We will be having a quiet family Christmas at home. Our planned visitors had to cancel, so I haven't felt the need to get busy in the kitchen at all. The men folk in my life don't really like cakes and biscuits, so I've been getting quite a bit of sewing done instead. I've got more time now that work, school and sports have finished for the year.

Here's a quick run down on what I've been making lately:
Yesterday I made my first ever open wide zippered pouch using the Noodlehead pattern. It was quite straight forward and I will definitely use this pattern again. I already had these fabrics in my stash so I only needed to buy the pink zip. I'll give it to my 6 year old niece for Christmas.

I finished all 3 of my Mill Hill beaded ornaments at the weekend. I love these - so sparkly and they were fun and quite quick to make (but hard to photograph due to the reflections).
I managed to catch up on my Women of the Bible blocks at the weekend. I made 4 new blocks and now they look like this:
I probably need to tone down the pink in the next ones!
Yesterday I started some more wool felt applique. It's the cover for a sewing kit that I got for my birthday back in October. I figured I better try and finish my birthday gift before new Christmas sewing projects land in my lap on Christmas day.
Yes, it's lime green with pink and purple! I hope it's going to be fantastic.
Merry Christmas to you where ever you are. I hope you have a lovely day with family and friends.
