Lots of Christmas projects are being worked on and some even finished. It must be the colder weather that makes me think Christmas. Who knows?

A few little decorations have been finished. I made some of these last year, but gave them all away, so figured I should make a few to keep.

I also tried my hand at a couple of these.

The snowies theme keeps going with these goodies from Bonnie Sullivan for a banner.

I still need to choose a fabric to string them together.

I have caught up with the stitcheries from April for Gail Pan’s BOM.

Just noticed that the bird needs an eye. Glad to spot that before stitching it all together.

I couldn’t leave the camper wool mat alone. I decided to add a grey ric-rac to the edge and attach it with french knots.

And I thought a few snowflake buttons could be added, too.

Last of all, a little bit of crochet. Perfect for when the days turn cold.

This is the one that is cropping up on many sites and is the Sweet Pea blanket by Lucy from Attic 24. I am about a third of the way along. The colours are delightful.

I am missing making quilts but we have building work going on so it is not easy to have a lot of fabric out at the moment. I will try to be patient. Glad I still have smaller projects on the go.

Cheers for now, Karen

  • I see that you are finding ways to stay busy even if you cant get to your stash!!! I love the background fabric on the banner and will always have a soft spot for old trucks. I think that they remind me of my Dad!! Glad it is cooling off there.

    It’s lovely to see your projects Karen – and oh so inspiring to see you working on Christmas things – I need to think about mine earlier in the year and not in December! It’s hard to pick a favourite – they’re all gorgeous. I love your crochet too, and a perfect project for cooler evenings.

    I love all your snowmen items. They are so very cute. I have never worked with wool. You are certainly in the Christmas spirit Karen. I also made the sweet pea blanket. Crochet is a great project when you can’t get to your sewing.Lucy’s blankets are so great too. I am just starting another one, my fourth if you can believe it. Have a great day!
