1 Xmas Item Per Month for March

Dia Duit, some time ago, I visited Kimono House in the Nicholas Building Melbourne and purchased half a metre of the Japanese fabric. A Beautiful piece of fabric. I have made it into a Japanese Grab Bag, a Christmas gift for a great blogging friend of mine.

A knitting item for March

This sweater is already in the gift box - waiting for Christmas 2015. The tractor had to be blue, because the boy's grandfather has a blue one :-). Size 4 years.

Have a great weekend!

March Items

Whew, I actually have something to show this month. I made a little progress on the adorable advent animals. They are so much fun to stitch and they are really cute. Meet Cashmere Camel and Pierre Penguin.

March brings 
the second installment
to my longer term and bigger project-

another block of an odd looking reindeer
well dressed for our current rather chilly spell!
I've been seeking out my scarves myself the past couple of days :)
Gosh there are some gorgeous
items this month!
You Elves are so inspiring :)

May you have a joyfully jingly-jangly April :)

March Marches On

Can you believe March has almost come to the end and tomorrow (here in Aus) is the 25th.  Time has been whizzing by and I have managed just a little 'birdie' stitching on block 2 of 'Merry Christmas Garden'.

How has your Christmas sewing been for March? ... Please share your finishes or progress on long term projects.

Merry Christmas Stitches to you all.

February finish......

I've decided this year to work on a couple of long term projects. So for February, I've traced out all the stitcheries and completed the snowman one of Michelle Ridgway's 'C is for Christmas' hexagon table runner. One down, 8 more to stitch.
Thanks Narelle for hosting 1 Xmas Item a Month again in 2015.
See you next month. Happy stitching till then.......
