CQJP 2012, December block

This is the last block of my Crazy Quilt Year Project 2012.
It says Christmas but also mourning.
Black and silver-grey fabrics and beads.
I have used some vintage buttons which I got from a friend this month. Also the silver and red leaves were in the same gift.
The huge snowflake is a piece of bobbin lace which I have made many years ago.
It is made from linen thread.
 The block is 20 x 20 cm. Now I have to make the fabric book of the twelve blocks.
I like to wish you all a very nice new years eve.

CQJP 2012 November

 Here is my CQJP block for the November month. In November we always set up a bird house and a tree branch on the veranda fench. When there was a bit snow at the end of October the birds came and looked if the food was there. So I took the tools my DH always used to set up this and a few minutes later the birds came.
