Hello Hoppers and welcome to my Day on the Stitch It & Gift It Blog Hop. There have been some amazing projects and gifts shown this week and many thanks goes to Carla at Creatin’ in the Sticks for this amazing Hop and all her hard work organising us all. I actually found the Hop on my good friend, Farm Quilter’s Blog, so many thanks to her too.
These were actually started last year (!) but I did not get around to finishing them!!! They are for DH and the Boys as mats. They are all into cars and I just loved this fabric when I found it so had to use it for them. Really quick “gift” block to make and I did a diamond quilting on it.
I need eight little gifts for some ladies nearer Christmas but could not decide on what to do but found this sweet little stocking pattern so decided that that would work.
I used the pattern to cut them out and used my pinking sheers to save sewing and turning them.
I sewed a ribbon to one corner and attached a little bell to the outside and inside there are some chocolate truffles.
The next projects, I am afraid, are not completed! I just ran out of time sorry! However I cannot show all of them to you either as the people they are for also read my blog!!!! However here is a sneak peak!!!
The Backs. I am hoping to get them finished over the weeked.
As you can see this one is still on the machine being quilted!!! I just love the colours.
This is the back. There are two of these!!!
I just love this time of year and getting things ready for Christmas. I love spending time with the family and friends but usually end up running ragged trying to get everything done but I try each year to be organised and not get to that point!!! At the moment I am doing okay!!!!
However this is the state of Eldest’s bedroom at the moment, which I am camping in as my sewing room!!! I hate a mess so after finishing my quilting projects the next job will be to tidy this mess!!!!! I do not work well in a mess!!!!
Here are the other talented Ladies who are Hopping today:
