1.99 from a cheap shop and as all my lights for some weird reason are on one side of the room, this will make hand sewing on the sofa so much easier. All in all with the light bulb I spent £2.38... BARGAIN!
I have seen the sewing lights in magazines before and this is definately a cheaper option.

I used felt and some lovely kiddies fabric. I cut a 2.5" piece of felt and a 2" piece of fabric, then another piece of felt and using pinking shears cut out a window. Then I sewed them all together.
There are 48 in total, 2 for each pocket on the advent calendar.

It needs another border on it, then quilting and binding.
Next is an advent calendar I'm making for my niece and nephew, who I'm going to see at the weekend (sorry about the pics, I don't count photography as one of my skills), it has a green border on it an inch wide and needs cream borders around the corners, so it encompassed the corner squares, then I'll be using a fab strippy Christmassy fabric to fill in the gaps on the sides and top and bottom, then each blank space will have a pocket - this is going to be filled with a game from Pretty Patches magazine, like pairs, but using a piece of fabric as the pair part - I'll post it when I've finished it.
I'm going to use seed beads on cotton for the tinsel in the trees - half of one done below and only another thirteen to go.
I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.
