Progress report

I thought that I would give you a progress report on my long Christmas list. 

First up, are another couple of zippy pouches. I have been asked to make some for a local shop so I don't know if these will end up as presents or not. I really want to make one for my lovely SIL as her birthday is a couple of days after Christmas.

 The second one is made from the same scraps left over from a jelly roll.

I have also made a couple more Zakka pencil cases.

I have started hand stitching around my Christmas table runner. Thanks to Susan, who gave me advice about the type of needle to use, I am making a good start on this and thoroughly enjoying the hand stitching.

I don't think I will achieve very much sewing this evening as we are going to Lincoln to the Christmas Market. It is going to be cold and crowded. Perfect for a little mulled wine as we go round the stores.

  1. Some good progress there, and those pouches are looking lovely! I like the hand stitching on the table runner, what needle are you using, as i find the little hand sewing ones too small, and i seem to be better off with bigger/longer ones!

  2. Love a wee glass of mulled wine! Gorgeous pouches D! I'm sure they'll be snapped up in no time! Jxo

  3. Pouches looks lovely - nice detailing. Enjoy your time at the Christmas Market!

  4. Nice pouches and I love the Christmas table runner. I am so wishing that I had started on Christmas earlier but I just don't feel in the mood until about now!
    I would be interested to hear what needle you are using for the handstitching too.

  5. Oh Di - your zippy pouch is gorgeous. Enjoy the Christmas Market (wish I was at it!!)

  6. Lovely pouches Di! Hope you enjoy Lincoln Market!

  7. Oh your makes are looking lovely, Di! Hope you had a great time at the market.

  8. Fabulous pouches Di. We went to the market a few years ago, it was soooo busy. Hope you had fun
