A Little More Christmas Sewing...

These ones won't be staying with me...

I bought these Christmas Calendar panels recently, hoping they would renew my lost sewing enthusiasm... gee I must have been excited because I left them in the back of the car for 2 weeks!
On the weekend, I decided I'd better at least bring them into the house & figure out how to make them up.
The red rectangles fold in such a way to create little pockets.
 
Well my friends, it seems that Miss MoJo has returned from her unauthorised Long Service Leave & I've really enjoyed making these hangings!
I'll be putting these in for selling in the little shop that is part of the premises used by my Patchwork group. While they are not to my taste in Christmas things, they have turned out to be the sewing therapy I needed! Who knows, maybe someone who visits the little shop will love one?!

After reading about poor Wendy's FNSI thread drama (& getting a good look at her vast stash!) I was inspired to get out my Tis The Season & now I've stitched my 11th design for it.
Hey Wendy guess what I bought the other day?! Yep, a few 221s!

There's still time left if anyone wishes to link up with CTTY, just pop back to this post... it's great to see so many links already!

Your advent calendar looks fantastic! I bought some fabrics for an advent calendar probably a couple of years ago and haven't gotten to it.

I LOVE your stitchery! I recently saw the same advent calendar panels (the way the pockets fold up is so clever!), but it wasn't really to my taste either (and we already have a couple of advent calendars) so I didn't bring one home with me. Yours look fab. I'm sure they'll sell quickly. I'm glad to hear Miss MoJo is back!
