Have you got your Christmas tree up and decorated? We did ours last weekend, and then tried to find places for all the Santas! This getting more difficult each year - I keep telling myself that I do not need any more Santa's but there is always ''just the one'' that I have to have.

This past week I have finished the sixth redwork Christmas block - sweet little birds gathering holly.

Also, Sally's two friends have joined her - this is Susie and Mary.

Thought I would show you a few of the little treats I have at the moment - these utterly gorgeous little glass jars - love the little preserving ones - filled with buttons or braids maybe. Decorations for your sewing room!

Little tins - for more buttons!

Divine vintage ribbon and cord. I have my eye on those spools!

Aren't these just the most beautiful angels in the world! They are about 10'' long and handpainted by Barb ( Theodora Cleave designs) - a fabulous Christmas treat.

We had Bag Club again this week and here's the neat little shoulder satchel we made. I know that quite a few of these may well be made up in time for Christmas!

We have our final Christmas Club of the year next week - am looking forward to stitching some lovely little ornies, designed by Marg Low. I will show you a picture of them next week. Have fun decorating and stitching this week.
