HoHoHo Christmas Blog Hop!!!


Hello everyone, I am soooooooo excited! Today is the first day of the Christmas blog hop (YAY!). I would like to thank Carol and Madam Sam! They are SUPER organizers and cheerleaders! I am sending them a virtual sheep hug! 

Out of the kindness of my heart I said Miss H and the Mother were allowed to use my blog so they could join the blog hop. I am sooo lovely!
We read all the rules and saw that there is a Naughty and Nice list. We decided we had better get started straight away because the Mother said she has NEVER been on a Naughty list and wasn't going to start now.

So make a cuppa coffee or tea and eat some shortbread and read on.....



This is me! I suggested that Miss H and the Mother put some of the things they made in hoops. I had the great idea while I was hula hooping!  :)



I will start with my favourite thing Miss H made.  ME!!! I am sooo cute! Look at all those french knots Miss H did for my wool.


The Mother had lots of fun making this. The bunting is only sewn along the top so they can flap.

Bustle and Sew 2012

I wish we had ice where I live (It is winter here, not that you would know it by the lovely sunshine we are having) so I can go ice skating like the coolio penguin Miss H stitched.


I love this Christmas carol.

A-OK Embroidery - Annie Oakleaves

Four gorgeous Pixies wrapped up warm to sing Christmas carols.

Why not sew - Christmas Tutorial

Don't tell the Mother but I am going to steal this to put with my Christmas decorations. Woops! I didn't mean "steal" I meant borrow... Please DON'T put me on the Naughty list!!!


Quilt Doodle Designs - Tutorial 2012

This is umm... nice... I HATE dogs. But... the Mother has done such a good job on it.

The reason for the season.  :)

I am calm! Where is the Christmas chocolate?

Mmmmm... peppermint tea.  Yummy!


Flurry - Kate Spain - adapted by the Mother

Are the presents for ME?!

Santa's Sleigh. I bet the big sack is for me!



Look at the jar cover the Mother made.


 Pesky dog!  Back away from the chocolate!!! Or ELSE!!!



 I don't think these are going to last until Christmas...........


 I don't feel well................my tummy hurts.................

And "the Almost Finished..."   Miss H hasn't decided what to do with the stitcheries....

Another "Almost Finished."



 The Mother also designed a quilt  using stitcheries and coolio fabrics she got from Thumpacat.

Mystery quilt - the Country Yard

 And FINALLY, Miss H finished a quilt she started back in 2011. She sewed the rest of the squares,  then sewed the quilt together before quilting the whole thing. :)


Here is a close-up of one of the blocks.

Whew! Sure made them work over the last 7 weeks!
Not that I'm a competitive sheepie.......hee...hee... 

Go check out all the COOLIO stuff the other ladies have made.  :)

  2. I'm exhausted just looking at everything you made...wow! You were very busy! I'm glad I don't have to pick a favorite, but I do like Festive Dog quite a bit. Had to laugh at the sheep on his back after eating all the candy. Too funny! I'm so glad you hopped with us and hope you do it again! P.S. If you turn off your word verification, it makes it so much easier to comment.:O)
