Starting work on the Christmas swaps….

I have joined two Christmas themed swaps. I am away for the next couple of days so thought it would be an opportunity to start work on the applique for my projects. I have started off using some patterns from Nancy Halvorsen….I am trying out the exact projects first and then may produce my own work derived from the main pattern….mainly as I probably need to use some fabrics with a more modern colour range.

St.Nicholas Swap – I need to produce a Christmas related sewing item that is fairly small…..I am working on two different appliques to be incorporated into my items.

Gingerbread Angel

Long bearded St.Nicholas

Trim the Tree Handmade Ornament Swap – I need to produce a single handmade ornament for 3 partners. My partners all have different tastes so I need to do some research. It would be good to a get one or two out the way now.
