Give-Away Day!

I've decided to participate in the Sew, Mama, Sew December 3rd Give-Away day, despite the million other projects I should be working on for the holidays. You can check out the master list of participants here. Hope I can find time to make the rounds later today!

I'll be giving away a mini quilt (about 6"x6"), along with some Finnish holiday chocolate.

Just comment on this post by tomorrow (Thursday December 4th) 8pm Finnish time (GMT+2) and I'll choose a name randomly. Be sure to include your favorite color in your comment!

I have some crafty things to post, but will save those for tomorrow. In the meantime, here are just a few photos from my recent trip to France!
