This is nearly all of them now!

A few more projects I have been working on. First up is a little friendship pot from a tutorial on PS I Quilt. I used scraps left over from making my sister's quilt - this really is a fabulous "use your scraps" project.

It was made for Lou, whose house we went to end November for a day of scrapping. It was such a lovely day filled with laughter - I managed to get *most* of my Christmas cards made - think that was the most organised I've been in years!

This is the quilt I've made mum for Christmas - again from "There's a Square in There" by Kate Conklin. Very similar to mine, this has been made exclusively with Amy Butler fabrics - the white sashing is 100% cotton sheets from Asda

This is another coin quilt (from the Moda Bakeshop Tutorial) made using Moda "Blush" fabrics. I loved this line as a scrapbooking range & was thrilled when I heard that Moda would be releasing them as fabrics. Made for our neighbour's daughter who is 3 months older than our twins. Her mum admired the coin quilts I'd made for the twins so I knew this would be a great Christmas pressie

The reverse of the quilt (with our cat Phoebe getting in on the action!!)

And finally for today, the Christmas Tree skirt I made using a fabulous tutorial by Amanda Jean. It was made to be tied around the real tree we have every year. However, when we looked at dates, it would have been too early to get one this year so we ended up getting a false tree. I was disappointed at first but, to be fair, when it's all decorated as it is now, it looks fine. The only issue I have is that the hole I cut is way too big for the tinsy tiny "trunk" on a false tree. Ho hum

PS I also made some pot holders for my sister's mother in law who will be there this Christmas but wrapped them earlier today and had forgotten to take a photo. Will try on Christmas day

oh my - you have been busy! I also made my Christmas cards - It was entertaining, but I prefer quilting a quilt, than quilting postcards! I will be posting them in a couple of days:
