Christmas Sewing...

This year I am joining in with Narelle's "1 Christmas Item a Month" as I felt last year I wasn't very organised and didn't do the Christmas sewing I wanted.  (anyone can join anytime....its a great way for motivation and ideas)

I have quite a few Christmas UFO's so I'm starting off finishing them...

I quilted this runner with straight lines and matched the binding with the border....  There is a bit of wiggly quilting in the stitched area...


I love this cheerful runner..... I did the stitchery a few years ago....


.. perfect for on the table at Christmas time.....


I have been stitching up some snowmen when I wanted a short break from my Dutch Treat blocks.... I have always just loved backstitch work...


... and I was thrilled to find exactly the fabric I wanted to finish this one off... which will be next months Christmas project (and also a UFO)


Righto, Gotto Go... I just can't believe it's the end of February already... that means end of 'official' summer here - and I hope brings on some more reasonable temperatures and cooler evenings... and RAIN...

I know, who can believe how fast the year is going already? Oooh, lovely stitching and finishing and yes, that fabric is perfect for the snowmen.

This is a very inspirational post to help us other quilters to keep busy finishing up our UFOs. Your stitcheries are so cute!
