one more sleep till the big fat bloke comes down your chimney and,........

Its almost here and we are all busy, having a making day,the three littlest people have been practising their foot pedal- needle up-needle down skills on these little snowmen, a very thought full gift from the quilters guild.

Mr Bear desperately needed a poncho for when he goes camping with the cubs[apparently,I have to make some miniature badges]
and so did little dotty bear,

meanwhile the taller short people' set to and did some baking,they are getting quite good at it.
which is just as well
as they have baked every day this week- and every day every scrap has been eaten,
 I had intended to show you a lot more stuff but blogger is refusing to load anything more up, so goodbye for now and have a lovely Christmas........Tina

just a quickie...

still, wrapping, and coughing ,but tonight I have been binding  a quilt for the smallest pink fairy in the house,
its lovely,with little ballerinas all over it and the tiniest delicate quilting around each figure and a lovely snugly brushed cotton on the back -did I make it?
I wish I did, but no.     Trudi from quilts prolifically made it for her smallest fairy, but shes not so small anymore and shes given it to me
all I have to do is bind it, what a lovely gift- makes me wish  I was 8 years old again,
thank you Trudi.
And whilst I stitch, I will watch Bad Santa, ooh, hes a very bad Santa..

and the winners are....

the partys over.....
and the winners are
plumcox and
annabelle serendipity...

As you can see ,I have added some stitch and stuff, hope you like them..
and whilst I was sewing,
and coughing and sneezing.......

The short fairies in the house made these.

Funny how some height challenged people can become so helpfull the week before christmas.

do you like my posh table runner?
one day I will make my own but right now I like the restraint and uniformity of this.

HA! like I even know what that means.....
bye for now- off to cough...
