Let It Sew, Let It Sew, Let It Sew!

Just a couple of last minute makes because I'm officially on holidays.  I've had an appliqued block sitting around for about 2 years that I had intended to make up into a library bag for Grandson J ... DONE!

Since I work on a Monday I rarely get to our patchwork days but as yesterday was the first day of 6 week school break ... me and my crochet made it to town. While there the girls were making lovely table runners so feeling full of inspiration, this morning I tipped out my Christmas fabric scraps and whipped up 3 small table centres and 2 place mats.

The place mats were initially also centres, but as they were shorter and wider I wasn't happy with the look. When I stitched the points down ... I was presented with the perfect cutlery pockets.

Happy Days ... Sewing while the mojo lasts.  Also going to tag ahead of time for 1 Xmas Item A Month 2018 and OPAM 2018.

Dec The Halls

Or Dining Room in my case. 

Keeping with tradition, back when my kids were in school, we always put decorations up on the first weekend in December.
