Christmas Items for October



The 25th seems to roll around a bit quicker each month.  This month's Christmas items are this Nancy Halvorsen panel which I have been hand quilting.  It is almost finished, just 1 section, the border and binding to go.   I received the panel some years ago and this year it will finally be quilted and on display.  YAY !!!
(an overcast day makes for very wrong colours)

 These are the Christmas cards we made at our card night this month.

You will be able to see lots of other beautiful Christmas items that have been made by visiting Narelle at Pins and Whiskers.  

I will be back soon with my other "makes" and finishes..

Awwwwwwwwwww that's a beautiful wallhanging - I love Nancy Halvorsen :) Cute cards too - I just found out today that my sewy friend's daughter enjoys making cards and is quite good at it - I thought I might ask her to make me some cards for Christmas, since it isn't a craft I seem to have any skill at, lol!

I've barely thought of Christmas - so much happening in our family right now that each week is enough to try and keep on top of.....
