Christmas Makes 2012
So this is a few shots of the things I made for Christmas 2012…….
|Christmas stocking for our neighbours.|
|Christmas cupcakes – recipe from The Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days|
|Bookmark for my Mum|
|Gingerbread cupcakes – recipe also from The Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days. It’s a good book for seasonal ideas!|
|Old-fashioned chocolate cake (with snowflake sprinkles!) – recipe from Feast by Nigella Lawson|
|Christmas stocking for my best friend (and I bought the card from my local farmer’s market).|
|Blondies – recipe from The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook|
|I made a santa sack for a family I am good friends with.|
|I used a panel of lobsters which I had screenprinted for the front.|
|For the back I used some gorgeous Christmas fabric one of my quilt group friends gave me in a disappearing 9-patch pattern. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of the finished sack. D’oh ho ho!|
|I made these tree ornaments as party favours for my quilt group and book group Christmas parties.|
|The pattern is from Kasja Wikman’s book Scandinavian Stitches.|
|It’s called Scandinavian houses.|
|I made the hangers from string.|
|I gave the quillters one of these badges each.|
|They looked pretty packaged up with a candy cane.
Hope your Christmas was fun.
Happy new year!
