1 Xmas Item A Month

The month has gone by so fast and again 1 Xmas Item A Month has rolled around.

This month I have made a Xmas tag designed by Marg Low called "Deer Tree". This was a very quick to stitch up and was completed over two nights. I stitched up the Christmas Tree pattern this time.

Some Blocks Finished

Have not been doing much sewing this month so far. Have been away a few times down the line to my parents to go to both the Martinbourough Fair one weekend, then to the 2014 ENZED Superstock Teams Champs the next week and then taking Miss 17 down to her Nursing Course in the Hawkes Bay.  Here is a picture of her in her uniform for lab practice which she sent me earlier this evening on Snapchat.

The sewing I have done so far is the latest blocks for all my block swaps.

First up is the Paper Pieced Block for Julie and is named Lone Star

Then for Ank an Angel call went out and this Attic Windows was made for her.

For the 6" Block swap I made these baskets for Mary

And then for the QBSA I made this Pinwheel for Nikki

Finally for the CQBSA I made another Pinwheel for Carolyn

January NewFO

This year I have joined up to the NewFO Challenge.  To know what it is all about you can go here and find out from Cat Patches blog.  First up on my list is 12 topped tea towels.  I started and managed to finish six of these this month.

I started of with these Christmas tea towels. I then found the cut out pattern which I have had for a few years now and can not remember where I found it from.

Hunted through my stash of Christmas fabric  sewed away for a couple of days and these are what I completed.

These will be put away and will be used as gifts closer to Christmas.  The rest will most likely be made using un-themed teatowels.

To see more of who particpated this month go to the Linky Party here.
