My Christmas List

Hi all here is my list for the Christmas Challenge.

  • Heirloon Christmas Tree - this decoration is from a book titled Little Book of Heirloom Christmas Tree Decorations by Jenny Stephenson and I have been sewing this for a while so this is my number one priority as I really want it for Christmas this year!!
  • Cross Stitch Christmas Cards - I am going to cross stitch Snow Flakes.
  • Felt Gingerbread boy hanging Christmas Tree  decoration for my grandson.
  • Felt Gingerbread girl hanging Christmas Tree decoration for my no. 2 granddaughter. (Have already made a felt Gingerbread House Christmas Tree decoration for my eldest granddaughter - hence my gingerbread theme this year)
  • Holly Leaf bunting
  • Xmas table runner and/or coasters - depending on what time I have available
  • Xmas quilted bib for my little no 2 granddaughter

The following are gifts for Christmas so I will have a bit more time to finish them before the 24th December -

  • Mother Hen and baby chicks this is from a pattern called Clucky from Melly & Me - I have done most of this so this is not going to take too long to finish
  • Felt carpenters tools plus apron for my grandson.  These patterns were found in the book Big Felt Universe by Jeanette Lim.
  • Cinderella Upside Down Dolly for my eldest granddaughter.  This is a pattern I got off the internet from Gail's Dolls Patterns.  This is going to be a real challenge as I have never made a doll before but there is the first time for everything!!
I am looking forward to the journey along the way and seeing all the wonderful ideas everyone will come up with ..................


  1. Oh boy your list is certainly not for the faint hearted. I think the challenge would all be worth it if it motivated you to finish your Heirloom Christmas Tree.

  2. I love gingerbread things too. I like that you put the books down so people can check them out. I need to go and write my own list instead of reading everyone elses!

  3. ** Stacey to finish the Heirloom Christmas Tree is my main focus as I have taken a while to get going and it is great to have the Christmas Challenge to get me motivated. Hopefully I will get everything done.

    ** Thanks for your comments Meg do check out the Little Book of Heirloom Christmas Tree Decorations on the net as it is a lovely decoration and is definitely a 'keeper'. Look forward to seeing your list.


  4. Those upside down dollies are pretty amazing! Looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

  5. Yes I am looking forward to seeing how the dolly turns out too - it is going to be a real challenge - I think that is why I keep putting off starting!!!!!
