There Goes June

I feel a little embarrassed to say that I have been a bad chief elf and have nothing to share this month. Of my two finishes one was an addition to a baby shower gift and the other is a warm crochet rug for myself to keep the cold away. If you would like to pop over to Pins and Whiskers you can see those items there.

Over the school holidays we are patching, sanding and painting our kitchen and dining room so the sewing is packed away for now. I promise to do better next month as I still have more dish clothes I wish to get finished and those I can knit a few rows at night if my eyes stay open long enough.

Half way through the year with plenty of time still to make a good start to your Christmas gift stash or some new decorations for the home. Thank you for continuing to share your lovely makes and if, like me, your stash is a little low, don't give up. Just one crafty Christmasy creation is a bonus.

Catch up

Hi all. Here are my projects for June. Have been travelling since February so I needed to 'catch up' with my Xmas items for April and May as well. Table runners, placemats/mug rugs, and cushion covers will be high on my gift giving list this year, so this mug rug and these two table runners are the start. I used the "scraps" from the tops to make the reverse side of the runners. The wall-hanging is my interpretation of a pattern by "That Raggedy One". The fabric is hand dyed cotton from a designer based in Flowerpot, Tasmania.

June gifts done on time!

They're kind of hard to see in the picture,
but these are 4 finished table runners using a "holiday pops" jelly roll.  I like how they turned out, and they will be Christmas gifts, but I don't think they really look particularly Christmas-y (if that's a word).  But I got my June project done IN JUNE.  YAY!!!!!!!!!!!
