Christmas Gifts

Last night was the last Friday Night Sew In for the year and I managed to get another Christmas Gift finished off.  So here it is - another Tiny Token Gift Bag. 
I also finished these Christmas Birds off earlier in the week too. 

I can now also show you what I send my partner in The Great Global Christmas Swap.  This is a Sweet Box (which I filled with chocolates!) designed by Red Brolly.  I also sent her one of my Santa's Little Helpers' patterns and also a stitchery design by Rosalie Quinlan. 

I have really enjoyed making these Christmas Gifts.  It really gets you into the whole spirit of Christmas - although at times I didn't think I would get everything finished on time!  But that just adds to all the excitement of Christmas - doesn't it!  I still have two more gifts to finish off - and these are for my kids.  I have a week left - so I'm pretty sure I should get them done, as one just requires stuffing and the other is all prepared and ready for sewing.  How are you all going with your Christmas preparations?
Have a lovely day and Happy Sewing!

Tiny Token Gift Bags

For the Friday Night Sew In last night I worked on a few christmas gifts and one that I managed to finish was a Tiny Token Gift Bag. 

This is from Natalie Ross's book 'Get red red ready for Christmas'. So one gift finished and I still have a few more to go!  Hopefully I'll get them finished in time for Christmas. 
Happy Sewing!
