Table Runner Swap

I'm very lucky to be a member of a group of ladies online and we are known as "Friends in Stitching" , we had a tablerunner/topper swap and this is the runner I made for Cathy, it was fun to make this for her as they aren't colours that I ever use but I must say I was very pleased with end result and hope that Cathy likes it as well.

My other partner was Leanne and she made me this lovely christmas runner, I love christmas decorations and the one thing I haven't got is a tablerunner so it was great to recieve this from her. We opened our gifts in our chatroom last friday night and it was as usual a fun time.

Thanks ladies for the great swap.

Oh dear......problems

Well what problems I have had posting these photos, don't know why they only have red x's in my earlier post, I tried to delete them from the post below but just couldn't do it so here they are again. You will have to read the earlier post for details of these piccies.

A great weekend with June

This is my project for the weekend with June, I made this bag to match my "Punchneedle Tool Holder" ( made earlier) it will carry my frame, patterns, threads and any other goodies I need for these projects and will keep everything tidy.

The weekend before last I had a great time with my granddaughter June, she is 11yrs old, we decided to have a crafty time together. Firstly on the Saturday we went to our local craft shop... Homespun and Beautiful..... to buy a pattern and fabric to make a bag for her and I also had bought fabric to make one for myself, June chose the pattern and fabric for herself as you can see in the piccie below. We also had lunch together in the cafe and then off we went home to sew up a storm.

Here she is busy... busy.... busy.

June finished her bag and was able to take it home at the end of the weekend with a big smile on her face and yes she did make it all herself ( I only helped her with the cutting) I'm very proud of her efforts, the pattern has a small doll brooch on it but she didn't want that on the bag. We had great fun and it was nice to enjoy this together.

Show and Tell

This is the second "Gift of the Month" from "Faeries in My Garden" I must get a move on or I'll be behind with these projects and I really would like to keep up so I don't end up with any UFO's.

This is the bag I sent to Stella in the "Snickerdoodles Dreams" bag swap, its a "Material Possessions" pattern called "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" its a great bag to make so I must really make one for myself soon.

I seem to be having trouble with uploading piccies tonight so I will try again tomorrow as I have a few more things to show.
