Christmas QAL

No it is not December but it is time to think about Christmas and when I read Sharon's post about the QAL that was taking place I was all ears, I love Christmas and this sounded like a real fun challenge, by the way if you haven't visited Sharon's blog you are missing out on a lot, this lady is an inspiration with how much she can accomplish ! Hmm , the challenge is to do a project that uses no green or red but yet it is Christmas, quite a challenge I thought but hey I love a challenge . My plan is to make a runner or perhaps a wall hanging , time will tell but I did get busy yesterday and made my first block but before I get to that if you are interested you will see the new icon on my sidebar right at the top ,just click on that and it will take you to Joanna where you can read all the rules and get started .
This block is called Star of Hope and I found this cute star in Around the Block by Judy Hopkins . It is an 8" block and my plan so far is to make other star blocks to complete my project , should be fun . I am linking up today to Joanna for Christmas QAL  .
Thanks for stopping by and won't you join us in this fun challenge ,come on I know you want to ,lets see what you can come up with .
hugs Sheila
