It's officially less than a month to Christmas. Let the countdown begin :) The Christmas Tree is up... a little early yes... but I needed an activity to keep the kids busy and entertained before they drove me up the wall. My poor DH has been working most weekends all weekend.
Introducing Yuri - an Ooshka Babushka Boy.
It's been some time since I made something that wasn't a quilt... I intend to give one of these as a Christmas gift. Yuri's not quite perfect but gave me an opportunity to perfect my efforts... Fortunately the boys loved him all the same. He's currently capeless but I am hoping to add that to him this week.
I plan to use some AJ fabric to make an Alexy for someone little and special. Just waiting on more face panels to arrive :)
You can order an Ooshka Boy here. There are girl Ooshkas too! So sweet!
I also have been making buttons, magnets and badges with my new i-top. Actually I bought the i-top MONTHS ago but it only made it out of the packaging last week. I also made a wee FMF coaster and a wee green log cabin pin cushion.
Here's a sneaky peek of something delightful winging it's way to someone...
And here's a pic of my Mystery Giveaway that Michelle won at the start of the month...
I was given some needles like those above in the pic and they are the best! So much so I've bought a few to add to Christmas pressies for crafty friends! Thanks Georgia for putting me on to them to begin with.
I've got a few more things I am hoping to make in time for Christmas too! How are you going with your Christmas projects and shopping?
