One down not sure how many to go

1st Challenge met
Finish Christmas Wishes before the SAL Quilt pattern arrives... DONE
 

I used my leftover threads to complete the picture using DMC, Cottage Garden Threads and Silk colours a little "mishmashed" but I'm using my stash.  The 2 1/2" Squares are Moda Christmas Countdown pack that I have in the shop and decided it's a good as any...not sure if shop stock counts as my stash but I'm using it.......
 
Now to wait impatiently for the pattern to arrive - thinking brights to take me outside my square but really not sure.
