Advent Calendar

Thursday, 17 November 2011
I'm not going to make any further excuses about my lack of blog posting - I'll just get on with sharing some stuff and pretend the gap never happened LOL.

I've just finished up this advent calendar panel for Connor.  I made Lia one (different design) years ago and of course now she wants one like his because it's bigger.  Pointing out that the pockets are the same size hasn't changed her mind LOL.  So I've told her she can't have one this year as I'm in the middle of making three more of the same design for my nephew and two great nieces...


I'm pleased with how this came out as I did a lot of the quilting by hand- the holly leaves and stars (which I did with glittery gold thread) and a few other little bits.  You can't really see from the pic but I put a hanging sleeve at the top so it's all ready for two weeks time.

I have another seven of these panels (not all the same design) but I'm totally box-pleated out for this year so the other kids destined to have one will have to be patient.

You are kind to your kids - they get one each, mine had to share the one I made!
