And breathe......

The last week has flown by and I finally feel like I can take a breathe. The boys finished school on Friday and the weekend was spent swapping presents with friends and generally rushing around.

Today I have spent indoors wrapping the last of the presents, whilst it has been grey and wet outside.
I have finished a few of my Christmas projects and have really wanted to get on the computer and share them with you.


I got this fantastic Alexander Henry fabric called 'All dash away' and as I'm having a complete addiction to Christmas cushions it had to be made into one. It's not from this years designs but I've really loved this pattern for a while and got it from this shop on Folksy.

Then I managed to knuckle down and finish my cross stitch and that also had to become a.......

Yes, you've guessed it, another cushion!
This was a design by Emily Peacock,  Christmas Cross Stitch which was in CrossStitcher Magazine. It's my first real cross stitch  and I have loved every minute of it. It was designed as an apron, but I feel that I will get more pleasure from it being a cushion. Although no-one is aloud to actually use it, it must sit and look pretty ;-) .
I have to say, I fear the addiction is also including pom pom trimmings and polka dot are their backs!


Lastly I have finished my red NOEL. They took longer than these ones, but I also had so many others projects being juggled at the same time.

They were meant to be for my Godmother, but she left for a cruise on Friday and I only got them sewn together this morning!!! So that means they can spend this year with me and it gives me plenty of time to make a set for her next year. 
I hope you are all enjoying the last few days before Christmas and are not too stressed. It is wonderful to see everyones preparations for Christmas on Blogland and to see the wonderful different ways everyone celebrates. xx


  1. Beautiful beautiful festive projects - your cushions all look amazing and I love that noel! Nice work, Joanne!!!!

    As for the heartfelt rings, a woman of your talent could definitely whip one up in less than 20 mins - it's actually quite relaxing!

    If I don't comment again this week, hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Wow!!!
    I love everything you've made!!!!
    My favourite is the reindeer cushion- awesome!!!

  3. Oooohh love that fabric and your cross stitch cushion is absolutely stunning. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.xxxx

  4. Wow those cushions are awesome, I love them! And you know I'm coveting some knitted Noel's from afar... I really should get back into knitting, but I think I've forgotten how to be honest... I haven't knitted anything since I was at high school (and that was some time ago)

  5. I LOVE the NOEL cushions! Wow! They are beautiful.

  6. Oh how I adore the cross stitch pillow that you created!! I am having a tough time locating that magazine, to be purchased in the US. Do you have any suggestions? I would love to create that dear pattern.
    Have a nice day.
    Sincerely, Trish
