Christmas Stitching

As of Friday this was my mothers Christmas present alot of cut oblongs I have been wanting to stitch her a lap quilt for a while I have left it a bit late to complete it by Christmas but over the weekend I managed to assemble the quilt top all I have to do is sandwich it together and quilt it, but I think it will have to wait till after Christmas when I have some days off as I am working Christmas.
I took part in 2 exchanges this one is the HOE Christmas Ornament which I received from Natasha B it is a lovely Hardanger Ornament and it is beautifully finished.I will have to find the photo of what I stitched for her.
I did a private exchange with Raffaella as I had already been her partner twice this year she did this wonderful Snowman from Lizzie Kate

even the back is wonderful it will make a beautiful addition to my tree.
