It's Christmas A Tableaux, some cards & cake

Hi, I wish you all a Happy Christmas & a wonderful 2016. Hopefully I'll be a better blogger next year. I've posted some of the cards I made for this year. Also I've made a few tableaux for close family, I saw the idea on Pinterest & needed to make them. I already had the die & wasn't sure what to do with it, until I saw the post on Pinterest.
Best wishes to all Annx

Double Bed Quilt

I haven't posted for a while, but have been busy making this quilt for my son, he chose the colours & I found the pattern in America, It's called a Labrynth design & I thought it suitable for a male.
The class I go to is having an exhibition in July & my quilt is going to be included, I must say I'm really pleased, as it's my first big project.
Thanks for looking Ann x
