Early Bird Christmas Crafting

I found Judith's Early Bird Christmas Crafting and wanted to join in the fun as I really enjoy all kinds of different crafts and, like so many, good intentions of starting early nearly always disappear. I needed a blog, so here goes!

I have made my Christmas journal, along with various mini gifts ready to be stashed away in my Christmas box and I'm looking forward to trying new patterns and techniques as the weeks progress.

I've made a lavender bag using a vintage napkin that belonged to my Mum. A scissor keeper and a brooch.

This is a needlecase decorated in Stumpwork/needlelace

Scented hotpads decorated with Sashico with a folded ribbon and beaded napkin holder

A purse

Challenge - making something from 2 fat 1/8ths
Hope this beaded brooch qualifies.

  3. Congratulations on the win and it was certainly warranted. Don't know how you find the time to do all those things, but it is worth it.
