I haven't posted for ages and the simple reason is that I have been working on lots of little gifts. My best friend has had her baby a couple of weeks early (Congratulations Jen, Kev and O!) so I will post their gifts when they have seen them. These bits are for a lady at work and her friend. Jane has been bringing me in all sorts of goodies; wool, fabric and wadding. Who could say no? Mum made Jane the fab lilac bag (these are a real speciality of Mum's and popped in a couple of extra knitted flowers for me to make into a brooch. The rust coloured number was my creation for Janes' friend who has been passing things on and I'm quite pleased with it. It's the first time I've made a gift box for a brooch and A4 card comes up just the right size. I'm planning to do a few more like this for the next fair I do, sort of a 'bit more than card but not an embarrassing present' type gift.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I am always glad to make contact with others who maybe pick up confetti from party tables, keep all those little packets of spare beads and buttons that come attatched to new clothes, who stroke fabric ......for hours...whilst gazing into the middle distance. (I cannot believe I am the only one who is maybe half woman/half magpie!) Please take the opportunity to have a glance at my latest 'fiddlings'. Enjoy fellow fibre freaks!
