Little Christmas Bits.

Posted on | December 20, 2017 | 17 Comments

This week is a good time to catch up on a few little bits and pieces.

I started these button stars a long, long time ago. For some reason they were hidden away. All the hard work of sewing on the buttons was done and all I had to do was sew on a backing. Glad I found them.

This was a little candle mat I made at the last day of Christmas Club. It is a design from Birdbrain. Very quick and easy to make.

Cards for Christmas were kept very simple this year. I saw the ribbons first and wanted to use them in the card design. I tried a lot of different layouts but kept getting back to basics. Just a couple of layers and let the ribbon stand out.

The forecast for Christmas Day here is low 20s. How perfect is that!

Hope it is looking good for you, too.

Cheers, Karen
