Christmas is coming!!

I have been very busy making things for Christmas.
This is a quilted runner for our side board.
 This is on our table not the side board because the side board is full of presents waiting to be wrapped!
 It's not such an orangy red but you can see the design. A nine square block in the middle and then surrounded by strips. I can't wait now to get the side board 'dressed' with this and all the little Christmassy things we normally put out, included our angel and then in the centre our Christmas cake, which always takes pride of place. Of course it isn't iced yet, a pleasure still to come!
And I have made another After Eight Box. It looks the same colour but it is a totally different colour.
I am half way through a crochet shawl for my daughter in charcoal grey, Yes dark grey, Of all the beautiful variegated yarns she could have chosen, she wanted dark grey. I will have finished it by the end of this week, hopefully!
Happy Christmas to all, there are  only 11 days to go!

Beautiful runner Chris - that's a lot of hard work. I do love your boxes.

Those colours are lovely. Will look great on the sideboard too.

Know what you mean about shawls. I do love making the pastels & recently a gorgeous ruby red. Hate knitting or crocheting dark colours but if it's what she wants......

The table runner looks so festive. I'm sure the After Eight boxes won't be full for long over the festive period.
