I received an early Christmas present.  I entered the drawing at Craft Blog to win a fabric pack from The Oz Material girls and I won!  I feel very fortunate and will try to find just the right project to make the best use of these beautiful fabrics using my novice sewing skills.    I’d like to try a simple patchwork project – I’ve never done that before.   I am so pleased with the fabric and they are all my favourite colours too.


I’ve been working on the chicken scratch stitch again and am relatively happy with this little Christmas tree.

I’m not sure if the beads add or detract from it.

But I think it could make a nice Christmas tree ornament.
