The 12 Months Of Christmas...checking in ;)

It occurred to me today that, with all the excitement around here lately, I forgot to check in with my 12 Months Of Christmas progress for February...sorry about that!

So, how did you go for February? Did you manage to tick anything off your Christmas 2013 list? Or maybe moved a little closer with some of your Christmas crafty goals?

I did the latter...just moved a little closer to a Christmas finish :)

My Christmas Tree Skirt has quite a lot of stitching to get through, and I didn't really expect to get it finished in's a bit more of a long term project :) Besides, that's why we scheduled in catchup months, right?

I also have a decision to make on the finished shape, and how much more applique I'm going to add. In the meantime, I'll keep pondering and blanket stitching and pondering a little more  :)

Our project for March is a Christmas tablerunner, and turned out to be the perfect excuse for me to stock up on some new Christmas fabric (like I need an excuse LOL)...

 ...Aneela Hoey's Cherry Christmas is a gorgeous combination of red, grey, turquoise and green, and has lots of cute small scale prints. At this stage, I'm leaning towards using this pattern by Janelle Wind...                                           

...the colourful version on the right, NOT the embroidery-laden one on the left ;) Tracey, Linda and I have planned a catchup on the Easter long weekend to make a start...perhaps you might like to join in too?

Please leave me a comment if you have some 12 Months of Christmas show-and-tell...I'd love to take a peek!

Have a wonderful week
