Making a start on.....

some Christmas sewing.    When I was blog hopping the other week I saw these adorable Christmas tree trivets and knew that I had to make one or two or 12.    I am sure that they would be equally as cute if you used autumnal fabric.

If you would like to make your own cute forest of  trivets pop over to

Last year I was shown how to make this cute Christmas tree by one of ladies at my quilting group.

I posted a photo of the tree on a forum that I belong to and had many requests to do a tutorial which can be found at

If you decide to make some of the trees and have a problem please contact me and hopefully I can help.

And last but not least is this cute stocking.   I can see a few more of these being made before Christmas.  I think that it is just the right size for a stocking - not too big to fill.

I am pleased to say that I did make a bit of a dent in the Christmas fabric scrap pile.

How is your Christmas sewing going???

Some lovely ideas there! LOve the Christmas tree skirt. I have made a Gail Pan hexie mat in red and white with stitched reindeers on it. I am currently stitching a red and white table runner with elves on it from the same book.
