Presents galore





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.

Thank you for visitng my blog. The purple knitted bag is lovely. My knitting is not great but I do like making bags. I too have recently made a quilt for my daughter. Yes, I did my teaching practice at Budmouth School along Chickerell Road. Really enjoyed it too.
