One Xmas Item A Month ~ It's the 25th

Good Morning ('s almost lunch time here) to all the Christmas Elves busily preparing for Christmas 2011. I hope you have made a good dent in your gift list or maybe you're looking forward to displaying new Christmas items around your home.
This month I'm really running behind and will be busy this afternoon making my item for July. All the requirements are laid out ready ... machine is ready ... pattern is traced. As the recipient is a regular visitor to my blog this will be my only photo and all I will hint is that this fellow likes the snow :)

I've visited a couple of 'Elves' this morning and they have some lovely goodies to share. Click on the July Xmas Page at the top of my blog where you can view pictures and follow the links to visit their blogs.

There are still 4 months before December so if you haven't made a Christmas Item yet there is still time to make a headstart on some Christmas sewing. Then next month on the 25th post a photo on your blog and leave me a comment so that we can all visit.

Thankyou to those who have been sewing along each month and keeping each other company as we look forward to a stress free Christmas.


  1. cant wait to see this creation Narelle.

  2. Lovely happy Christmas colours you are working with today .... thanks for the nudge... it's lovely to have some things done....

  3. Thanks once again Narelle!
    I look forward to this chilly character!

  4. Hello Narelle,

    Good luck with your Christmas project.
    happy days.

  5. buttons, ric rac, felt and pretty fabric,...... I hope we will eventually get to see it.
    No item for me this month.
    How did we get to the 25th so quickly?

  6. I love anything with ric rac - I can't wait to see "him" finished! I was able to make up an extra tote bag for a Christmas present this month. Slow but sure progress!

  7. I love that zig zag fabric. Can't picture what part of the pattern it will be. I will be checking back to see what you make :) I got busy and made something today just because of your wonderful sew along. Thanks Narelle.

  8. That red is perfect for Christmas. Looking forward to seeing the results.
    Almost didn't make it this month.

  9. Looking forward to seeing this one when the secret can be revealed!! I'm slowly making progress - but not a lot of finishes. Inspiring to see what others are doing. Hope your sewing afternoon went well.
