I can almost say that I have finished making Christmas gifts! I have two big boxes full now, and it has been more fun that I could have imagined!
There are a few more 'big' gifts to complete, but I have time for them before December...it was just so good to make all the smaller gifts before October nodded goodnight. How are you going with your own gift-making?
With still 1/2 of that sweet bird doily left to play with I thought a lavender filled door hanger would be perfect...
...and then I got the doorhanger-bug and made a few more from other designer's stitcheries I'd already finished and had put aside 'for something'. (Do you do that too??)
You can see how easily these gift boxes are filling, I'm sure! :-)
How are you going with your British flag cushions?
I've finished Blossom's Italian flag one! I even added a little passport so she could remind herself that her dream of a trip to Italy will happen one day.
This is the fabric I used for the backing...
...Rome, Venice, Pisa - one day we'll be there!!
I'm back to playing with my own designs today. One part of design is to choose just the right fabrics to bring the design to life - and my worst habit is to design and stitch before I match the fabrics!
I'm thinking this 'Scribbles' print would be lovely with the baby quilt stitcheries...
....and a pink paisley print I've had for ages would really bring my newest Dill Dally Daisy design to life!
Not sure yet about my tiny and sweet Shabby Roses sampler blocks...
...although some romantic Robyn Pandolph would be gorgeous.
Look what Fiona of Bubz Rugz sent me this week!
The softest chenille washcloth and soap with a fragrance that lingers and lingers...quite sublime. I think it's Lemon Myrtle - am I right Fiona??
Thank you so much for your kindess, Fiona!!
