Finishes for August....

 I finally finished the last four bon bon stitcheries and put them together, so that makes a total of eight and another project of my UFO list :)
I finished stitching this candle mat and finally found some time to put it together this morning, this one is going into the Christmas gift basket. I have another one of these traced out and ready to work on and this one when I finish it will be for me :) I have three more finishes but as they are secret sewing for a couple of swaps I'm in you'll have to wait for full disclosure pictures till the middle of September as I don't want to spoil the surprise for my partners.......
What Christmas items are you working on at the moment, are you like me and love to work on Christmas projects throughout the year?

You have been very busy with Christmas already. hehehe I have not even given it a thought because I am still busy with my crazy quilt. Must say just love these bon bons and also loooove the candle mat. I just love anything reindeer, and will be adding some to my Christmas decor this year and in future. Esp thinking of the Christmas song Rudolph the red nosed Reindeer. Huge hugs.

I love all the Bon Bons you habe made. HOw many are there all up? I have just finished making the same little Gail Pan mat myself only I did it all in red stitchery. It was so quick to stitch. I didn't put binding around the edge, just brought the fabric over from the backto the front and stitched it , like we made the hexies for the
hexie swap.
