A Quiet Moment At Last!

Oh what a week ... the final week of school ... busy, busy, exhausting! Throw in a couple of days of cattle work and there's been little time for sewing.  I did s.q.u.e.e.z.e in a stitch here and there so it's time to report in for '1 Xmas Item A Month' on the 15th of December and the last for the year.

My 'tree theme' Christmas Gift is so close to a finish ... just needs some padding and I'll be handing it over on Tuesday so I can reveal after then but for now here's another sneak peak.

TTS is also soooooo close. Running out of time I machine quilted 2 rows in the red/white check border and yesterday got the binding machined on. Last night I pinned the binding ready for hand stitching. I still plan to do some more hand quilting in the last border but for now it can hang on the wall once the binding is finished.

Thankyou to all my fellow elves who've been busy already posting their Christmas Goodies ... I'll be popping around for a longer visit shortly. It was wonderful to go to my gift box and take out the items I've made through the year. Some are on display and some are ready for wrapping and gifting.  I hope you've all found this time of year a little less stressful with your handmade goodies at the ready.

It's always encouraging being part of a friendly and fun group and I hope to see lots more creativity next year.

Merry Christmas and Happy Sewing

PS:  I promise a full reveal once TTS is on the wall and my 'tree' gift has been gifted :)


  1. Sorry didn't make it in time, again. Will check up on all the other elves and make some notes for next year.
    Thank you for hosting again this year.

  2. It is so hard to find time for sewing at this time of year. Looks like you almost have two great finishes there.

  3. I nearly didn't get my hanging finished but was determined last night was to be it. :) Can't wait to see both your hangings. Hugs,

  4. ... so long as there is progress you know you will get there...

  5. Mine was a sneak peek too... someone might be watching...ssshhh!
    Lots of FuN this year... so I'll see you in 2013 for sure Narelle.
    Merry Christmas... :)

  7. Hi Narelle,
    I can't wait to see those finished projects, they look so good.
    Cheers, Anita.

  8. Thanks so much Narelle, It's been so much fun participating this year. I love seeing all the creative goodies everyone makes, so impressive! I finally got my last post up, I think next year I should post as I finish instead of waiting, then at least I'll have something up, if not all.
    Hope you enjoy your holidays and I am looking forward to seeing your finishes!
