In JuNe

This months item is another little gift bag. This time the embroidery is "Candles" which I coloured in, but the bag pattern is the same.
I have now added it to the gift box so I am in good shape for Xmas.
Thanks Narelle for the encouragement to make a gift / item each month.

May from Me.....

I have dug out a couple of things from the UFO cupboard this month....

These little pouches are going to be perfect for some little treats.... Anni Downs design and her fabric at the back....  I think I'd like to do some more of these....


This is a Michelle Ridgeway stitchery design that I have had for some time.... I still have a bit of my favourite trees fabric so I used that for the borders....

... and I am continuing with my banner stitcheries.....

So that's my Christmas sewing this month.... looking forward to seeing yours!!

Hugz from Fiona....

April Quicky

Another quick project and 8 little tissue packet covers to add to gifts at Christmas.

Without our little workshop, it would be all too easy to not bother ... thank you fellow elves for your company and encouragement to add to our gift boxes each month.

Every gift or decoration, big or small, is handmade from the heart.

SanTa MiNi

It feels so gOOd to cross a project off the "to do" list doesn't it?
I made a 12inch MiNi for DD#2 this month.
Thanks Narelle for the motivation each month...
If you would like details about this pattern... just visit my blog here.

Another Long Term Project

My husband keeps telling me he needs a new quilt. The last one I made for him is threadbare and well loved. So, when I discovered the Sun, Sand and Sea Block of the Month at Sew Incredibly Crazy, I decided to join the fun and make the quilt as a Christmas gift. (Hopefully in 2017, not 2018. We'll see.) Our family is full of Oregon State University fans, so the orange and black theme seemed fitting.

This is block 2. I still need to fill in the license plate, but have not decided what I want it to say. Until then, this block is done.

In April, I aim to spend at least 10 minutes a day on my Winter/Christmas Wall Quilt. It may be the only way I motivate myself to finish quilting it with snowflakes. I hope to have progress to show on it next month, as well as blocks 1 & 3 from the Sun, Sand and Sea Block of the Month.

Wishing you all a productive month in April.

Nice and Quick

Gotta love a quick project when the end of the month is around the corner. Another placemat/coaster set for the gift box ... I'm working on a set for all the girls in my family 😃

It's never too late to get a head start so pop into the workshop anytime and share with your fellow elves what Christmas goodies you've been working on.

March Christmas Item...

This month I finished off this wallhanging.  I have had the stitchery done and then found the perfect fabric for a border

( I went back to the shop but it had sold out - note to self - buy lots when you love it!!!)

I have also started a little banner of stitcheries..... these are two blocks towards it....

I've made this before and loved it - this time it will be for a gift

So there we go..... March is almost over - going so quick so it's great to get some Christmassy things done.  Thanks Narelle....
