Occupy Results (Spoiler Alert for Marta!)

My "Occupy Your Sewing Room" results are fewer than planned but I did manage to finish my December block for Let's Bee Together swap...EARLY!  Honestly, how could I go wrong with this beautiful Christmas fabric Marta sent us? 
She requested a star block and I found this one called High Tea
from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 3.
It was actually a little tougher going together than
I thought it would be but I'm happy with the results.
Thanks to Cat Patches and her creative idea that helped get me focused,

Now, here's what I did when I wasn't occupying my sewing room:
I single handedly carried my the tree up the apartment stairs!
My dad offered to help, but I had to remind him
I am WOMAN, hear me....(some of you will be able to fill in the blank)   ; )

Here's how it turned out.
My favorite part is the star!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Now I'm off to finish the decorating!
P.S.  The little wreath ornament was a gift Marta included in the fabric she sent. Sweet!

Oh that fabric is so pretty. I love the wreath too. You did a great job as always. Can't wait to see what you decide to work on next. The tree is beautiful. Funny I was picturing where you might put it and that is the spot that I came up with. lol. Great minds think alike.

Love your block! Sometimes we just have to be independent and let dad know we are big girls and will most likely survive when they aren't around to help us, but then sometimes we just let them help to make them feel good.
