One Christmas Item with One Flower Wednesday

A good morning to you all on the very chilly morning. The sun is out but it's not helping with the freezing wind blowing.

I've finally sorted out centres and pathways for my 1/2" hexies. These 3 flowers have been waiting patiently and I can now show them with centres. I read somewhere quite a while back about attaching the pathway hexies to one side of each flower and they should all slot in together. If I make the 8 cream hexies and attach to the flowers as I go then I won't get tired of making heaps of cream hexies all at the end.

As today is the 25th here in Australia, it's time to share our One Christmas Item for the month of May.

Two more Bon Bons ready to fill with goodies and gift at Christmas. I thought I'd try a green stitchery this time and am really happy with the look.

Instead of doing a Mr Linky here I'm going to add a page at the top of my blog just to share photos of everyone's Christmas Items with links to each blog. If you could leave a comment here when you have posted and/or send me a pic in an email, I'll add our photos to the May Christmas Item Page.

Happy Christmas Sewing


  1. Narelle... I'm in again!
    This was a GrEat idea... I'm going to be sooo ready! Cheers :)

  2. Oh sorry.... I forgot to say how much I love the bon bons too! The green shows up wonderfully with the fabric! :)

  3. Lovin' those hexies! Great idea too!

  4. LOVE your flowers. I know what you mean about not getting sick of the cream ones. It will be easier to do them as you go. They look beautiful. Your bon bons look great too! I love the extra page for the Christmas items, you've already got mine!

  5. Hi Narelle, I am a little bit late this month but only by a few minutes.
    Your bon bons look perfect and yes the green works well too. What about some gold?

  6. Narelle, love your bon bons! So sweet! Managed to post my finish on time but wasn't able to comment until now, you are so clever with this blogging thing and figuring out pages etc., I haven't mastered linking yet! Great idea. Love your log cabin, I should work on a UFO today too!

  7. Your bon bons are so sweet. I think the green one turned out very well!
    I'm a day late showing my item, but it was finished yesterday :-)
