This was first time I’ve quilted using Bosal double sided fusible foam, and I love it, its brought a beautiful texture to my table runner. Using this stunning fabric from stoffabrics, added the perfect pattern for quilting.

These tiny dresden plates measure just 4 1/2″ in diameter – thats small, right? These were made for the #tinydresdenparty2019 hosted by Deidra @quiltyobsession

I used Gutermann metallic threads to sew the applique letters in place

Next up are some Christmas sacks, i love the little pom pom kits, and so added them around the top of each sack

Its been a few years since i made a pom pom, but these are super cute, and a great little project for the kids to get involved in

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a little cross stitch in front of the fire, and to add a little more sparkle, I used some Gutermann metallic threads

This kits come with a wooden hanging hoop, but i chose to cut mine out and use them to add some Christmas sparkle to a cushion

Which leads me nicely onto these very cute felt kits, i mounted mine onto pre-made blank cards, I love the 3D effect, and i think would make a fabulous gift from the kids to someone special
