One Christmas Item a Month

A favorite time of the month - I am joining with Narelle at Pins and Whiskers for

Think everyone would know by now that I LOVE snowmen. This little guy was in a Country Threads magazine a while back - I did search for the No of the mag to give you, but it is amongst a huge pile of mags I have earmarked with projects lol.
I used one of the Cottage Garden threads "Running Postman".
I also finished May's project in Chooky's stitchalong -
The bag from Anni's book "Some Kind of Wonderful". I have changed it just ever so slightly - I've added the brown fabric I chose for the lining into the side gussets as well to give it a splash of color, and omitted the binding from around the top of the bag.

Making very slow progress on North Pole and Girls Day Out, but will show you what little progress I have made during the week. Enjoy your weekend. Cheryl
