Crafting and goodies ... plus Gifted Gorgeousness 2016

Hello there!

I hope you are all enjoying my posts for the A-Z challenge! I am enjoying writing them!  

The last few days I have been a busy bee on the sewing machine and cross stitching!

I have finished Cara's cushion ...

She had her name written on paper and I managed to trace it onto the fabric then stitch over the top of the pencil markings!!  So, her very own personalised cushion!

Conor has now asked for a penguin cushion!!  Is there no end to the list??  NO! haha I really do not mind either :D  

I made two 'Floppy Pots'  today!  That was a learning curve haha!!  I totally enjoyed every minute of it :D

2 'Floppy Pots'

Filled with yummy stuffs!

The girls got a lovely surprise when that came home from school yesterday, a lovely 'old' friend had sent them a lovely parcel of fabric, a stitched personalised notebook for me and a lovely example of quilting :D  We are totally delighted for the lovely goodies and I am totally over the moon to have an old friend make contact :D  

She had been reading my blog and e-mailed me!  A wonderful blast from the past ...

Many many MANY thanks Jean xoxoxo

My girls are plotting and planning what to make!
the poor sewing machine will be tired once they
have finished!!

Beautiful ... Just Beautiful :D

Oh my!!  Fantastic :D
I am putting this as a decoration cloth in my room
Too good to be folded away!
Gorgeous :D

That's just a quick update from here!!  I missed my Gifted Gorgeousness post for April, but to be honest I haven't made any gifts ... Well the cushions may count!!  I haven't stitched anything though!! I must get some stitching done for my May posting :D  I really do need to get a move on with teacher gifts as the time is getting closer and closer (Last weekday in JUNE my children finish for the summer!!)  Not far off!!  

Well I had better start getting the kiddies sorted for bed!  The days are just whizzing by these days!

Bye for now ... see you for the next letter tomorrow :D
