Christmas Crafting - June 2010
Although barely in time for June, I have been crafting small items for little gifts this coming Christmas. I was behind all the other starters, finishing my journal and storage boxes late in the challenge too. But what to stitch?
I've started on a few key rings, but not finished yet. I've started on a couple of key fobs, but not finished yet. I did stitch on my quilt top - but that's not part of the challenge I did finish my pink snowman cushion - but that is also not part of the challenge
I did find a couple of great tutorials - Not sure who gave me the idea for coasters - but I thought they looked fairly simple - and I had some fat quarters to play with... I made 2 sets of 6 to start with, and thought they were so great, I've gone overboard with the idea - I'm now in the midst of sewing about another40 of them.... I can sew about 6 per night, and will sew all the tails in sometime this weekend. I've still got a couple of ideas for little gifts floating in my head - I just have to knuckle down and put them on paper and transfer them to fabric!
You can also see my itty bitty tomato pincushion - I've only made one so far, but plan to make many, many more. Something that took my fancy, but I don't know who else (but stitchers) who would want one. My main challenge is to make Christmas gifts for non-stitchers.
My next post will be my 200th post - fancy that! I'll gather some bits together for a giveaway and will announce it on my next message!
