Christmas item

The 25th is here again - time for 1 Christmas Item a Month.
Thank you  for hosting it again this month Narelle.  You can go to Narelle's blog to see the beautiful Christmas items made this month.  You will find lots of inspiration.

This month I used up a UFO Christmas block to make some items.
The starting block
 After using the middle section to make a pin cushion, I used the top and bottom thirds to make 4 coasters and a mug rug. These little items are now sitting in my Christmas box, instead of being an orphan block in my UFO stash.  That is a good feeling.
I was going to make something else using another orphan block but time beat me, so that will come later.

HAHA what a great idea - I would never have thought to take apart a block and use it bit by bit - that's adorable!

Very pretty. It's never too early to get ready for Christmas.
