early Christmas item post

I couldn't wait to share my Christmas items for this month, it is a change to be early and to be able to do a full reveal so here goes...
(the little owl hanging has gone to live at mum's place as she liked it so much)
loved making these ornaments and they are quite addictive and easy to make (once you have instructions that make sense- thanks to Marg Low)
There are a few more buttons coming to make some more. They are just so gorgeous! The cross stitch Santa has been sitting there waiting to be made up properly and I think he looks quite cute.

This week I gave the comfort quilt to my work friend. She loved it. Phew- big relief.
I was so happy with the finished quilt.
love to photograph a rolled up quilt...


The deadline is looming for the 'friends with Benefits swap' item to be mailed. Mine is packed and ready to go!
So watch out Lillian it will be on it's way Monday.

hope your weekend has had some craftiness...
Next post I will show and tell the progress on my Swan Lake..

Happy stitching

Those are awesome little Christmas decorations.... and I'm not surprised your mum wanted the owls.. they can hang all year round can't they? They are all wonderful.... A rolled up quilt is so yummy... I love it too and so glad your friend loved her quilt... there is always the worry until you know.. I need to wrap my FwB up and send it off tommorrow...

Your ornaments have turned out lovely, and I would have snagged that owl one too!
So pleased your friend liked your comfort quilt, it is a lovely gesture which would keep her as warm as the quilt will.
I wish I could wrap my fwb swap parcel as prettily.

So many lovely little pieces on display. I do like that rotund little Father Christmas. Good to hear that your comfort quilt was well received. A beautiful and very thoughtful gift. I have no doubt that there is a very gorgeous something in that package.
