Welcome to Making Christmas Week 11!
Firstly, I’d like to say Thank You to all of you who have linked up and/or commented these last 11 weeks. I really appreciate all your support and encouragement with my attempt to reinstate a, partly!, handmade Christmas and I’ve been really inspired by all the wonderful projects you’ve shared. This is, of course, the last Making Christmas for this year and lots of people have already left blogland for Christmas but if you’ve got any last minute finishes you want to link do join the party.
This week I’ve just made some cushions and started to think about decorations.
I’ve also sent all my Christmas cards and bought presents!
I’ve put an X next to the bear and floor cushions because, although I haven’t ticked off everything I started with, this is much more than I’ve made for Christmas in years (and certainly more than I expected to accomplish when we started this back in October). I’m very happy with that and I’m not going to spend the next week feeling as if I should be making the bear and floor cushions!
Now my list of things I want to make in time for Christmas is looking like this:

Please link up with whatever you’ve been doing this week and remember to come back on 9th January (to get clear of the holiday weeks). As promised in my very first Making Christmas post, we’ll have a final linky party with a mosaics of everything we’ve linked to Making Christmas 2011 and a little celebration.
I’m linking this post to Rebecca Lynne as part of TTT (I’m behind on my thinking this week!)
And, finally I’ll just mention that I was lucky enough to ‘win’ a place in Katie’s Pay it Forward. This means, of course, that I’m also going to Pay it Forward At the moment, I only have two entries so if you’d like a little handmade gift from me during the next year hop over to my Pay it Forward Post and you can be the third :)
