1 Xmas Item a Month


Lots of lovely xmas items over a Narelle's blog "Pins and Whiskers". Narelle hosts 1 Xmas Item a Month - a great idea to get some stitching done for yourself or for the gift box.

This month I decided to work on a UFO - this is a Mums Moment pattern - showing it's age I know.
But I had completed the stitcheries - just needed to make those cute little stars, put it all together and add the border.  Not colors I normally use for Christmas or use at all really, but followed the color theme they had used and was quite happy with how it turned out.
Just thought I would finish with a little op shop find during the week - they are painted wooden figurines and look very at home in amongst my bits and pieces.  Cheryl
