Retreat projects

These are the other five projects we got at the retreat. The Christmas tree table runner is quite cute, I might make just the centre.

I was quite restrained with my shopping. Some plain fabric for stitcheries and the other two are for a bag lining......I couldn't decide so got both. The Christmas Delights will make some sweet little gifts. Crushed walnut shells, magnetic fasteners......unfortunately no extra hours in the day for sale. That's my little birdy from the table decoration.

Ta-dah! I just finished my needle case......

I am completely in love with 1/2" hexies.

Back to my secret sewing now.
