I eventually got my capes finished and my Christmas markets are now all out of the way. Phew! I have just put most of my leftover stock in my folksy shop so if you are looking for last minute Christmas pressies for expectant mums, babies or children, pop over and have a look!
I have bibs (big & small!)
Tooth Fairy Cushions
I ended up buying some lovely things at the last market I did. A gorgeous vintage cotton reel coat hook and some pretty wooden display shelves. These are now in my sewing room. I love them!
You had to send
1) a Christmas stocking
2) Something useful
I am sending a little handbag size tissue holder with Cath Kidston tissues inside
Couldn't resist adding this pretty little notepad
3) a handmade Christmas Decoration - My friend Jo made this one.
Cath Kidston Bath Crystals
A Christmas Bath Bomb
5) Some Nibbles.
Rachel has 5 children so I included something for all of them
and 6) Something to play with
This was hard so I just put in some random things I thought Rachel would like. Rachel doesn't have a blog so it was difficult to know her taste although we did email each other with our likes and dislikes. I know Rachel likes lime green so I put in this gorgeous Washi tape
Some Christmas ribbon
A little handmade keyring purse
with some cute buttons in
and a little sewing kit
All wrapped up in pretty Primark tissue paper! Hope she likes them.
and I have FINALLY started the anniversary quilt. Well I've cut cut out some of the fabric. I found it really hard to use a rotary cutter though so I am having to do it with scissors. Quilters look away now! I met a lovely quilting lady at a craft fair last week who has promised to come round and show me the error of my ways. I hope she does! I need the help.
So is everyone ready for Christmas??
