I have done quite a bit of sewing this week, but can't show too much of it yet. I did finish a ufo.

I completed my last bow and now need to get them together in a top

I spent too much time looking for a pattern for a gingerbread house. Melanie , had written in a blog post about using a stitchery pattern as applique and it inspired me. So that is what I did with a stitchery pattern I ordered recently (excuse the strings and I need to put something on top of the pole). Thanks Melanie!

Cute snowman. I use coloring pages for applique and embroidery, if I ca't find what I'm looking for.

Isn't it fun at this time of year to be able to focus on Christmas things, and they are often small so it's easy to finish. I love your gingerbread house, very inventive.

Melanie said...

Lovely work Lynn. Well done for finishing your BOWs just need to put them together now. :-)

Love your snowman!

Your stitchery/applique came out really well.

Great idea for your gingerbread house. So cute.

Love the gb house, Lynn, and thanks for giving the gb man eyes, even if you didn't use raisins. LOL Cute buttons!

Thank you Lynn for your kind words of my loss.

I love the wee 'magic' square.

Can't wait to see the finished product.

Oh my gosh, the gingerbread house is super wonderfully cute! I was making one and didn't like it. Maybe I should try again.

thanks for the peek
