Projects you can make...

I've taken some time to hunt down some wonderful projects shared across Webdom that you may not know about, but which would be brilliant to make for yourself or as Christmas gifts or decorations!

I've decided to make some of these beautiful linen bookmarks from the tutorial that Minki Kim shared HERE...


What about an afternoon of making sweet felt mittens?
The template and instructions are HERE on Amy's blog...


Or  do you have a stash of vintage linens?
These mittens are adorable too!
The instructions and template are shared HERE on Carol's Polka Dot Closet blog...


What about this delightful little cross-stitch shared by Cathy Roy of Le Chalet des Perelles?
It can be downloaded HERE.


Or if you'd like to stitch something larger Cathy also shares this *gorgeous* design, which very quickly rose to the top of my To Stitch For Pleasure list!
You can download it HERE.


New BOM!
Jacquelynne Steves is starting a free Block of the Month this week but you'll need to be quick to sign up. It can be either a 4 block or 6 block project - it's up to you  - but it looks lovely and would be great for using up fabric scraps. Check it out HERE....



Have a lovely day everyone!
I'm deciding between sewing down binding or starting one of these projects above...decisions, decisions... 
Or I could do both.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
