a little Christmas stitchin

What can you do in a few spare hours?  A little Christmas project to get you into the christmassy mood!

I picked this kit up at Winterwood last week and thought she would be a very cute start to the silly season! Katherine and I got together last night for our regular Dear Jane evening. The grand plan being if we set aside time to do a block each month we may eventually finish the quilt top by the year….2029. I have, however, managed to talk Katherine into doing something else the last few Dear Jane nights (didn’t take too much convincing!) and Little Holly was the very productive result of my latest Dear Jane Procrastination Session :)

I have never attempted any wool felt projects quite like this and I really enjoyed making her. She’s quite tiny, the base being about as big as a 20 cent piece. The pattern is from De Witte Engel and there are other flowers in the series, ooh the possibilities.

Hope your Christmas preparations are full of fun and stitchin!

It looks gorgeous all finished Kylie! I could make a whole family of them - a pointsettia version, and may be a eucalypt or wattle for an Australian twist...dear, dear Jane will have to wait.

Too cute Kylie! I'm trying to imagine how small she is...a 20c piece is tiny! A whole family would be adorable...Dear Jane is not looking good :)
