This design is gorgeous. I bought the calenders and there is a space left up the top to embroider and embelish how you would like.
The calenders are made from a heavy material and are really hard to embroider. The machine needle gets blunt really quick but well worth the effort.

I found this Christmas Stocking panel in my stash and decided to make it for Cooper. The other 2 boys have large stockings like this one.
I used wadding between the panel and inside piece and quilted the front and to make the back piece I sandwiched wadding between 2 pieces of red fabric and quilted it on my machine. I then sewed the 2 pieces together and overlocked the seam. I finished it off with binding around the top.

I chose this table runner to make for our Christmas Gift exchange in our sewing group. It is very easy and quick to make. I love the Australian Wildflower fabric. I embroidered some bottle brush on the centre piece of the cream fabric but I didn't like so I just used the wildflower fabric. I will be making some of these for myself. Here is the link to to the table runner pattern. Check out the site for a lot of other great patterns.
Have Fun !!!

I joined a pincushion swap at http://craftybitsswapspot.blogspot.com/ . My swap partner was Ruth from the United States. I made this Biscornu pincushion for her. I did the roses in a bright pink as she likes bright colours. Thanks to Jill for organizing this swap.
