I'm in a new swap, (haha) another one right?! It is the "hand stitched" embroidery swap over at Flickr. This is a sneak peak at what I am doing for my swap partner. Our partners are supposed to be kept a secret until the end, so I can't tell you who I have.
I have finished piecing the top of my "welcome to the north pole" quilt. I still have detail work to do and embellishments to put on. I added 'snow'. Can you see it? The snow is just white Setacolor paint watered down and splattered on with a toothbrush.

Here is a close up of Santa, I've got to add details to him still.

And here is the whole top, with out boards.
We went to the Va State Fair Sunday. I had told you that I won 2nd place in the 'crib size' category. Here I am with my quilt and it's ribbon. The one on the bottom with the chicks on it.
