I'm still bag making! Yesterday I made this little bag for Heidi to hold the Cabbage Patch Collectibles I have bought her for Christmas. Whenever I have anything to give away these days, seems like I should make a bag to suit. Makes me feel a bit naughty as I really should be quilting and I have itchy fingers to start some applique. I find it very difficult to sit and hand-sew through the day - that's night time stuff for me!
I have opened the box from Stephanie and look at all these pressies! I couldn't believe my eyes and am quite overwhelmed - it's going to be lots of fun opening them all on Christmas day. I was given this gorgeous Santa bag by Sue at our gathering at Matilda Bay last Tuesday - I'm sure he'll keep everything safe until Christmas Day! This gift arrived through Chookyblue' SSCS!
I haven't quite got my Pay It Forward sorted out, so if there is anyone out there who isn't playing and would like to play, please leave me a comment - seems like lots of folks are already in a little group. The gist of it is I will make 3 gifts for diferent people within 12 months and they in return make gifts for 3 other people - should be a lot of fun and a whole year to do it! I think I have only Christine as a positive player at this stage!
PS - there's a funny little story to this! Heidi and Byron have just been over with their mother and Danielle wanted to see the little dollies so we snuck off into the sewing room to check them out - one was missing and we went through everything in the sewing room - gave up - went outside to have a coffee and next thing Byron says 'I found a baby!' Seems one little dolly had tumbled into the fern while I was photographing. Anyhow, we quickly confiscated the baby and hid it away - well, two very upset children! - and I guess to them Christmas is still a long way off! Maybe I will have to make Byron a bag with Cabbage Patch dollies, too!
I hope you are all having a nice weekend - not too much Christmas stress, please!
