Early Bird Christams crafting: No.3

I've had this pincushion made up for a while so last night while watching TV I stuffed it and sewed the opening close.I used some of the left over fabric from my elf wall hanging to make it up.The pattern is from a Gail Pan freebie found on her blog and I think I'll be making a few more in diferent colourways for Christmas presents this year.

I put these together a week ago and today was perfect to take an outside photo of them.It's been dreary and raining on and off all week,perfect sewing weather.

Linda's block.......charm square BOM

This is the second block I've made in this swap so far.A much easier block than the first one called "a nine patch with a twist"........not so many grey hairs produced due to this one lol.
I'll post a photo of the block Ruth made for when it arrives in my hot little hands.

Early Bird Christmas Crafting......1st finish

Finally I can put a photo up of one of the items I've been working on, a heat pack for a friend who suffers from bad back pains.I was hopeing over this long weekend to get lots fininished and of my to-do list for the Early Bird Christmas sewing but my machine wouldn't cooperate! With the help of mt sister Anne today we discovered that when I changed my needle (late) last night I didn't read the number size properly and put the wrong sized needle in my machine for the material I was using it for which caused the thread to break and lots of skipped stitches grrrrr.

I hope to have a few more things finished over this week and if I do I'll post more photo's on Friday :)

What's on my hook??

I've been bitten by the crochet bug.After finishing my granny rug (see below) I wanted to start another one but different to the last one so this Friday I went shopping and Saturday I started working on this rug.

This pretty pink rug is going to be a present for someones birthday early next year.I hope she likes it?

Early Bird Christmas Crafting.......My journal

I've joined in Judith's early bird Christmas Crafting at deciding to resurrect the journal I made last year for this purpose as I didn't use it as much as I wanted or planned to last year.Hopefully with encouragement and great ideas from Judith and the other participants I'll be even more organised for Christmas this year.

No more late night shopping Christmas eve for me this year! If you're interested in joining in the fun just pop over to Judith's blog and join up.
