Round up...

I really must post more often.... Not for your sake but my own. One of the reasons for blogging was to use it as a kind of diary for myself.... I love looking back on my makes.

A few finishes have been achieved in the build up to Christmas...

Big Jack is ready for his new home.. .. He can almost be double sided - I used the scraps up & inserted them into one width of fabric for the back... Getting fabric frugal finally..

Each year I issue a challenge for a small make with a group from the QS that I work in... This year it was the Pennie Pockets from Moda Bakeshop... I was so bowled over by the Santa one..

And finally .. My Dad has a Birthday the week before Christmas & it is always difficult to find presents for 2 events so close together.."I don't need anything.." Sound familiar? I found a fantastic china mug with a Stag & Daddy Deer on it... Then I saw Hadley's post... So had a little late night sewing session in time to make this...

There have also been a few Big Mouth pouches made but I haven't taken pictures..
So Christmas starts today with 11 of us... And then 17 on the big day.... Busy Busy... I love it...
Have a Cool Yule everyone.... but don't forget the reason for the season.. x


  1. Wowsers!
    Jack turned out perfectly and those tree favours are amazing. I make a few of those last week - they are quick and fun, aren't they? But that Santa is utterly brilliant.
    Great deer cushion too.
    Merry Christmas

    1. Thanks Liz ... Those pockets are adaptable for all seasons... I love how Jack turned out.... And now he's an engagement quilt.. Yay!

  2. Love the colors in your union jack and the back. . DROOL!

  3. Art Gallery Fabrics.... Gotta love 'em.... Thank you for your comment..
