I’m afraid to say that I haven’t got much further with my unfinished projects. My day job has been busier than usual and I haven’t had the energy to do much else in the evenings except go to bed!
I’ve managed to do about a half of the Christmas gift tags and made a couple of ornaments for the tree from some left over Christmas fabric from last year.
I haven’t decided what to do with some other fabric I have so I might pack it away until next year. I have some beautiful Christmas designs as well that I might make into a Christmas wall hanging or maybe a bed quilt.
One thing I did get finished was block 5 from the Homespun BOM. In the end, I decided to use some flowers from a fat quarter I had and use them instead of the embroidered ones that were in the pattern. I just don’t have time to do all that hand embroidery. I would like to finish this quilt top by the end of January so I had to make sacrifices somewhere. I was pretty pleased with the finished block. Now I can move on to the last three blocks.
I have also made some gingerbread Christmas trees but the icing was crap so no pictures this time but I’ll make my second batch next week some time. Oh, & I have nearly finished my Christmas shopping, so that’s a bonus. My feet are killing me from today’s effort. My lovely Hubble kindly massaged some peppermint oil into them.
This week I need to finish the Gift Tags for the kids presents and hopefully make up some more ornaments.
I hope you’re all on schedule for Christmas.
Until next time…get creative!
