Though I showed this as a WIP, I thought I'd sahre it finished and washed. The big girl in our house liked it. Setting the charms on their pretty diamond points was a fun new experience for me. I would definitely make another like it. Hope you are keeping cozy. We're still in the Northwoods of Wisconsin and so glad we'll see the temperature rise above zero. Now the kiddos can get outside to sled and play in the snow.

Made from all kinds of things I had on hand, I love how this turned out. It is perfect for winter--bright and sunny when our weather is gray. The linen sashing and white blocks really make the colors dance. Hope you're having fun with some relaxing projects.
