I have joined Judith Tetley`s early bird xmas sewing and have finished the first months assignments. It has been a fun thing to do and easily achieved in the month. Thankyou Judith for starting the xmas sewing.

First we had to make a journal to record to whom we will be giving each gift to. As yet I can`t decide who will get the first months gifts, but plenty of time to decide.

This is what I have made. Tea and coffee coasters, bookmarks and a couple of key rings.

We were then asked to make something extra and I chose to make a pin cushion and scissor holder but with a twist. One side holds the scissors and you turn it over and I have added a needle case to the scissor case so that I dont keep misplacing one or the other. See below the reverse side of the case.

So far very easy and enjoyable and I am hoping that Judith will be giving us some simple little patterns to make up for 2, 3, and 4 year olds to play with, only time will tell.
Bye for now and happy sewing.

Jude, that was clever to incorporate the needle case on the back of the scissor holder. Looks good.
