Some Christmas and other finishes for October


October went by like a whirlwind. I think that means I have been busy. 
I have been busy finishing some projects and - of course - there are WIP's. 

Warning: Photos heavy! 

First of all, I'm happy to say my scrappy Christmas log cabin quilt is finished! :)

I have quilted two 'bunting & bows' for each block. It was tedious, but I love how it turned out. 

The back has cuddly flannel depicting reindeer and trees. 

Four Santa place mats. I think they are so cute I have to show them all! :) 

I've used the same fabric line (as the place mats) to make this cute table topper.

Green patchwork / cardinal table runner

 I love this pattern and made a red one too! :) 

Cardinal table topper. Happy to say this one has sold! 

October - the month of breast cancer awareness - I made two mug rugs. 

Christmas card holder with three pockets

3 'grape' mug rugs

2 more mug rugs using the same fabric. 
Love to use up bits and pieces! :) 

You may wonder how I manage to do so many projects in such a short time? Well, most of these projects were almost done, but had to wait for batting and thread to finish them. 

I'm happy to say I have made some progress on my 2.5 inch charms Postage Stamp Quilt. A few blocks are sewn together already. I wanted to add it to this post, but it will be too much. I will do another post soonest.

Have a wonderful weekend!

You are already "knee deep" in Christmas projects it seems. Lots of lovely stuff you have produced and no doubt are still producing.
