Christmas Is Coming

I am sadly so far behind this year in my prep for Christmas despite having had all my cards done in a flurry back last January. I know that's a bit early but I had bought stuff in the sales etc and just got down to then and there. That however should have been a warning as that's all I managed to get sorted and now its December the 8th and I have still got so much to sort out.  I had plans to make various items none of which I have done. for example a table cloth, place mats, a stocking, pressie bags, etc etc. Last year by this time Id made bunting some present sacks, decorated my cakes and wrapped all the presents. Well never mind it'll all wait until next year, ha ha ha.

I did manage to get these two items done though. 

The patchwork heart is lightly cinnamon scented very Christmasy. It was fairly easy to make and used up lots of small bits of Christmas material too small to be used for other projects. I got this idea from my good friend Stella who is a patchwork demon.

The stocking is a trial run for a cutlery holder for the Christmas dining table. Its a bit too long so the next batch I make will be a bit shorter and the decoration might change too not sure I like the two tone holly. I shall be making these for next Christmas 

I hope you like them.
