Have you all completed your Christmas stitching? Believe it or not I am still steadily stitching the hours away completing some Christmas decos. I had a few days where I couldn't stitch no thanks to my FMS ( Fibromyalgia) playing up rather badly and a night in emergency at my local hospital as a result of side effects from the pain killers I was taking. Grrrrrrrr. So, this afternoon I completed the last of 3 pressies for my great nieces and one of my great nephews. I made little dilly bags with their initial appliqued on the front and a gift inside. Originally I had intended to make the girls little handbags and the boy a wallet with pockets in it to put his matchbox cars in. Alas, I could not find any patterns in time so I decided to wing it and make some dilly bags instead. Even that was trial and error !
One of the things that went inside the bags were these. I cannot take credit for them, they were made by a friend. Great idea huh?
I posted small pressies to some lovely bloggy friends.
After much ado trying to find some wheat and discovering the smallest bag I could buy was 5kg, I made 3 wheat bags for my beauty therapist as a gift. ( I think I will be making a lot more or giving the wheat to my daughter's chooks! )
These little items were in one of those pressies but I cannot say who they were for until they have received them.
And this was posted today to..............
Sorry about so many photos, I got all excited hehehehe. Now that I have finished all the gifts I can focus on finishing those decos so I can put all my Christmas things on display this weekend.
Many thanks for all your lovely comments and friendship this year. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year with an abundance of all good things. I may post again before Christmas Day depending on other commitments and my health status.
Many Angel Blessings.
