Monday Makings

In a bit of a panic the holiday mood, I did some baking and sewing today....
here is a peek at my work bench kitchen table...


Not so bad?  Not so fast - here it is from a different angle....


wonder where we are eating tonight?
I am making some needle books for my nieces....hope they aren't reading this....
the tutorial is from nanacompany.  If you haven't visited her site she has some very sweet things.
The embroidery transfers are Jenny Hart...


A little stitching and a little patchwork....


Some felt pages for pins, needles, buttons, etc....
  

Do you think of more to make just as the day draws near???


Happy Monday!

What a purr-fect little cat that is! I just cannot keep up with all your making...

I am wrestling with quilting a UFO - obviously wool batting and thick flannel backing are not a good mix!

Creative clutter is better than tidy idleness. Your kitchen table looks to be full of wonderful creativity. The needle cases are delightful!

I love all your beautiful creations. I would like to know, if possible, where you got the pattern//templates for the pickledish? I adore your pickledish swap gift and would like to make one.
Wishing you and your family a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year.

At the moment in our house it's a matter of I wonder who is cooking tonight, lol. I think the needlecase is superb, love the cat. Thanks for the link, I'm saving that one.

I love the needle books, very cute and useful.

Yes, sadly I also think of more things to make as the day draws near, I finally finished tonight and made the decision that no matter what great idea pops into my head I will try to ignore it ;)

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
