A Christmas finish!

 Yeeeyyyyy!!!! Two more finishes, and I am running out of UFO's....  First off is my "Roly Poly Santas" from the very talented Gail Pan! This was also started in September when Gail and Leanne were in Trondheim. 

I haven't decided whether to keep it or add it to my Christmaspresent box..... I think it will be a great Christmaspresent, so it will go in the box for now.... I can always make another one for myself, right?
And here I am in my first Barcelona Skirt. Pattern by Amy Butler.  I can see more of these in my future- it is very easy to sew, and really comfortable to wear.
There are two quilt tops left on the banister now.  One just needs to be quilted (the FQS mystery designer bom from last year), and I think I will send it away for quilting.  The other one is a little smaller, and I need to get some more fabrics for the border and backing. 
Thanks for stopping by!
