Some of the last christmas presents is finished...

I have been doing a lot of finishes for christmas the last week, so now I am near to finished with the presents! Just some small things left...
The hotwater-bottle is made in fleece and with the cute stitchery from a free pattern at Cinderberry Stitches...

These baskets made with inspiration from a pattern at Pink Penguin, will be filled with all sorts of goodies and other things one might need, and given to the oldest in my family (not easy to figure out what to give people that are 80+)...

...And these two wallhangings are presents for someone else (can't tell who they are, just in case they are peeking in my blog)...

I am off to finish the rest of the presents today, just have to make dinner first.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

My christmas-gifts is almost ready:-)

More christmas... the two christmas-stockings was so easy to put together, I just quilted the red fabric with variegated thread, and added the border on top of them. The one with the prairie-points was sold at the christmas-market:-)
The potholders was easy too, the leaves was fuzzy-cut from an old christmas-fabric I got from my grandmother. I sold one of the two pairs:-)

More christmas!

I have been making a lot of christmas related items lately, I really love christmas and all that comes with it. I like to decorate for the holidays around the house, and I allways like to have something new to put on display.
I made this tablerunner with some inspiration from a norwegian designer (Lise Bergene). It was simple and easy to sew. I sewed on some buttons from my "treasure chest" and quilted it with some stippling. It's a little untraditional in the colours, but I really like it:-)
The tabletopper was a lot of work, but really fun to make! I used a lot of different christmas-fabric for the dresden plates, and solid white for the background. Solid red and a red/white fabric for the sashing and border. And for the binding I used a red, white and gray striped fabric. To me, this says christmas all over:-)
