Last Christmas fling.

 Well I hope everyone had a peaceful Christmas. I finished this block on Christmas eve, the weather has been dark, dreary and wet. Not the best conditions for photo taking.

I'm hoping to set these blocks in a skirt for a smaller Christmas tree.

I wish everyone a healthy and happy 2021.

 Completed stocking for the newest grandbaby.  Last gift for this year.  Also soooooo happy that our group will continue.  I know I wasn't very active but I am getting ready for 2021 no matter what comes up.

All Wrapped Up for Another Year

 Merry Christmas fellow Elves ... it's almost time.  I finished this wall hanging off on the weekend, wrapped it and gifted it at our local Patchwork Group Christmas Breakup.

Have you put the last stitch in your Christmas Gifts and tied the bows just right?  Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and hoping you are able to be with loved ones after this crazy year.  

The 1 Xmas Item A Month blog will remain open for 2021 and I do hope you are able to continue to contribute posts as you prepare for the new year ahead.  I sadly haven't been able to put as much time in here as I would have liked to but am more than happy to keep the door open on our merry little workshop.

Mickey's Playhouse (Table Cover)

I finished up my last Christmas gift of the year!
I know it's not the 25th but I wanted to get this
posted before things get too busy.

Our grandkids love Mickey Mouse so I decided to
make them a fabric playhouse that fits right over
their dining table.  Above it is displayed on our table
which is smaller so the fit isn't right but you get the
idea.   My daughter just got a new IKEA table so I
was able to look up the exact measurements
from their website. 

The letters, flowers and Mickey Mouse shapes
are all appliqued.  On each side of the clubhouse
is a "window" made out of clear vinyl.  The front
door curtains are pulled back by ties with velcro.

I'm thinking this should be a great way to keep the
kids occupied when mom is working in the kitchen.

A clubhouse but it can be folded up and put away!

Merry Christmas to all and happy quilting!

Oh so late.

 This is a very late November post rather than an early December one. We are back home after the builders finished and trying t get to grips with the new technology of remote controls for the central heating.

Here is the little Christmas embroidery, not the best photo due to the seasonal weather in the u.k.

The colours are the shaded green, metallic green, gold thread and red.

I did finish month five of the Lucy Boston blocks, I'm not sure I will get month six finished in December as we have the house to put back to normal.

Christmas trees are up and outside lights to combat the shorter daylight hours. 

Happy sewing
