Happy New Year - Roll Call

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year full of family, fun and fabric.  Trusting that your Christmas was a happy time spent with loved ones and just a little less stressful with all the wonderful gifts and decorations you made throughout 2018.

Time to kick off the new year with a roll call of Elves wishing to play in the "1 Xmas Item A Month Workshop" and make a start on filling your gift box or decorations box ready for a Merry and Stress-less 2019 Christmas.

Please leave a comment on this post only if you wish to join our merry band of elves working their magic.  I will be updating the sidebar list at the end of the month ... then just make a post around the 25th of each month with something you've made or progress on a long term project.

Get ready ... get set ... sew.

Advent calender

I made my grandaughter an advent calendar yesterday
My daughter & i decided rather than buying lollies or small toys to go int the grandchildren's calendars that i would make snowmen to go into the pockets & they would move them along to each pocket to count down the days.
Happy Stitching,

November Gift Goodies

Oh my ... the countdown has begun!

Just this morning I finished the last of 3 washcloths for this month. Teamed with a fragrant bar of soap, these will make great little stocking fillers for family.

What do you have planned for December?

 If you're in a little bit of a panic with a list of gifts still to make, why not join our Workshop in 2019 and make an early start on your gift stash. For now, there is still time for a few small merry makes so relax and enjoy the Season.

September Finish

One small wash cloth ready for a mighty job. This micro fibre yarn is so absorbent, your dishes will wash themselves.

This is my favourite colour so far ... great stocking fillers.

September finishes

I've cleared 3 projects of my " Christmas decorations to finish" pile. I had hoped to have a few more finished by the 25th but time has gotten away again.

Happy Stitching,
