November Xmas Stitching

I can't believe it is November already, but at least we get to put out all those lovely Christmas things we've all been stitching all year. Thankyou Narelle for keeping us motivated during the year. It has been fun seeing what everyone has been sewing. 
My favourite tree is the one with handmade decorations on it - either ones I've made or from friends and swaps.  This month I have been stitching these cute little star decorations - a lovely pattern from Michelle of Rag-Tag Stitchin. Cheryl

A "Naughty" List?

If there's going to be a 'naughty' list then I better put myself at the top. My poor little birdy ornament is still waiting to be made up and no further Christmas Crafty-ness has been happening except for this 12 1/2" block I made up for our local patchwork group's Christmas gift swap.

I'm afraid this cruel drought just won't let go and all my time and energy is spent helping hubby care for our livestock. It's lovely to be able to pop in here and see all the gorgeous gifts and decorations that all you lovely clever elves have been busy making. Keep up the great work because you-know-who is packing the sleigh and it won't be long now...who's already started their festive displays or is there a special date at your place?

2015?  Yes, I would love to keep our merry group going next year and look forward to joining in once more with hopefully more success in the crafty department.

RECIPES?  If you have a Christmas recipe you would like to email to me, I'll pop it up on the Recipe page when I have a chance.

DECEMBER ~ I was thinking that maybe as December is THE month, we could post at any time if you have any items to share.

Happy Christmas Crafting and may your Gift Boxes be overflowing with handmade goodness.

Naughty naughty Elf!!

That's me!
I see you making such fabulous goodies, you are all good Elves..................but not me, I haven't made a Christmasy thing since August! B - A - D!!!!

Will this cushion make up for it?

the back..................

I also made a bunch of decorated hand towels and tea towels.

Can I go back to being a good Elf..................naughty is not so nice!

It's a Marg Low design from an old Homespun magazine (#38).
It's always lovely to see what everyone's been making and thank you Narelle:-)

November Finishes

November project

My project for this month is a cushion for a friend who has cancer.  She saw the design on the cover of one of my magazines while visiting me, and said "Oh that is lovely!  Would it be hard to make?" and I said no, not hard at all. 

Here is my version.  Slightly different fabric, as I had some red and white spotted material in my stash, which also had little blue flowers on it, but I used it anyway, rather than buy more.   Must call D. to see when I can give it to her rather than wait until closer to Christmas.

1 Xmas item a Month
