Things that come with the storm
Xmas 2022


The race is on to get all the gifts sewn for the various groups I belong to.  First will be my quilting group, 25 members here.

Book marks, these take time to make but are good small gifts.  (Here is the link to the pattern.)

Drawstring bags.  All made from fabric I bought from the Embroiderers' Guilds, secondhand rose, sale table to put the jam jars in.

I have held on this ribbon for 30 years because I liked it so much.  Time to use it.

And I need to put a clip on this bag.

But I have written all the cards to go with the gifts, all 25 of them.

I want all this finished by tomorrow.   I have another  couple of lots to finish for next weeks celebrations as well, but this is the big group and I have another week to finish the rest.

That's a lot of assorted fiddly sewing, but I'm sure it will be appreciated by the recipients!

I hope so.
