March Christmas Item....

I have joined in with Narelle's One Christmas Item a Month challenge



 and have finished this banner (which also happens to be a UFO from last year)


I love all the little stitchery pictures....


 ... I'm sure I will use them again ...


This was a free design in 2011 from SewHappyMe...... I'm so glad I have finally done it....

I had made these little white star buttons for a different project last year and had some extra's ... and I just coloured them with a highlighter for the fluro stars I wanted... and added a little gold bell in the middle....


.. that's what happens when you are 30 minutes out of town and too impatient to wait to buy what you want...

Looking for inspiration for Christmas projects... have a look HERE... (WARNING... you will want to do these....)

Thanks to Dawn and Wendy and all the enablers at Sew It's Finished  too.... slowly the UFO's are getting done

Righto, Gotto Go - next months Christmas Item to plan  find....
(I know I did the stitchery ... I just can't find it!!!!)

I love the idea of making a banner to hang in the house, maybe a few of them. I have so many christmas designs and this would be a fun way to do them all together.

Those lovely little stitcheries will decorate your house beautifully at Christmas. Good luck finding the next project. If you don't find that one I am sure that you will find something else just as cute.
