Ho Ho Ho

Ho Ho Ho and lots of Christmas cheer.

I have been really busy, but of course it is all Christmas pressie sewing that I can't show you much of.

Well... except maybe for this cute table topper that I whipped up this afternoon using a Mini Moda Charm pack that the lovely Di sent to me a while ago.  I just felt like sewing all the little squares together and then quilting it simply too.  I did it this way for speed, but now it's finished I really love it.  Sometimes, I guess it is okay to make it simple when it comes to lovely quilting cottons.

Mini Charm Christmas Table Topper

I had some very festive {but a bit glittery} holly fabric that I wanted to use up, so it was perfect for the back of the Topper.

Now that it is all quilted, I am actually quite fond of it and it will be handy to have a reversible side for putting actual food on, with the other side reserved as eye candy.

And I guess I could show you this tote bag that I made for a very special friend of mine who deserves a little fabric treat.  A few fat quarters from the new Julia Rothman fabric *Type* landed on my doorstep yesterday  and I just couldn't wait to cut into it.

I went for a {rustic} style tote with a front pocket and three poppers.

Fingers crossed that it makes her smile.

I also managed to finish up a very special Mug Rug.

I followed a pattern by The Patchsmith which is available here.

If you need an extra quick little gift, then you should definitely check out her patterns.  They are totally great.

I will definitely be stocking up on a few more of her fab patterns because it is totally gorgeous and I think my friend is going to love it.  I added some hand quilting round the elephant and an extra border.

Cheerio for today.
Merry Christmas Eve Eve
