Xmas item & another finish

Today is 1 Xmas item a month day & i just made it. :)
I've been wanting to make this ever since Vicki had it on her blog quite a while ago. Now i can cross it off my "to do" list.
My other finish after several years is the table topper that matches the runner i finished a few posts ago.
The embroidery patterns were put out by Crabapple Hill many years ago. The shops that had them created their own versions of a tabletopper out of them. I liked this version the best of what i seen at the time & i loved the fabrics that went with the kit.
Just a couple of close-ups of the patterns used for the embroidery. See i told you i love anything to do with teacups, teapots, jugs & sugar bowls. :) Excuse the wrinkles. Photographed it straight of the line from drying. Lol. I was concerned to with this topper as i discovered a few stains on it when i went to quilt it. Luckily they seem to have some out in the wash.

Happy Stitching,
