Christmas through the Year!!!

Jingle Bells!!!  Could use some snow to cool us off here :D  Visit everyone at Allie's, Christmas Through the Year.

I didn't think I had much to show this month but the last few days I've been playing with my embroidery machine.  But first I found this mug and it struck a chord with me because I had a machine embroidery design with two birds similar to this and I knew I had coordinating fabric:

So I made two mug rugs to coordinate with them:
Puppy madness: Sandra and I are doing a swap.  She is going to make zipper bags for me and I am making dogs for us.  One dog for Sandra, one dog for me.  Great stocking stuffers:

Lavender Sachets

I may not be able to do zippers, but my embroidery machine can so I made these strawberry purses (already gave one to Helena):


And this dog purse that I love :)

This was supposed to be tea bag purse but it didn't turn out so well.  I"m still working on that pattern. 
That's all folks for this month! :)

Lots of lovely things. I love the matching mugs and mug rugs. The little dogs are very cute and your purses are so creative. I think the tea cup one looks great.

Totally adorable - everything!! I'm looking forward to making you the zipper bags - I'm trying to plan a trip Stateside for the beginning of July so hopefully I can mail them then! The puppers are ever so cute, heehee!!
