Christmas Bandana Bibs

A friend posted on Facebook about the bibs she was making for a relative, and I thought what a great idea.

We will have two little ones this year, my great nephew - 22 months old, and my great niece, only 10 months old.

So I pulled out some Christmas fabric and made them each two little bandana bibs.

Nice and festive for Christmas dining for the little ones.

Christmas Crafting

It has been so long since I have used my sewing machine, so it was with great delight that I made my niece a Christmas Reindeer .  This is one of my own patterns and is quick and easy to make and I just love the finished result.

Do you believe I do not even have one of these reindeers in my own Christmas display.  I think every time I make one, someone else wants it.  No more excuses, I must make another. Whether or not it gets done for this year, is another story.
Are you ready for Christmas

Birthday Card

One of my nieces had a birthday yesterday, and this is the card that I made for her.  It uses the Memory Box Grand Happy Birthday Die and "The Mice Girls" buttons from "Dress It Up"

The little mice were just right for her as she has her own pet mice, here is a photo of one of them.  So much cuter than the horrible household mice. 

Cindy, my little 10 month old pup with her pain relief bandage.  She is recovering well.

Incredible to think there is only 9 days until Christmas, I have so much I want to do before then.  Fingers crossed all the little projects will get completed in time.

Are you organised, or are you like me, and leave things until the last moment?

Christmas Cards

I have made all my Christmas cards this year, each one unique.  Next year I think I may decide on a theme and make the same card with a lot of different colourways.  Do you make your own cards?

Card 1.  - Using Christmas Sleigh die from Kaisercraft

Card 2 - Using Happy Christmas die from Kaisercraft

Card 3 - Stamped card, using Santa stamp from Verses Stamp Company, and Snowflake stamp from Kaisercraft

Reminder - my online store is closing in just ONE weeks time - if you want a bargain, pop on over and have a look.

Stamps, Kaisercraft Dies, lots of buttons and rusty bells still available

Until next time

I'm Back!

I cannot believe how neglected my blog has become.  I am so sorry, I am trying to think of excuses, but I really do not have a valid one ....:)

Lots of changes in my life, my pup is growing however not without a few issues.  She has been suffering from Pancreatitis which is taking her a long time to recover from.  Special diet, and lots of love and patience.

She was well enough to have her first Santa photo taken, so cute (but then I am biased)

My crafting has consisted of card making, I have made a lot of Christmas cards, but did not take any photos, dash.  However I have made some Birthday cards with a lovely "Happy Birthday" die that my sister gave me for my birthday.  It makes quick and easy cards.

Hopefully 2017 will be a great year for crafting.  I am closing my online store in another 2 weeks, after 15 years of trading and once I have settled down after Christmas I hope to get into some serious sewing.  

If I still have any blog followers, thank you for staying with me during my long absences

Till next time
