My Christmas box is starting to fill up....




I thought I'd start making Christams gifts early for next year and put aside in a special handmade Christams basket.I took photo's of these projects that I've been working on over the last couple of days and have now found their new home in it.
The red and white mini cushion I made using the scraps from the Valentine Pennie Pockets I've been working on.
The mini handbag I made by using up the leftover charm squares I'd used for my sewing machine mat and cover,then I used the leftover strips from the bag to make up the mini cushion to go with it.I've been trying to use what's in my stash and I think I succeeded with these two proects.
Hopefully by November next year the basket will be over flowing and I may need to buy another basket???? Here's hopeing!

What a great idea for using your scraps Barb! The red and white one is quite stunning and the basket and matching cushion are really lovely too. Lovely colours.

You really astound me with your stamina I am yet to get really motivated with my machine at the moment, (it could be that it is 36C and 10 pm indoors at the moment.

You are so good, where does all this motivation come from, I am barely over this christmas and to have to start thinking about next christmas gives me the shivers. I love your idea of a christmas box though and a soon as I can get used to the idea I will start to fill it.
Love Jillx
p.s Hope you and yours have a great new year. xx
