Christmas Quilt Show...

sewcalgal is having a Christmas quilt contest. And I am entering this beautiful one posted here!
It is called "Let it Snow". All the blocks are hand stitched and then sewn together. It is my first attempt at embroidery and I think it turned out pretty good. I am soo happy. Kinda bummed that the true colors don't show through. I think Santa is bringing me a new camera for Christmas.
So pop on over to Sewcalgal and check out all the entries. There are over 100 entered so far. If you want to enter one, you have till tomorrow to do so.
I am also entering this quilt in Paula's Sewing Challenge. This is another great blog that was just brought to my attention! It is so awesome! Thanks Paula!!

I love your stitching. I must get to embroidery on quilts - I do a little but not full pictures like you do.
