Sewing Bag

I have been stitching .... but lots of it has been secret stitching for gifts !!!  Now that Helen has had her birthday, I can share the gift I made for her with our Friends in Stitching group .... the brief was that it had to be a black and white bag of some description .... with a gift inside .....  So I stitched a Rosalie Quinlan design in black .....

Then added some black and white fabrics, and a fancy button and a zipper, bagged the corners and made a useful stitching bag .....   inside were some chocolates and a little black and white box and a scissor fob !  Happy Birthday Helen !! 

I'm gradually ticking off the Christmas list of things to do .... write Christmas cards (tick) and compose a quick letter (tick) and make a collage of photos of the family to include (tick) .....

Back to stitching now and packing up a box of Australian goodies to send off to Sam and Nadia in New York .... where it is very chilly and has been snowing a little too !!    Happy Christmas preparations to you all !!


Thankyou for visiting my blog ... and for taking the time to comment .... your comments are most appreciated!
