Some sewing for Christmas.

My Christmas round table cloth has been more difficult that I anticipated but here it is finished..
Not on the little round table it is meant for as that only comes out at Christmas.
So here it is on the little hall table just to show it's finished.
 
 
And three  little fan purses for friends
These are so simple to do although quite a lot of work as they are quilted, lined and have a zip.
It is a great way to use up scraps of fabric.
I think I am having a rest from sewing for a while and shall be cross stitching. I have got quite a few WIPs.
1. Cut thro Beach Hut
2. Fairies at the bottom of our garden
3. Welcome design with a Cat
4. Number 5 of AOH
5. Convent Herbal Garden, Chatelaine

So I shall be rotating these, perhaps each one for a week, rather than for two evenings.
What do you do when you rotate projects? Any suggestions?

Happy days what ever you do.

I was wondering why you had a round table cloth on a rectangle table! ;) Looks lovely.
No suggestions from me. I try NOT to rotate! ha! I prefer one project at a time. =)

The tablecloth & fan purses look great! I'm sorry I can't help with the rotation question. I'm a "one at a time" girl : )

The tablecloth and fan purses turned out great Chris. Happy to read that you are going to work on the Beach Hut again. The cut thru is a Monday SAL and thats when I work on the Stable. I also have SAL's on Saturday and Sunday. The other 4 days I work on whatever. I would just pick a rotation that works for you.
