Wipe Out

Second weekend of December I was sidelined by a virus that turned into a chest infection and hung around for the rest of the month and into the early new year.  Consequently I didn't finish as much Christmas sewing as I would have liked but, thankfully, I had most of the Secret Santa presents made that I needed to send to Teresa.

I didn't take photos of the smaller Advent presents, only the Christmas Day gifts:

"Super Tote" designed by Noodlehead


"Sew Together Bag" designed by Sew Demented

I received the most wonderful gifts from Lorraine:

Days 1 and 2:  Christmas Tea Towels and Christmas Coasters
Day 3:  Christmas Potholders
Days 4 and 5:  Ornament (pink antlers and tiara) and Clotted Cream Fudge

Christmas Day's present was this fabulous Doctor's Bag in beautiful Union Jack/UK fabric - so beautifully made and Lorraine also sent some coins in the zipper pocket.

I made each of my sweethearts a pair of Christmas pj's

 and a couple of little dresses for ChaCha with patterns I'd made for her mother and auntie.

Finished off a couple of Annie Downs decorations for the sweethearts

and a Christmas stocking for Kurt to add to the family swag that hangs in the loungeroom.
