ready for me to make into something fabulous.
3. A Purse
These I gave to Tiff.
This little bitty one that is just the right size to hold a set of zills
- which are finger cymbals used in Bellydancing
And this scrappy hexies purse in Liberty prints.
I received these little crochet purses from Tiff.
4. Free Choice
I made this wristlet for Sharon using a Melly and Me pattern that was part of the Daylesford Experience Kit from a couple of years ago.
It is called Out with the Girls mellyandme.
And I received this sweetest little crochet Reindeer from Lisa - Love...
5. To keep warm
I made these pocket hand warmers

and I received from Kate these little sweetie hand warmers and the crochet tea cup cozy.
6. An Apron
This is the Apron I made for Kate, it is a pattern in the book Patchwork Holidays.
And here she is modeling it for me
And this is me wearing the Apron I received from Wendy
( Tiff took this photo...)
Tiff & Wendy
This is the nativity set that I stitched for Lisa.
I used a colouring in diorama as the inspiration and they are double sided, so they can sit on the coffee table and be enjoyed from all angles.
This is a close up of Mary, Baby Jesus and Joseph.
And this is the special bag to keep them in or the 'Stable' if you like.
I received this Nativity Doorstop from Sharon.
Nativity and Dessert made by Wendy ( the Nativity placemat - not the dessert ) for Kate.
I did a fairly simple covered journal for Tiff using the Princess and the pea fabric,
and a bookmark to go with it.
Tiff made me these very cool Red Hood & Wolfie dolls.
Here they are on display in the forest at home.
9. Fun in the Kitchen
I made this Lunch bag for Sharon.
I followed this tutorial by Pink Penguin
I really enjoyed making this.
I added afew items to go with it, including the crochet apple cozy that I made following a pattern in Mollie Makes, a Strawberry colapsable shopping bag, a strawberry keeper and
a banana keeper.
This is the gift I received from Lisa.
Some fun cookie cutters
a set of place mats coasters and napkins.
Here it is set out beautifully.
And here is everyone having fun!
10. A Wreath
I made this Wreath for Wendy
I received this wreath from Kate and the little crochet earrings too.
11. Butterfly Flutterby
This was my gift to Kate.
I made this little needle book following the tutorial by nanaCompany
and I tried a freehand stitched then painted technique for this little zippered pouch.
I received this gift from Wendy.
A tissue pouch using a nifty technique
and a framed stitchery by Cinderberry Stitches.
12. Funky Fruit
I made this little bag for Lisa.
The pattern for this is in the book Zakka Sewing.
I also made this pear pin cushion for the sewing machine.
This was a pattern in a Better Homes magazine.
And I gave Lisa this crochet apple cozy that Tiff made while I made the one for Sharon.
Sharon made me this lunch bag, which was kind of funny since I made her a lunch bag for 'Fun in the Kitchen' and funnier still was that inside my lunch bag was a strawberry shopping bag just like I put in Sharon's bag! - great minds think alike!
