Christmas Through The Year

I made a little hexagon zip purse to add to my Christmas gift stash.
I am linking with Anthea, as she hosts CTTY each month. If you would like to see what others made just click Here . Thanks Anthea for hosting again this year.

Also our weekly group of Patchworkers got together Monday night to make some quilts to donate for women in refuge centres. This is what I made out of my stash of fabrics and sent over.   

Happy stitching ....,
