One Christmas Item a Month

It is that time of the month again , June sure seemed to disappear . I actually had to scramble today to finish off these two little items for my Christmas box , Both stitcheries that I have shown earlier in the month are now finished projects .
The large pincushion on the left was a Friday Freebie pattern from Kaaren of the The  Painted Quilt  , a fun little project and I finished it off with some rickrack along the edge . The little tag was also a free pattern but I do not have the link for that handy , sorry . Then the other little pincushion I may have shown before but I don't think I have , anyway this was a block from a mini quilt that I had made and I found the colors blended too much so rather than throw it out I made this very tiny pincushion :-)
 Thanks to Narelle of Pins and Whiskers for hosting this monthly event , it does keep a person thinking about Christmas . Thanks for the visit and guess what , the sun is shining :-)
 hugs Sheila

  9. Lovely work Sheila, those little pincushions may not make Christmas, they would make lovely gifts all year round.

  10. Great little finishes Sheila, I adore that gift tag, and the mini block has turned out so well as a mini pincushion, brilliant idea.

  11. Pincushions are great gifts and I love how you recycled the block when it didn't work in your original project! Santa tag is so cute too!
