A Recent Finish

I've not done a lot of sewing this year as my sewing studio has been in uproar for a good part of it. We've had the decorators in and a new carpet has been fitted which meant getting everything out. I now have the unenviable task of finding homes for much of my equipment. The shelving arrangement I had before just wasn't working so I'm now trying to establish something better. My stuff is lodged around the rest of the house, whilst I make some decisions, which isn't ideal but I want it to be right when we've finished!

In the meantime I've been busy sewing Christmas projects for the shop:

This is a great new Christmas stocking from Makower, featuring Santa on one side and snowmen on the other. Pictured here as a work in progress all ready for quilting and the finished article.

I made the stocking double sided but it could easily be made into two stockings by using a plain back.

You cannot see here but I quilted it using a metallic thread from Gutermann, so it's all glittery.
