Christmas sewing and stitching

Christmas is my favourite time of the year - I love everything about it!  Here are a few of my new projects .......
 The 'cookie plate crumb catcher' was a design 
Check out her variations of this design - quite lovely!
Making this I learned that I'm still not very good at
making the star block.  This was the first time I'd ever
applied binding to an octagonal shape and it was a breeze - whew!
There were no cookies in our home so a wee plate of
brownies had to suffice.

 Santa is one of a whole series of snow globes from here
I'm currently working on the winter one.

Something different for my Merry Christmas redwork.

My Victorian cone.

Looks like you're all ready for Christmas, Kate! Great job on the binding--I've always been too nervous to try applying it in any shape... Think I need to go take some sewing lessons (AND get a new machine :)
