And the finishing continues

I've spent quite a bit of time at my sewing machine this week, completing the finishing on all the ornaments I've stitched recently and making up a few exchanges and gifts. Here are a few pics of the finishes I can show now and the rest will follow later in the month :)

My cousin Odette has recently had a baby boy and a friend is due to have her baby mid-December so I thought the Cute as a Button charts will make up lovely gifts.

Its hard to believe that December is now here, only 20 more days and then I'm on holiday for 3 1/2 weekss, wahoo!!

Enjoy your weekend, whatever your plans, and thanks heaps for the lovely coments about the Violet and Lace Sampler!
