September Christmas items

Once again, it is time for
 This month I made my first Christmas cards for the year at our card making class.


I also added a small stitched item - or two -  double sided coasters.  One side is the log cabin, and the other a Christmas ornament shape. 

Why not go and visit Narelle at Pins and Whiskers to see what the other clever people have made this month.  There are some beautiful Christmas items made each month, well worth going to check them out.

Last month, one of my Sew Its Finished projects was this little dress.


Now here is young Grandie, Vicki wearing it.  It is very light, loose and cool looking which is perfect for the hot weather they are experiencing.

Such a cutie - and she is such a little girl now.
