Cardinals are not actually a bird we have here in the UK, but the pattern is from North America (can't remember if it's Canadian or American - I think the former) and I do love the way cardinals look, so I include it anyway.

Sarah chose this one, remotely. Because they put some decorations up at uni, apparently. Reminded me that I hadn't strung my two little strings of outdoor lights up yet, and I had been planning to. So now, they are up as well!

In this instance, I was the second person to add things to these cards. I then sent them on to another person, who made a final addition and returned them to me and the starter. With these cards I added the measuring tape and the small buttons.
And with theseones, I added a letter brad and a flower brad. The final person put a word/definition across the middle - wonder what words were chosen for C and Q?
This was my choice today - as we put the wreath on the door, I thought the wreath on the advent calendar was a nice addition. If you've not seen my calendar before, you should note that each of the individual squares is about 3.5" - so some of them do have some very tiny pieces. The designs are all paper pieced.

Two sets of cards here, both of which were ones where I made the final addition. The first one needed something to fill that large pink flower, so I went with some words - a fallback option for me.
And this one seemed to call for an apple pie. Kind of an obvious choice, maybe, but it's what the card wanted!

A lot of the older quilts I've been showing, I barely remember even making - especially some of the baby quilts. This one, though, I do remember. I made it for my mother, and she probably even still has it, though I have made her quite a few since then. I do remember there were LOTS of pieces on this one!

These cards, I was the last player to make an addition. The first one was easy - it cried out for poetry, and there was lots of space on the card.
This one was not so easy, as the card was quite full, but I like the addition of a person, and I think they worked well.

Here's one of the two quilts, being put together. (There are lots more blocks in another pile for the other quilt). I have laid out all the feature blocks and am now working on putting them together using blocks made from other shirts. The top section is completely together, but as you can see, there are still many gaps below. Getting there, though!
Here it was before I worked on it yesterday - you can see I made quite a few additions.
