Getting ready for Christmas!

I have been making some quick Christmas items. I have a little panel that is so cute with little reindeers and Santa on it. First idea was to cut it up and sew it back together again! This looks OK but was a bit too fiddly because the meausurements on panels are never regular. So then I tried just adding borders and this looks great and is much easier. Go to my Website for kits!

The second panel to cut up was 'In from the cold' by Kate Spain. This made up 4 placemats and 8 coasters in nice bright Christmas colours with the addition of pale grey and aqua-green.

These items match nicely with last years quick Christmas project, the stockings also by Kate Spain!
