A week or two ago, when I was going through my drawer of Christmas fabrics, looking for pieces for the rest of my postcards, I came across these - a baggie full of little Christmas blocks, approximately 3 inches square (some a little larger) , all with a simple Christmassy or wintery centre, then a suitable border fabric. Many of them aren't very square. These have been around for absolutely ages - and there used to be a lot more of them - I made ornaments from them one year quite a while ago now (5 years at least). Anyway. There are 128 of them, so I have divided them into 4 sets of 32 each, more or less evenly split among the various border designs (some of the border fabric was used for 8-10 squares, some for only one - I think some of those borders came from a set of Christmas charms, which is probably why there are only one of some design).
Anyway, as usual, if you are interested in owning some of these lovelies, leave a comment here before Sunday - I (or more likely one or more children) will choose four names on Sunday. And here I thought I'd found everything when I did my big sewing-room clearout! (I didn't actually go through the drawer of Christmas fabrics during that clearout, just noted that it was a drawer of Christmas fabrics....)
