Sewing Up A Storm & Christmas Items Listed

This is what I woke up to yesterday morning.

It was gone by the afternoon, but I’m not ready yet.

After a busy couple of weeks sewing, I’ve finished some things for the Dickens Festival {just a month away now} and some for my Etsy.  I did another Jane Austen silhouette pillow.  This one is a little bigger and I was thrilled when I found some more of those crochet doilies that work so well for this type of image.

This particular doily made me think of a spider’s web, so I’ll have to keep that in mind for next Halloween.  I also did a crochet pocket on another simple pillow.

It also has a canvas pleated ruffle going down one side.

I also stuck a picture of this pretty little French girl in the pocket {so people will know it’s a pocket}.  The image is perfect for the season and, although you can’t see it right off, it says Joyeux Noel along the top.

I’ve got some stockings.

Some wine bottle gift bags.  These have some different labels from what I showed you previously.

I will wind up having to “deactivate” listings for much of my Etsy inventory {for almost two weeks}, running from December 2nd through the weekend of the 14th for the Dickens Festival gift shop I am participating in.

I will be dropping off the majority of my Etsy inventory for the gift shop at that time, so if you have had your eye on anything to purchase, for your holiday gift giving, you might want to purchase it before December 2nd.  To that end, I am offering 25% off any non-custom or made to order items {i.e. tea towels are made to order, sorry}.  Just use discount code CHRISTMAS25.

You've been very busy and sewed such lovely items, Kathy. The silhouette pillow is my favorite. Cute idea to use corks for the bottle gift bags.
Hugs,
