Handcrafted Christmas Presents


Had an enforced 2 weeks off work, after Gloria the old horse stomped on my foot!  Gosh it did swell up and couldn't put any weight on it, luckily, it wasn't broken much to the Xray chap's surprise but it did get an infection in it which slowed the recovery up.

Soo after days and days of sitting on the couch with my foot in the air sewing my teeny weeny hexies and reading books, I started to potter about in my slippers (nothing else would fit!).

Not sure when I will stop with the hexies.

Made some Christmas pressies.

A selection of these sweet fabric pouches, just need the fancy popper kit to arrive from Ebay so that I can finish them off and wrap them up.

A couple of fluorescent bandannas for my friends dogs, we walk at 7 a.m. when it is still dark (must be mad!)

Oh, pieced a quilt top for a wedding present but I will show that when its finished.

And finally, another Thread Catcher made out of the sewing label fabric, had to do a bit of fussy cutting so not to chop the labels in half.  Its filled with wheat and homegrown lavender, its smells of summer.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas
