2 Xmas Gifts for July.

Here are two gifts made this month. They have already gone to a new home as part of a Xmas in July parcel.

A Xmas tree ornament and a Snowman table runner.
Felt great to have some finishes after a couple of months of just working on long-term projects.
Hopefully will be back again next month. Happy stitching till then........

My Xmas in July makes for this month

We were all so busy making and posting off our gifts. I know my partner, Cheryl, loved her gifts.
Here is what I made....
H...for HELPER.

T...for TREE.

S...for SNOWMAN.

Christmas in July

Merry Christmas in July to all our busy little elves. Life seems to have been extra busy for many this year and we all seem to put our sewing and creating to the bottom of the 'to do' list ... me included. With my daughters wedding coming up in early September (less than 6 weeks away - eeeek!) hubby and I are busy outdoors when we can to make the place look spic and span for the ceremony here at home.

Christmas in July for our little local sewing group meant some last minute sewing for some. The challenge was to make our 12 1/2" blocks from our 2014 Christmas swap into a finished project to show and tell. This photo is a collection of the completed items from those who were able to attend.

Did anyone else have celebrations/outings for July? Perhaps you would like to share.

Even though we're a little quiet here in the workshop, I hope you can find a little 'crafty' time and stitch away at those long term projects or add that finishing touch to a smaller item. There's still plenty of time to add to your gift stash and spread the handmade joy at Christmas.

Merry Christmas Sewing
