The book is new, the contents newish, the cover new, but the title is recycled from a wallhanging.
Some adverts, and some pictures of things I like.
A pattern for an elf I might use one day. He is sooo cute!
Some trees and one of the reindeers I just might need in the future.
Yahoo! The last of the Christmas scraps, and from now on the plan is from here on all the Christmas and all the toys will go together.
A new scrap book, homspun cover, and some slightly twisted snomen freehand cut from scraps of fabric and fused in place.
I really wanted to use the snowman theme in the title of the book, but in the finish went with the three bells which help hold the book together!
As with the other Christmas scrapbooks this one is filled with scraps of magazines, these from 1990 to 2005. (All the scraps from this period ended up in a rather large pile, which slipped, and became rather a large paper slide, so they are all mixed up.)
The overall theme is Christmas, but ranges from primitive through country style to Victorian.
The page on the right has a six page article about Ol’ Saint Nick.
This is an old book which was partly filled with designs started soon after I started quilting with the intention of making a Christmas Quilt. The quilt was made, the book was never filled or covered. It now holds a small part of the scraps saved from a pile of magazines.
An article about Christmas cards, with a few secrets hidden under the loose leaf on the right hand side.
These two designs were not used, and I am so glad I didn’t use that snowman! He would give me the creeps there as well as here! Note to self …… change the eyes before using this fellow in the future!
The pattern pages have been given a touch of colour with a few small pictures added.
I don’t know that these two are much better, but they were used. What was I thinking with the back view of the angel? (I was trying to avoid doing a face, as this was before I was designing my own dolls.)

B C Bear
New ….Beginners One Day Workshop
Cedric was born up the River Murray,
on the houseboat ‘Un-wined’ in August 2004.
He was my second bear design,
though the next design, B C Bear, was completed before Cedric.
He is a composite of Baby Butch and B C Bear designs,
looking more like Baby Butch
but made from the same fur fabric as B C Bear.
B C Bear
‘Brian Charles’ or ‘before Cedric’
When I told Brian who this bear was he said ‘He looks nothing like me!’
I had no intentions of making a Cedric,
though there was another white bear cut out ready to stitch,
and a body left over from this one, as I redrafted the body while making B C.
B C Bear is the bear shape I have loved for some time, but there are not that many around as either patterns or bears.
I was quite chuffed to get this result so soon after making my first bear.
