Christmas sewing

I can show these now because they have been delivered so they are no longer secret.

 Emma's Tree in red and ...

in green.

A Partridge in a Pear.

One stocking in beige and red and ...

one in plaid and green.

So, that's what I was up to for the past little while and why I haven't posted any photos of what I have been sewing.

Now I can think about the things that I want to finish off. I have a quilt that needs a couple of borders and then I can quilt it. There are a pair of cords that need repair (oh, joy.) With a new grandchild due in March, I'd like to make another quilt and I have a couple of small knitting projects that should be finished off. The list goes on and on, once I start thinking of them, so I will make a list for myself and then cross the things off as they get completed.
Have a safe holiday week.


  1. Dolores, your trees, including a wonderful Partridge ,are so lovely, the stockings too. I also have some pics I can now share, as presents have been given. Enjoy the season as it unfolds at your place. Cheers from Jean, cooler here today at 21C after some sewltering 35c plus days.

  2. What you have made- GORGEOUS! especially loving the partridge in a pear! Your family is SO lucky! I do hope they realize!
    Happy new year, I suppose...probably just like the old year.

  3. Hi Dolores,
    How clever your partridge in a pear is!! Very cute.
    Cheers, Anita.

  4. Wonderful Christmas sewing. I love the stockings..very nice. Congrats on the new grandchild.

  5. They are all very special Dolores, I know the partridge and that pear tree will be hanging around for ages and ages and ages yet... not just to show at Christmas. THANK YOU. I just wish I could show everyone here how stunning it looks hanging in the Soggibottom kitchen........ X
