Making Christmas Week 10!!

Firstly, I just want to say thank you to Janine and Rebecca for creating/organising Making Christmas, because as I realised yesterday, other than my homemade bits….. 
I still have everything to buy, wrap, write, send and do!!! 
And, although there is a certain reader (Miss Katy!) who would rather I stop reminding her, we only have 10 days to go! 
So, I had a massive online splurge last night and hopefully everything was purchased! Except for a limited edition rugby ball that you can only buy from Saracens the week before the match, from the actual shop!! And I bet the bloody elves get the thanks! Sorry, mad mothers Christmas rant over!  


Anyhoo, I've got the Doll's House Mat finished this week! And I am so so so excited about it, I just hope Miss Rose is…..
Only a peek for now as I want to give it a proper post. 
It's also generated another thing for the list, as I now need to make these fabrics into one of these fabulous drawstring bag for the critters to live in. 

Trudi has started quilting the Swoon! I can't wait to see it! I need to get the binding fabric ordered and into binding so it's good to go as the quilt gets back. 

The list so far….
Swoon Quilt for the Parents - It's with Trudi!!!!! 
Hootenanny Quilt for Son No.2 - Finished

  2. I can't wait to see the playmat finished too, and like i said on IG, i need a full list of hints and tips on making, as I have the panel now- you inspired me!! :o)

  3. Lalalalalala, can't hear you ;o) Yep, 2 Christmas parties in, and I'm still in denial :oD

  4. The dolls house mat looks brilliant Joanne, what a pain about the special edition rugby ball.
