...weather wise that is. Our mild dry Autumn has suddenly evaporated and been replaced by low temperatures, high winds, rain, hail, storms and the promise of snow to come - all fury let loose. We have innocently been taken by surprise, misled to the proximity of Christmas by such a placid November. Those young things, who only last week sported T-shirts and shorts have suddenly vanished into oblivion.
These grey afternoons have really been well put to use and I have been sorting out fabrics and patterns to make some small Christmas items.
I´m going to make a table runner with these colours and will use other fabric oddments to make some ornaments.
I´ve been hunting around for some tiny ric rac ribbon but it doesn´t seem available here unless you want pale blue or pink, not very Christmassy at all. However I did find these cuties which insisted on coming home with me.
Here are a few more photos of the Christmas tree skirt which I made for my grandchildren.
This perhaps is my favourite little shop as I enjoyed sewing the various jars of sweets. I also like the dog with his Xmas hat.
This is the gift shop.
This is the sushi house with a hungry cat outside.
This photo shows the backing fabric with a small label, I wonder if you can spot it?. I hope they like this gift, it was great fun making it and hopefully they might remember me when each Christmas comes around.
Until next time.
