Welcome to MAKING CHRISTMAS, 2013, WEEK 11.
I had originally thought about posting a tute today but I think we’ve all got plenty enough to finish off without starting anything new right now! If not, there is, of course, a wonderful collection of tutes and projects on the Pinterest board. I think I’ll have to start making for next Christmas in January – there are so many things I’ve seen during this Hop that I’ve book marked to make! Here are a couple of things that caught my eye from last week. Clicking on the pictures should take you to the right blog post.
I’ve pretty much finished up my list, now, but I can’t show a couple of things until after Christmas and my final updated list looks like this:
THINGS I WANT TO MAKE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Finish felt bird and heart decorations – to do for Easter instead!
Rainbow Hare Rolls – 4 FINISHED
Pouches – 5 FINISHED
Cushion Covers – 2 FINISHED
Something to be decided with my son’s logo on – Something different (secret) finished!
Knitted Scarf – FINISHED
Knitted Shawlette – started and undone… and re-started
Wall Quilt – added FINISHED
Secret Gift (bird organiser) – added FINISHED
Tea Towels – added 4 FINISHED
Felted knitting mittens – added 3 PAIRS FINISHED
Winter Doll- added FINISHED
Birthday Gift – added FINISHED
Mittens (not felted) – 1 PAIR FINISHED
Quilt – FINISHED
Secret Gift – FINISHED
Good luck with anything you’ve got left to finish up this week and CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who has joined in for making so many wonderful things. And a big THANK YOU to everyone for all your inspiration and encouragement. I’m sure I wouldn’t have made nearly as much without all your friendly comments :)
On January 11th 2014 – A winner will be randomly selected from the link ups for a prize.
KRISTY from Quiet Play and ALYCE from Blossom Heart Quilts have kindly offered a copy of their wonderful Christmas patterns – Sew Seasonal/Ornamental. Soma from Whims and Fancies has generously offered two stunning paper pieced patterns and I will give a yard of fabric – probably four fat quarters. I think I’ll wait to see who wins and try to choose something I think they’ll like.
In the meantime, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

You made great progress on your list Janine, thanks for organising such a great Blog Hop! It has definitely helped to keep me on track :)
those are some really cute makes, Janine! I agree that Christmas making needs to be started earlier next year. =) thanks so much for the link party and encouragement.
Awesome fun! Thanks so much for putting it together and keeping us all straight! :)
I really had fun putting my projects on this and have already started thinking about 2014 from some great ideas I saw on various blogs. Thank you very much for this.
Making Christmas was great, Janine! Thank you so much for arranging it.
Thanks for hosting Making Christmas I've loved joining in.
Thank you so much for hosting Making Christmas Janine, I really don't think I would have made half of what I have with the linkups and comments from everyone!
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas xxx
I'm glad I joined you in. I actually managed to make 3 more cushion covers but I'll share that later on since I already gave it to my mom without taking a picture :-) Merry Christmas!
Wow! Well done on all your lovely finishes, I really enjoying seeing what everyone's made. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!!

Thank you so much for this Blog Hop/Linky party. It has been so fun and not at all stressful! Thank you also for featuring my Lollipops and recycled wine boxes this week. Wishing you a fantastic Christmas and a very special New Year!
Can't wait to see the other makes after Christmas :) Great job on your list!
