Making Christmas Week 9

Welcome to Week  9  of MAKING CHRISTMAS  and Thank You to everyone who joined in last week :)

Two weeks of Making Christmas left!
I haven’t finished as many things this week, although I’ve done quite a bit of sewing, off and on – none of it connected to my original list!
1. I’ve made some progress on the Blue and Cream Quilt this week – but I really must make this priority sewing now to get it finished. 



2. I also made a Small Brown Hare which is going to count as a Christmas decoration until after Christmas when he can become a general decoration.


3. On Friday morning I came to my lap top to write a TTT  post to link up with Rebecca Lynne and I found I  had no internet connection. This happens quite a lot here, especially during the Winter, but it tends to resolve itself after a few hours. Then I received a completely surprising present – a Ruby Layer Cake (a very funny thing to happen as I had considered buying one and decided against it). So I started sewing and I sewed and sewed all day and all night until I had made this:

I think I’m going to call it ‘Ruby Butterfly’and have it as a sofa throw – What do you think? I think it might be a good project for some coloured hand quilting like inspired by Mary at Molly Flanders.
I never did get to writing that TTT post so I think I’ll save my thoughts for that to link up this week but do go and check out Rebecca Lynne’s blog – she’s made Christmas already and her her house is looking fabulous.

4. I also made a Dog Blanket for Lucy, which she is going to have either for Christmas or before if the weather turns really cold. 

5. And finally, I made this with a strip left over from Lucy’s blanket (waste not:want not!):
I’m not quite sure where I’m going to put it yet but every Christmas I seem to be searching about for ribbon so I’m sure I can use it somewhere!


Now my list of things I want to make in time for Christmas is looking like this:
