Yesterday I finished work for the year. Yippee! The last fortnight has been one long round of rehearsals and performances ... now I have fallen in a heap! Lucky I have until Feb 5 before returning to work. Below are the ornaments I received from Simona in this years SSCS. Simona is a blogger from Croatia.
She used buttons, wooden spools and thread to make me these cute ornaments. Thanks Simona.
I made this bird for my partner, Tami, using some scraps from my tumbler quilt.
I sewed lots of squares to make a new pieced fabric then used a bird template in Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle by Tone Finnanger. Turned out quite cute even if I say so myself!
On Tuesday night the Material Girls had their Christmas Dinner and exchanged ornaments/gifts. I received this lovely hanging decoration made by Bev. She told me the design is from a Nancy Halvorsen book.
The star on the back is her own addition. Very nice.
I made a Christmas Bon-Bon from a pattern by Anni Downs. These are fun and easy to make. The most time consuming part is stitching and needleturning the stitchery.
Here's a little peek at the inside contents which went home with Vicki.
Now I'm on holidays I hope to be a 'better' blogger! It's only nine days 'til my 2 year blogoversary so look out for a giveaway soon.
