Back With A July Finish

Well nearly finished.  I'm jumping in before Monday begins another week of busy busy and I miss posting.  My apologies for being absent through June but life has been hectic with one thing and another. Some of it not great, but a lot of lovely quality time spent with family before and during the school holidays and a little trip away.

So I'm back to my Santa Cutlery Keepers and if I can stay on track I will have six of these little fellows by end of November. Just to prove I'm not sharing a pic of the same Santa each time, here is my first one with his new friend. (Still needs a little more sparkle)

I've also been doing some thinking re next year. I'm happy to keep 1 Xmas Item A Month and our quiet little workshop door open for anyone to pop in and out when time permits. It's lovely seeing the beautiful creations that each of you kindly share with fellow Elves.  I've already decided that I'm going to be working on my "A Merry Christmas Garden" which I started waaayyy back in January 2014. Time to bring this beauty to at least a finished top by end of 2020.  Progress so far is ...

Merry Christmas Creating xx

Finally a Finish

Finally got a finish after being away for a couple of months travelling.
Its a lovely pattern called Let it Snow Pennyrug by Sew Unique Creations and is made all in wool felt.
Cheers Sheryl xx

May Makes

At the start of May I got busy and cut out the cutlery panel, placing each Santa into a packet ready to grab and go ... then things went pair shaped and the Santas are still in their packets.

So today I got busy once again and whipped up 4 more Christmas Tree decorations.

Grandson J has already claimed 2 of my earlier decorations for his tree ... love him to bits xx

Keep sharing your makes or progress dear Elves ... we're nearly halfway there ... oh my!
