I want to share what I received from some of my blogging friends for my birthday . The first package to arrive was from Lesley , such a thoughtful friend .
I then received this lovely present from Annette , she knows how much I enjoy my tea so she made me this really beautiful tea cosy which is reversible , how clever is that :-)
Here is the Christmas side , and here is the reverse side ..
I also received this birthday postcard from Linda ,
Now I must share what I have been sewing lately , I think I told you I was making two jumpers for my granddaughters , well they are finally both finished , it seemed to take me forever .
I have also been making some small items for exchanges , want to see ?
A little wool needlecase , a pattern that was in a magazine years and years ago . Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the interior but it basically just had a couple of wool pages for the needles .
Next was this little roll up sewing case , a pattern from all people quilt .com , now for the interior ..
It has a few pockets for needles and scissors and the flower pot is made of wool and is a pincushion of sorts .
I seen a photo of something similar to this on pinterest so drew it out on paper and went to work doing some handwork , it is all done by hand and I put a pin on back to either wear as a brooch or place on your sewing bag , it was really fun to do and I think I will have to make another for me ;-)
Here is a postcard I sent off the other day , I had signed up for an exchange on a yahoo group and had completely forgotten I had done that so had to scramble and get one made , the theme was winter wonderland .
I have made a few more postcards but I will share those at another time ,I think I have kept you long enough for now . Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy your day .
