I made it......

It's the 25th and I managed to have some goodies made to put away for my Christmas items.
Woooo Hooooo!
Some yo yo christmas trees...
and another pin cushion to put away for gifting. This was a free pattern here
There was another pincushion but I forgot to take a pic and it is on it's way somewhere special.

This lovely trinket came in the mail yesterday from Cheryl of Willowberry Designs. I am taking part in a Swap she is organising and each one of us has received a lovely little gift. I am using mine as a Scissor fob. Being a hexagon makes it even lovelier.

Happy stitching
Marina...

Lovely little gifts Marina. I made one of those little trees a few years ago. It has no base but I added some string and it hangs on my Christmas tree, Makes a great tree decoration.

Love the yo-yo trees! I have a couple started . . . somewhere! I am inspired to look for them and finish them, although my fabric choices for them aren't are pretty as yours! Great gifts!

Just popped over from A passion for Applique's blog. When I was making a comment on her blog i noticed your comment re: 'waking up looking older' it made me laugh & i thought i would follow the link to your blog. And it's a small world as I am a Melbourne girl also. So, hi and i must say your pincushion is gorgeous.

Yo-yo's are such fun to make, the Christmas tree idea is fabulous! Love the pincushion and the gift from Cheryl is very sweet.
