My December Sewing

If all goes according to plan, this post should appear while we are having Christmas lunch and I won't spoil the surprise for Christmas presents.

As usual, I left my Christmas run a bit late ;-)  both for my cards (see post HERE) and for presents.

After playing nurse to Mr Fixit who had a tooth extraction on Wednesday, our Christmas shopping for presents was completed on Friday and we got our grocery shopping done online and delivered in the afternoon - no need to face the crowds ;-)

First up are pressies for the Nephews - they are both into music and have iPods - iTunes cards were the requested presents.  I couldn't just give a giftcard, so I made some cardholders to store them in.

Next up I finally finished cushions for SIL - I have had the fabric for a while now, and I first thought I had bitten off more than I could chew when saying YES to her request for cushions.

so pleased with how the zips turned out ;-)

During the month of December, I also completed some blocks for block swaps.
Log Cabin for LindaB for BSA


These lovely blocks were received from LindaB - aren't they gorgeous!

this Christmas Block from Tammy from Christmas Block Swap - isn't it fun!

this is the block I made for Tammy

this is the block I made for Dawn for QBSA - unfortunately,
I haven't heard from Dawn yet, so it is yet to be posted.



Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)
