Have you started thinking about Christmas yet? It is going to be a very different celebration for many around the world in this pandemic year. I am ever so thankful that our whole family (all 29 of us) were able to be together last Christmas in 2019. It was an amazing achievement, considering that, as our grandchildren marry, there are more and more families to be included and visited. I don't expect it will ever be possible again to be together in this way, so it is a memory that we treasure.
Our 2020 Christmas will be very quiet with just our nearby family with us, but that doesn't mean we won't put up the decorations, pretty up the Christmas Tree and have all the Christmas Dinner trimmings! I am thinking of making a new wall hanging - I wonder whether I will finish it in time for Christmas this year!

Or how about a quick and easy Christmas Bauble for your tree?
Or what about a different way to present your cutlery at your Christmas table ... and you don't need a sewing machine to make them! Your guests could even take home this Merry Mitten Cutlery Holder as a gift!
All these patterns are available in my Pattern Store here:
