Due to popular demand Christmas sewing Bonanza returns, I have expert help from Ali Hutchings in the painting department, bring something wooden, a plant pot, trug, wooden box or whatever and paint, then fill with a lovely Christmas decoration  twigs with glass baubles, cones or make it like a picnic or present hamper.  Turn a plant pot into an advent decoration.  I have new little sewn decorations to hang on a twig tree.

Make a selection of my favorite Christmas themed items including, Winter picnic blanket, new log cabin picture quilt,  Rudolphs Magic Saddlebag,  Charlie’s Magic Snowman wallhanging or quilt, Christmas bunting, scrap stockings, mini pin cushions or wallhangings and have fun with lots of new ideas to use up scraps and make delightful Christmas  decorations
