Whilst you’re there, don’t forget to link up with your updated lists and your makes. Every time you link up you’ll get another entry for the randomly drawn prize and I’m only pinning to the Pinterest board from posts that have linked up :)
Here is my updated list:
THINGS I WANT TO MAKE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Crow ornaments for Halloween – 3 FINISHED
Finish felt bird and heart decorations
Rainbow Hare Rolls – 4 FINISHED
Pouches – 5 FINISHED
Cushion Covers – 2 FINISHED
Something to be decided with my son’s logo on
Knitted Scarf – FINISHED
Knitted Shawlette – started and undone…
Wall Quilt – added FINISHED
Secret Gift – added FINISHED
Tea Towels – added 4 FINISHED
I’ve made a couple of cushion covers from some ufo cross stitch pieces I made long ago and some fabrics from a home dec scrap bag I bought for £5…
…and I made some tea towels from the same scrap bag fabric. They’ll replace some old ones which have got very shabby and make our house a bit more presentable for Christmas visitors
See you at Whims and Fancies :)

Pretty makes. You made a LOT. Good for you! Are you going to tell us about the way you are hanging your towels? :-)
Love those towels!
I like your pillows! Especially that red snowflake one. :) Way to go on your list! This Making Christmas thing has been super encouraging for me so thank you for starting it. (and psst… my name is Elizabeth and not Kristan) Have an awesome week!
Well done everyone x
Loving the cushion x
Brilliant makes indeed – what a fabulous collection of goodies – the fish – OMG THE FISH! And yes, I agree with Vera – how DID you do the dish towels so they hang from the stove handle?! Is it a doubled loop you stitched to the side so the towel itself can be threaded through it … ?? So cute!
Lovely projects by all! I rarely make lists, as I am more of the “spur of the moment” kind of sewist, but I do like to see others' completed lists!
Your cushions are perfect! And I love those tea towels, ours are looking really shabby and not very chic, I might have to add a few to my list!!!
Thank you so much for inviting me! I have been pulling out blocks from my finished stash lately and finishing projects with them. Your cushions look so pretty, love the bright colors. And look at your list, you are almost done!
Janine. I thought I was linking up to your blog when I add a link to my post. Do I need to do something different? I am new to this. Thanks

i love the cushions you made, the left-hand one is really beuatiful, where did you get the pattern from?
Thank you very much, Janine, for the mention on your blog. The towels are very lovely, the material is pretty and fresh looking, and your cushions look good.

Your tea towels are really posh and I really like your idea for using cross stitch pieces.
