Giving a gift, receiving a gift
Today I can show you what I’ve made for Anne Marie. Her birthday was yesterday, she got my parcel in time and she liked it! That makes me happy!
It is a needle keeper I love to make. It is not difficult to sew, it has two little pockets inside and one can use stitch different motifs for the front:
I got a parcel with a lovely surprise from my friend Annie (no blogger).
She made the sweetest Arm Sewing Caddy I’ve ever seen!
I love the fabric she used:
She paper pieced the heart and the tulip for the pockets, they are so pretty and so fine. I love it! Thank you sooooo much!!!
I’ve started a Christmas Stitchery Project with Melanie and Simone and my first block is finished. In February I’ll show a picture of it, the motif is really cute! Are you curious?!
But I can show you something I started in December. I made the template, selected the fabrics, started sewing, and made a stupid mistake…
That was upsetting and I put it away. Some weeks later I thought it was time to give it another try. I got it right and I’m glad it did not end in the waste basket!
Plenty of place for color pencils and pens and everything else.
There’s not much snow left around where I live, but the temperatures are low – well, I always freeze! Guess what I’ll be doing during this cold weekend? That’s right! A nice and warm cup of tea, a nice CD and I’ll sit near the fire place and stitch!!
Hope you’re also having a lovely weekend stitching and sewing in your cozy home !
Until next time!
