New Years Resolution !!!!

My New Years Resolution is to not leave my Christmas sewing till the last minute again.  I am making these gorgeous little bags from Val Lairds Blog ( free patterns).  I am making the bags out of Christmas fabric ( a great way to use up all that fabric) and then embroidering a design with the persons name and the year 2012. I am going to make a set for all of my family and what a great gift for workmates and friends personalised with their name. Could even make some Birthday ones. The bags have plenty room for little gifts. I have made these two and still have about forty to go.  I also have some little Christmas trees to make and they will use up a lot more of bits and pieces I have lying around my sewing room. I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and may all your deams come true.

Santa, Santa Everywhere !!!!!!

I would like to wish everyone a Merry and Safe Christmas. I would also like to thank all my followers and the wonderful people that  left lovely comments on my Blog. I decided to do a Santa theme for Christmas this year. I decorated the inside of the house with Santas. I started collecting Santas as soon as the Christmas decorations where in the shops. This is a photo of my tree and all it has on it is Santas. The Santa on the top of the tree I got at the markets for $2.00. Bargain !!! I really love Christmas, it is such a wonderful time of the year to spend with the people you love.

Christmas T Shirts

Christmas T shirts that I embroidered for my grandsons. They are getting older now so it is a bit hard to find designs for them.
I thought that my 14 year old might like the black one with the writting on it as it seems to be the fashion at the moment. The other one is for a 8 year old so he will love the green one. I did these last night for the FNSI.
