As Caroline asked if anyone was doing any sewing, I told her I had been and would post today so here they are.


I started off without a name then decided to add names. These are from Molly Mine made in the 200x360 (16 x 9 inch inner hoop measurement 23cm x 41cm). These are for my annual Christmas Ladies luncheon. I hope they like them. They take about 2 hours to make and are fully lined. They will hold a few small objects. Finished size is 7.5 x 11.5 inches about 19 x 29 cm. I love this design and may end up making some for the littlest grandchildren. Love Chris

Someone sure has been busy. This cold weather really makes you want to get busy on the Christmas sewing doesn't it.

They all look really lovely and very festive. Love them all.

Very nice Chris! Christmas will be here before we know it but not easy to think about Christmas in all this heat we are experiencing.😓

It is cold here at the moment but come Christmas it will be sticky hot so have to get in while the weather is good.

Thanks Toogie, and I can understand how you feel sewing in the heat. I usually come out here in my back room where the air conditioner is and sew with that on in the summer. During the winter I don't like the hot air, so have a oil filled heater which just keeps the room warm! Love Chris

Super work Chris. We’re in the middle of a heatwave in the UK. Probably a spring day temp for you! Therefore I’m finding it difficult to think about Christmas. I always admire your forward planning. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Thanks Caroline, yes, I saw on television that England was in heatwave conditions. Those temperatures are nothing for us down here in Australia though!!!! We often get days in the 40's Celsius! I remember coming back from Europe 3 years ago at Christmas leaving the freezing cold and arriving here in Newcastle to 45C!! It was DREADFUL!!! Love Chris

Wales also has had a heatwave so far the top UK temp has been 31 and that was recorded 20 miles away. 45 doesnt bear thinking about. Property isnt built here for such temperatures. Our house is 170 years old and has very thick walls so we havnt had the very hot houses that many have had. Freezing to 45c is different
