Christmas meeting

Later today I'm meeting up with my sewing buddies. So this week is all about getting ready for this event. Not only had we arranged to swap Christmas ornaments we are also exchanging Christmas cookies. At our last meeting I was joking about bringing Christmas cookies to go with the coffee. Joking only as I don't bake this early. I'm always the last minute person but those ladies thought it's good idea. We all bring some and exchange. There are 11 of us in total so you can image. These are pure evil cookies. Shortening and flour covered up with sugar. Pure evil I'm telling you :-)

All packed up. I'm not usually very good at fancy packing but look at this. I really outdid myself. Each of them has little note. I started with the usual Merry Christmas and ended up with World peace sort of :-) Little scrap of Cherry Christmas and a button equals all set.

Here's the ornament I made.
My fav part is this birdie in the window.
Big present at the back side.
Some of you might remember my trial of kaleidoscopes or the one block wonder blocks. Anyway you like it. Well those roses are not really my style so it's going to one of those sewing buddies. I found a good home for it. I went with very simple quilting and I'm quite please with the result.

The original fabric as perfect back side.
I have also finished the cat pillow. You could see the front panel on WiP and here's another sneak peak. I'll link that up with Le Challenge as I consider pink to be quite precious. Yeah, that's the theme for this month: precious.
