It's the 25th!

Today is the 25th of January and it is the day to show my Christmas item for January.... The first for the year

I have finished my first "first day of Christmas' applique. I decided to make it into a table runner instead of a cushion. I still have another version of this design appliqued in brights. I used some left over fabrics from my Heart and home bom to finish this one as I had used it in the applique too. Now it is nicely put away ready to wait for the festive season to be gifted. Cross one off the list.

You really made me have to think today when you said it was the 25th. It is only the afternoon of the 24th here and I was thinking I have been writing down the wrong date all day. LOL!!!

Cute little table runner.

Hi, Marina - I popped over from Nell's Notions - that's a cute tablerunner - that little birdie looks quite content in the tree, lol! Congratulations on a pretty finish - isn't it wonderful to check an item off of the To Do list??!!

Sorry I haven't commented in so long!! The table runner is too cute. I think that patterns would also make great 'Family Tree' with the names embroidered on the leaves!

It's exciting popping around seeing what everyone's been making.
