November is always such a busy time. I've been sewing like a mad person and I love it! I have some more stocking designs which I never got round to making. Yesterday i mailed off a whole lot of orders (previously blogged) so I allowed myself to make up some of my new designs. I still have more but I won't get them all done for Christmas this year.

Wow I finally caught up with my Christmas stocking orders. This week has been a whirlwind! Here are some of the orders I made. One client ordered some very big stockings for her kids - Santa will have to work very hard to fill those!!!

The last few days I have been working on these lovely stocking. The themes are based on my client's requests so I hope I interpreted them correctly! It's always great working on something someone has requested as it opens up new possibilities and designs you hadn't thought of.

I took some time out of the order I'm working on to complete these two sweet Christmas cones. One is a red embroidery on antique linen and the other a sweet reindeer applique on felt similar to my Christmas decoration I made. These are great to hang on the tree (or around the house) with nuts or candy cane in them, or even with a small gift.

I started these poor girls about 2 months ago. They've sitting around waiting for a hair do since September. Finally I bit the bullet and finished them! I used linen, antique linen and vintage trims on these lovely Christmas angels.

Hello Christmas friends! Well my favourite time is nearly here and of course I've gone into delirium
trying to get things done! I thought these cute little guys would be great stocking fillers or just cute sitting on the window sill, on the mantel or on the table!
They all have antique linen faces combined with lovely cotton fabrics. The dog is new I wanted to try him out and think he's really cute! I made him in my favourite coulours red and linen!

Some new sweet lavender rattles. These little guys will be participating in great gift bags put together by a photographer in the States. I agreed to make 4 rattles for boys and 4 for girls to go in her gift bags. Christina puts together great baskets so pop over and have a look. Oh and of course I took the opportunity to make some extra for my shop!
