Yesterday i joined in with Friday Night with Friends hosted by our very lovely Cheryll.
I've joined in a couple of Christmas swaps & needed to make a decoration for 1 & plan out the gifts for the other. After sorting through patterns & cutting fabric out i settled in for a short machine sewing session making up triangles to turn into decorations.
Then some more sorting through my SIL's stash. It is giving me a headache. I'm coming to the stage, because i'm over internet buyers because they just don't read what i write, that i'm thinking of somehow advertising a "garage" sale of the fabrics, patterns, books, mystery ufo's, ufo's that do have patterns ect & just say make a reasonable offer. Oh & that is just the patchwork. I've still to collect all the crochet stash yet.
In the evening i finally sat to make up the decorations. They may be small & fiddly but they make cute ornaments. I just hope the new owner/s will like them.
Not as much done as i hoped but at least i got these 2 done & dusted.
If anyone is interested in the decoration swap you have until tomorrow to sign up here.
During the day my latest Jim Shore ornament arrived. I love cardinals & i loved this ornament as soon as i saw it. Happy Happy am i. :)
Also on a brighter, happier note my birthday/Christmas present to myself finally made it to Aussie shores. Just have to await arrival from Tasmania now. :)
