I have joined Narelle's 1 Item a month for Christmas. This is what I have achieved for the month. A tree skirt and a table topper (just needs to be quilted) and 12 christmas tea towels.

Eleana's birthday present

I made this sewing bag, pin cushion and needle case for my friend's birthday, her favorite colour was blue, she loved it.

Stitching round the block

Before Christmas I received my stitchery back. Thank you ladies for all your hard work. I love it. I am thinking of making it into a cushion, but I will think about it for a little while.

Nancy (nancynearphiladelphia.blogspot.com/) was my swap partner.

Nancy was allowed to open her small gift first, a cross stitch santa, to hang on her tree. Nancy's other parcel was to be put under the tree till Christmas day. I sent her a hand stitched table mat, a Christmas bag and a Bon Bon.

Hope you liked them Nancy.
