ThRee GrOupS

The item I finished for
APril's Monthly Make is ...


Another "Tea Pot Cosy"...


I just LoVe this cute little pattern and thought this one would go great in a kitchen of similar colours. Hope so anyways!


Visit HERE to see all the other "monthly makes".


The second finish for April, falls into the "Christmas Through The Year" group, which is helping me to be all ready for Christmas. Visit HERE to see the other elves and their gifts.

It's a HEART... obviously...
made from red and white felt.

I've decorated it with ribbons and buttons... and I'll add some lavender in between the soft fibre filling just before giving it as a Christmas gift. It can then hang anywhere in the house... or on the tree... and should smell wonderful throughout the holidays!

It really was easy to make (just weave the felt) and I used up what embellishments I had on hand... but you could use anything... lace... ricrac... fancy stitches... etc.
Tick another GIFT off the list... hip hip hooray!
And the other finish is in... BOMs Away on Mondays.

I've completed block 4 in "The Night Before Christmas" quilt.
Still have a lot left to do but it will be all ready for Xmas.


Alphabet challenge OPENS tomorrow.

Christmas throughout the year is a good idea. I made a Christmas decoration for each of my 8 children each month one year. It was so fun to give them their own box of goodies I had been busy on all year. Your tea cozy is lovely.

Do love your red and white decorations Cheryll - especially the heart :)

Have just found out about your Mini Quilt swap and am very tempted :) But I think for the moment I will focus on sewing for my design course. I will be following along to see all the great things that people make though. Good luck :)
