More Christmas...

I just realized that I hadn't shown what I sent to Nancy in Linda and Stephanie's Christmas Swap - shame on me.

I was really pleased with this topper - it is from one of the Anka's Treasure's books. ( I can check which one if any one is interested) The fabrics were from a charm pack I had - Maison de Noel by Moda I think. I love the extra bit of blue in the range - one of my favourite colours. This is the bag that I made to put everything in - it is quite large and I thought it might make a good Christmas Swag.


I made a needle book with a stitchery taken from the Twelve Red Robins pattern by Cinderberry Stitches but the pattern for the actual needle book was from a project by Rosalie Quinlan. I borrowed some scallop scissors to cut the felt and I just love the effect - just a bit nicer than pinking shears.

And then with a few other things I wrapped them all up and sent them on their way. ( I made a gift tag too from the same Cinderberry Stitches pattern.)


Merry Christmas in July Nancy! ( You can read what Nancy thought here - it's absolutely wonderful to see the things you send in their new house. Don't you love her table and the topper! )
