Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all. We have horrendous weather conditions here with lots of snow and difficulty to drive on the roads around the village. We'll have a nice family meal tonight and we are hoping to see Santa....
I have 2 Christmas finishes as I finished Baby Daughter stocking yesterday evening and my Christmas Table Runner. My last 2 OPAMs for this year! No pictures to post yet but hopefully soon.
Enjoy the festive season!

Christmas sewing

Two years ago I made a Christmas stocking
 and present bag
for Big Boy, finishing the bag on Christmas Eve. I had bought lovely patterns from New Zealand,

all applique is done with Bondaweb. When we decorated the house last week we got them out with the other Christmas decoration. And I decided that although at 22 months, Baby Daughter doesn't mind so much not having her own Stocking, I would try to make her one before Christmas. So that was my project for yesterday Sewing In night. I got as far as cutting the stocking and sewing the front together.

This wasn't too bad considering how late I started. I will try to cut the pieces on Bondaweb tonight as I would really like to finish the front of the Stocking by tomorrow evening, watch this space!
