Reminds me of Forrest Gump

Life is like a box of chocolates, or something like that. 
Things have gone rather quiet here at the shop, so while I wait for the odd quilting tourist to pop in I figured I may as well get on with my SAL.  The chocolate box I altered a wee bit, just so that there were more chocolate varieties and the daisy, well... that's just as it was in the book.


Oh well, now they are done I had better toodle off and find one of my many UFO's to keep me busy.  I hope you are having chance for some 'down time' too.
hugs

I agree on having a variety in the chocolates. I love white chocolate and will certainly be including some in my favourite things quilt block.

Love Bears All Things said...

Lovely!
I like the individualism of our blocks. I plan to do my chocolates as a Hershey Bar and include a bear somewhere on this quilt...its My Favorite Things....after all...

LOL, I love the idea of including a bear somewhere and a Hershey Bar. Again, it's that individual thing that makes them all so interesting.
By the way, yes my blocks do look too big and they are, I cut them all to size when I begin to piece and am 'in the accuracy zone'.
Merry Christmas to all my fellow SALers
hugs, Miche'le
