Imbetween the hecticness of work at this time of year, I've been trying to make a few of my presents. I'm not doing too badly, surpAlign Centrerisingly, but no doubt there will be the last minute franticness. I'm still planning on making all the children their own initial keyring. There aren't too many of them so it shouldn't be too much of a challenge.

I made a friend this purse. I was playing around with some of my new stash of Mikodesign fabrics. I think she'll be pleased with it.


Then the in-laws. My in-laws are very hard to buy/make for but I'm quite pleased with what I've come up with. My father-in-law is taking us all away next summer for his 80th so I've made them both a Passport Holder...useful and appropriate! I even spoilt them by cutting into my precious Liberty stash.

Hopefully they like it enough to at least use it next summer...if they don't lose it/wear it out before then.

Er, LABELS! Didn't know about those - they're fab! Lovely things Kazza, wish I had made more of my presents but it just wasn't meant to be this year. (Cue collective sigh of relief from family....) xx

These are some grogeous hand-made presents - all these fabrics are gorgeous - the Liberty I'm familiar with but I do love being introduced to new ones like those in that purse. Beautiful!
