A UFO and a non 1 item for Christmas.....

Way back Cheryl from Willowberry Designs hosted a lovely little French Items swap and shared with us a bunch of sweet little patterns

I did send out my swap items but I had quite a few sitting in my UFO box

.... now they are done ....


... there is a lavender bag, needlebook, scissor holder and thimble holder.... all rather cute and will be in the gifties box....

Narelle hosts One Christmas Item a Month....  I haven't done mine so it is a non item..... but I have made a head start on a couple of pretty Christmassy things.....

... these are some "one day they will be decorations" ....


... and these are some rather fun "one day they will be a runner or 3 different mats"


I fussy cut some lovely winter scenes and included them as the 6" block inside a Sawtooth block


I did one of these as a swap block earlier in the year... and liked it so decided I wanted some!



Righto, Gotto Go.... deadline for the Stitchalong sewing bag is looming..... that lining and template base is a mighty challenge for me...

Oh Fiona, that is a gorgeous little set. I don't think I could part with it! Good luck with the lining, it's tricky, but worth it in the end.

Lovely to see the lavender finishes and good to see the works in progress, too.

Lovely gifts for the gift box Fiona and your decorations and table mat/runner will be very cute. Yes that hand stitching was a BIG challenge for me too in the SAL bag - hard to keep it in place.
