Catching Up.....

I didn't sew much over Christmas but there were a few things I hadn't shown

Last year for gifts I did a bundle of these....  and filled them with a bottle and gave them away
(I think I made about 10 altogether) and the tutorial for these can be found HERE


I also added some stitcheries (which I have had for some time!) to some purchased aprons....


... this sheep (which is my favourite stitchery of all time I think) went as a gift


... and this one will stay with me...


I received this fun scissor fob and thread from Christine.... it even matches my scissors!


... I think my Mother In Law found the perfect mug for me and sent it over from UK with my daughter...


Righto, Gotto Go... time to fill up that mug and do some more "Growing Old Disgracefully"

So industrious in that awful pre Christmas heat! I bet your wine bags gifts (with contents) were much appreciated.

Dear Fiona,
what beautiful stitchery, love both designs, happy dancing sheep and the cute lady on the aprons.
The mug is a blast, great to have a cup of coffee out of this one.
Greetings,

The postie must have pinched my bottle of wine! LOL! How lucky am I to also be the recipient of the gorgeous dancing sheep apron. How funny is that, that you had purple scissors and I sent you a purple fob and thread. xx
