The first of my free Christmas patterns is ready for you today.
Feel free to share the logo above on your blog, Facebook or wherever you like!
The first pattern I have for you is a Christmas Dove ornament. It's a traditional decoration, symbolic of peace, purity and love. It's a reminder to me of God's great Christmas gift to us - Jesus - the only one who can bring true peace to our hearts - and to the world.
You don't need much equipment to make one and it won't take long, so I hope you enjoy making some lovely Christmas Doves. Imagine how beautiful they would look in white felt with gold or silver embellishment.
You can find the pattern here in my Craftsy store.
Don't forget to email me some photos of the Christmas Doves that you make.
Here's another really quick project of mine that you could make for Christmas - "Holly Rings":
They are serviette rings made or burlap/hessian with a little bit of lace, applique and embroidery.
You can find the pattern in Handmade magazine Vol 33 No 1:
I've had a very happy week - completed two projects that I am quite ecstatic about, sent off three designs to magazine editors, had a wonderful family celebration and began playing with my new Electric Quilt 7 software!
On the "To Do" list this week is to make some mug rugs for Christmas presents and I'm itching to start designing a quilt with my new programme. There's some lovely fabric in the stash crying out to be used!
