Making Christmas Week 4

Welcome to Week  4 of MAKING CHRISTMAS

Thank you all for linking up and leaving comments last week! 

I can’t believe it’s week 4 already. Having got off to a good start with finishing the hexie cushion and making the elephant apron, I’ve come to a bit of a standstill lately but I’m telling myself not to worry because it’s not (quite!) even November yet. Although I’m not progressing so well as I’d hoped, there’s still plenty of time left.

 
This week I’ve made a small decoration.
 

Unfortunately, the flash drained all the colour from the fabric. It actually looks quite bright and cheerful in real life. I’m wondering if my partner in the Table Runner Swap would like – I know she likes wonky trees :) – it but I’m going to try to get a photo in daylight to post to the flickr group so she can get a better idea of what it really looks like
 

 For the time being, I’m going to put a ? against it so now my list of things I want to make in time for Christmas is looking like this:
