Some finishes.....

The weeks are going faster as it gets closer to Christmas.  I have so many things I want to make but I suspect like most years I won't get everything done.  I have completed a few things from my to do pile so here are the photos. I have been trying to find a flower pattern that I liked to add to a bag I am making and also one for my machine cover but haven't been able to find one so, I fiddled around and came up with this. Felt on the back and used half a jelly roll strip folded in half and gathered for the petals, two buttons for the center. What do you think?

Two more journals.  One to keep track on all my embroidery UFO's. 

Thread catcher to match my mat and machine cover .
I am still working on my Xmas Swaps and have a request for some curtains for my son so marked some finishes off and added a couple more to the list.  Well, must go, as my sewing room keeps calling me and with only a week to go till I need to post my swap parcel, there's lots to be done.    Hugs..........
