Thank you all for your lovely comments on yesterday's blog. I hope Cat reads them too.
Well anyway, Cat likes blue, red and pink so I went with that as the theme. I made a rag wreath in the shape of a heart.
All of her gifts were popped into this cute bag from Trade Aid. There is a red heart printed on the other side. Silly aren't I not photographing the other side?!! It's always the way.
Here we have a tea bag holder for her purse, made from part of a tea towel, a lavender sachet made from an old table mat, and a fabric coaster for a cuppa made from new fabric believe it or not!
Some little bits and bobs... (Oh the pink thing at the bottom is a origami heart made by No.2!)
And one of my tea towel aprons for her little curly haired princess. There is a recipe for sugar cookies on the front in case you were getting eye strain trying to see. I've never made them before. I wonder if anybody has?
And that's it for another lovely swap. I have no more on the go and probably should have a bit of a rest for a while. I'm thinking that I really must get back into my quilting. Do you go in fits and bursts as well? I'm fine until I run out of something and have to stop. Then I find it hard to get going again. But once I'm off there'll be no stopping me!!
But first I would like to make some little dolls for the Christchurch children. Actually I met a couple of them this morning. They have just joined No.3's class, lucky them, they have a super new teacher. It's strange how they are all so scattered around our country now.
No.1's school is helping out the children with heart problems who have had to move up here. We are fundraising for them and donating goods as they are all in a hall together. It's going to be very different for them for a good while. But if we all do a small bit to help out they should all be fine.
Love to you all xxx
