Christmas is almost here! Hope everyone is ready!
Just popping in with a quick post for Jo’s Gifted Gorgeousness (you can see everyone else's posts over at Jo's HERE).
As it’s almost Christmas there is one more Christmas tune I really love ...... Wizzard! I was especially pleased to find it doesn’t have an advert before the music starts!
Yay I have a finish!
This is quite appropriate for Christmas, in one way ..... because I think this little gift was something I received for Christmas at least 20 years ago!
Do you remember me saying recently that I thought I'd destroyed this piece!
..... when I cut the fabric too close to the stitching .....
But look, I got lucky! The stitching went well and, surprisingly, the edges didn't fray! Phew!
|Now I just don't want anyone to touch ..... the fabric|
was just beginning to fray as I finished stitching
And, its almost "Squirrel time"! Tee hee!
As it happens we have a white squirrel visiting us these days:
|He's quite elusive and hard to capture on "film"!|
|Some days he looks better than others!|
So this little piece of stitching falls under the categories of Gifted Gorgeousness because it will be a gift for one of my friends from my handicraft group, it is also one of those squirrel projects ..... one of those projects that makes you drop everything else until its finished. (I'll be linking this post to Menopausal Melon's DReaMi squirrel party shortly)
This was meant to be a pincushion ..... but I'm not sure I can stop myself turning it into a teeny tiny bag to hold a pincushion!
|The skinny pinnie is just posing here,|
there will be a specially made pincushion
for this little bag
This little bag (or pincushion) is probably smaller than you would think looking at my photos! It finishes at 9 cms tall, 13 cms if you include the handles and 7 cms wide (3 1/2", 5" and 3" approx).
I seem to be in Pincushion making mode just lately, which is probably why I'm joining in with Bea's pincushion swap over at "Beaquilter".
Perhaps you'd like to join in? Not sure when the closing date is but you can read all about it Here.
Must go, duties to do!
Have a Super Christmas all, and I hope to "see" you again in the New Year.
Thank you for popping by, and thank you so much if you are leaving a comment too!
