Xmas Ideas

December 12, 2011 4 Comments

Hello   Xmas is coming in a hurry this year, I think I said that last year as well. When my children were young I was always so organized and had the xmas shopping well done by October most years, now I am the queen of the last minute. How did that happen ? Haha. I have been out shopping with my sons lovely girlfriend Chantel, with two sons, what a blessing it is to have another woman around to share these pleasures. With her help I have managed to complete all of my xmas shopping, she really helped with ideas of what to buy everyone. Now I am ready 'almost' and can't wait for everyone to open their presents. I have also been making xmas presents for friends and have a few ideas to share with you all. You can never have too many pin cushions. I also love thread catchers and have made this one with a pin cushion to match for a friend.

I thought our sew in day ladies might enjoy making these in Janurary. Happy Stitching Sharon

Today I am going to start making my Shoo Fly blocks for the Treasures from the scrap bin pattern in my book Autumn Bouquet. There are a few things I would like to mention about my thought process.
