Happy New Year 2016


Happy New Year to all elves and may we all have a very successful year in our merry little workshop. Thank you for all you have shared in previous years and I'm sure we are all looking forward to seeing pictures of all the amazing creations to make Christmas 2016 a Happy Handmade Christmas.

It's as simple as following these 3 steps:

1.  Get busy in the sewing room with

     a)   an item which you will use as a decoration in your home at Christmas  OR

     b)  an item to be given as a gift at Christmas  OR

     c)  one large project for the year and post your progress each month.

2.  Post a picture of your finished item (or progress on your large project) between the 25th and end of that month. Please use month 2016 in the label or the month in your title.

3.  No stress allowed ... no problem if you miss a month ... join in again when you can.

PLEASE NOTE:
Can I please ask participants to comment on this post or send an email -  pinsandwhiskers(at)gmail(dot)com - if you wish to take part in 1 Xmas Item A Month for 2016. Our door is always open and new Elves are most welcome to join us in the workshop.  I have already taken note of comments and added the following names as 2016 Elves.  Michell, Jeanette, Sisbabe, Raewyn, Maria in NC, Renee and Myself.

hi Anita, Thanks for visiting my blog. The rubber stamp came from a craft show at the NEC for a £1 in a sewing themed pack!! I checked out the packet but no joy. Sorry, enjoy your crafting. Jo x

Hi Narelle. I'd love to join in this year. Last year I tried to make a Christmas item each month but didn't know about this group. It will be fun to see what everyone gets up to. Cheers. Janice

I have watched you girls over the past year making lovely Christmas projects and as I love Christmas so much would I be able to join in the fun. I know being part of a group makes one a lot more motivated.

I would love to join if you would let me. I am a procrastinator so this would help me keep on track and get things done before the Christmas crunch times happens.

Hi all. Looking forward to seeing the Elves projects for 2016 as I so enjoyed seeing all the beautiful projects in 2015. Thank you Narelle for adding me to the group. I look forward to the challenge of completing more gifts in 2016 and sharing with everyone. Not sure how to post on the site though.

8 months late to the party, but I'm hoping to get started on some Christmas sewing, knitting and crochet if it's not too late to join in with everyone
