The Charm of Cherry Christmas....

When it comes to shoppe sewing, I try to think a few months ahead....try....
but when I saw Aneela Hoey's new line of Christmas fabrics...
I didn't have to think at all...it is just adorable!!!  So several cuts came home with me :)


I mixed in a little Essex linen and some perle cotton....


spiced it up with some rik-rak and ball fringe....


 but I couldn't stop with just a stocking....this is too darn cute!

so a little patchwork fun...

and some petite dresdens are occupying my machine right now!



Dresdens are so yummy!
Happy Tuesday!
