It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas….

It is that time of the year again and we are all thinking about gifts for those we love. It is always nice to give something home made with love. Here are a few snaps of my Christmas table runner, depicting lovely poinsettias which are needle turn appliquéd and embellished with small beads. It is handquilted and is the centre piece for our family table for the festive season.

‘Benjamin’ the friendly giraffe

Something different this month.

A dear friend has a new grandson – so what better excuse to sew something different. ‘Benjamin’ is named after the baby and was created from a ‘Melly & Me’ pattern using Kaffe Fassett fabrics from my stash. He has felt eyes and black wool for the mane and tail.

I also have been working on the quilt – Antique French Lace, adding the other 4 designs in the centre border. Lots of cutting and preparing the circles before they are appliquéd into place. Only one more to go, then the centre border will be complete.
