AnotHeR MiNi

I love making hanging mini's...and this one by Gail Pan is a real cute one.
Gail's pattern is called ReD BirD at ChrisTMas (although my feathered friend is a BLuE BirD)
& it's in her 2013 Simply Christmas Book.

Thanks Narelle for letting me come & play with you each month!
To see what the other "elves" made this month...visit here...

Narelle's personal blog is called Pins & Whiskers over here.

Ho Ho Ho...

ChrisTMas Gift

I saw this scrumptious fabric & decided to make an apron as a Christmas gift with it.
I trimmed it with ReD and added a cute "BuTTon" on the pocket.
Yes... I'm very HaPPy with it... so into the box it goes!

I am linking up with Anthea over HERE for 
Christmas Thru The Year.

BooK It as a PIF

Covering two birds with the one post here... perhaps not quite the correct quote but you get the idea... but I have had a pattern by Hatched & Patched called Friendship Bag for years.
I decided to make it & add it as part of my PIF gift to Kim from HERE.
It's a cute little bag to hold a project ( 7.1/2in x 10in) with an outside sissor keeper pocket.
Kim let me know it arrived safely... & she liked it.

My THANKS must go to Sharon from HERE for encouraging us to dust off & use "old" books & patterns each month. I love this little cutie & will be making more of them in the future.
I'll link this post to "Lets Book It" at the end of the month.
