Christmas Sewing

This is a Christmas Stocking I made for my Secret Christmas Stocking Sister. I couldn't put the proper picture up because she may read this (not that I think anybody does! but you never know!) After Christmas, maybe I will put the proper picture up. I quite liked it and so did other members of the family and they all have an order in!

Quilt As You Go

This was done as a QAYG. Very easy and very quick. The top is cotton, the middle is a wool/polyester blend wadding and the back is polar fleece. VERY warm. Again, it was made for The Princess for her cot. It is too small for her bed. I am thinking maybe I should unsew the bottom and one side, add a row or two to make it big enough. Sounds like a lot of work actually!! She can use it as a take-it-to-the-babysitters quilt.
No piece of fabric is repeated anywhere in the quilt and I only used what I had in the stash. It isn't every piece that I own - or owned at that time - because I didn't use The Special Pieces, but it was close! I think I should have enough to make another row or two all round.. but I wont. :)
