Well in case you're wondering what on earth I found to do with myself while 'net-less ;o) ... here's what I did!!!
I made 27 of them, one for each of the lovely ladies in my quilt group for Christmas - all from my scraps :o). It was our breakup on Monday and we had a lovely lunch.
There are lots of handmade bits and pieces all over the house, I'll show you a few....I made this stained glass window last year and I have another piece of fabric to make another one but I haven't gotten around to it yet ....... sound familiar LOL????These I made when the kids were quite little, in my cross-stitching days - they are red velvet. Gosh, I haven't done any cross-stitch for years.Here's a cute way to display your Chrissy cards ..... each of the ribbons hanging down is about 1.5m and there's a big ceramic star button at the bottom of each ribbon to weigh it down a bit. I made this a few years ago and I love it :o).Awwwww, pretty :o)!! Although I daresay there will be more added to it over the next couple of weeks :o). Don't you love the pressies under the tree .....??? They're 'wrapped' in UK postal envelopes ... tee hee. DD1 sent them over from London and some aren't wrapped inside so I've been instructed to not open them until Christmas ........ it's driving DD2 insane LOL.
Yesterday DD2 had a friend over and they made the house all festive and Christmassy ........ about time I hear some of you say lol.How gorgeous are they??!!
Talk soon ....
