2 Christmas Items Finished

I know I showed this door hanger earlier this month when I made it in Sue & Cathi's Quilt-a-long....
but now I've added it to my "Finish a Christmas Item" list, said nighty night to it.... and packed it away all ready to be brought out again in December. How are you all going with your projects?
I know.. I know.. it's a long way off... but with the way the weeks are flying by.. well.. it will be here BeFoRe we want it to be...  so here's my motto ..."Be PrEpArEd"... or is that from the Scouts ???.

The second item is just a stocking filler for a friend.
Needle & pin purse
Anyway I have 2 items (for this month) now ready for next Christmas, so the interest shown and the encouragement received from the other quilters is definitely helping to keep me enthusiastic.
So ThAnKs to 1 Xmas Item a Month and Christmas thru the Year groups!
Jody from Jodys Crafty Creations pulled my name out the lucky hat last week and this is the wonderful pattern she sent me. ....and she designed it herself too!
Isn't he (Drafty) just adorable! I'll think I'll make him up for this winter even if I don't have any draughts ...
I like the look of him just sitting there... don't you?
He would also be perfect in a little ones room.... Oh to be a grandma ?!!?
Once again, as mentioned above..... "I'm prepared" !   lol

Thanks Jody... I LoVe him!

I can't believe how quickly the 25th has come around and caught me unprepared! Such lovely little projects, you will be so ready for Xmas.
Congratulations on the win, I agree Drafty is verrrrrry cute.

Nice door hanger and I your needle and pin purse is sweet ... a great stocking filler.
Isn't it great to think that when Christmas comes around we will all have something new to "bring out of storage". Sewing along with bloggy friends is the best part!
Drafty is adorabel too!

A few years ago I made a Christmas craft a month for each of my 8 children. It was so much fun. I gave them their big box of Christmas decorations around Thanksgiving time. It sure kept me busy but it is fun to go into their homes and see my gift being lovingly used. Keep up your momentum!

Drafty is so cute. I think I need several Draftys to drape around my drafty windows!

That is the perfect Fall runner. I cannot tell if you appliqued the leaves by hand or by machine, but they look great.
