I don't want to be a bringer of bad news or 'the startler' for the week, but I did the count to Christmas and it is only 13½ weeks!!!
The cereal some of our family likes was on half price at the supermarket this week, so yes, I bought four packets in readiness for their stay with us at Christmas! The thought of having family around us in a matter of weeks brings great delight and I am enjoying the lovely anticipation of that. I always have said that half the fun of holidays is the anticipation, and that is equally true when it comes to family!
I thought it was time I put some different Christmas patterns in my store. They are projects that I made some time ago, but they have not been available for purchase until now. They are all quick and easy and very inexpensive.
A Christmas Pudding Bauble
which was a project I taught at a Craft Retreat last year:
Then there are these more elegant
Door-Knob or Christmas tree ornaments:
And what about a Christmas envelope?
This is made from a non-traditional Navy and Gold Christmas fabric but would look just as great in your colour of choice. It is a lined fabric envelope with a matching gift tag. It can be used instead of gift wrapping for a money gift, or an "I love you" note. It will even fit a fat quarter inside! The big advantage is that the wrapping becomes a useful gift as it is an ideal pouch to use after Christmas for threads, makeup, glasses etc.
I thought it was time I put some more ready-mades in my Etsy Store.
So far I have added three little A7 pocket/purse notebooks. They make a great small gift.
I have been working steadily on the 2020 Block of the Month Wall Quilt, so more pictures of that next time.
