two days of happy crafting....

Last night I worked very hard to finish my sil's birthday pressie. The inspiration fairy sprinkled her dust and it was go, go, go!

My niece shares her birthday with my sil and as we will see them tomorrow I thought it would be nice to take her a little something- some tea towels, spruced up for her new home. I put their initials on one tea towel each, no excuse when your name is on the tea towel for not taking a turn?
I went to buy the little hanger from Jemima's and thought it would be good to pick up some fabrics for my item that I have to make for the 'little french swap'.
I think they are quite pretty..

I also got another small project finished but I can only give a sneak peak as it will be my Christmas item for March...

Am so cooking with gas...lots of happy stitching done!
cheers
Marina

Lovely, lovely things, but please stop doing Christmas things now, as you are making me feel envious and causing me to ponder my laziness, and we don't want me to do that do we. LOL
