We got so spoilt with Christmas pressies from the family this year, loads of gorgeous things. I made a little arrangement so you could see what we got.
I told my Mum I wanted good sheets and towels so she kindly obliged. The sheets are to die for, 400 count Egyptian cotton, I can't wait to get into bed at night and very loathe to leave in the morning!
I also got scented roses, a fanciful ornamental shoe (which has planted a seed!), web cam, food vouchers, bath goodies, book, shawl, shower gel, painted mushroom (Princess), lip gloss, decorated hand duster (Mum), lavender plants, herb plants, yummy cheese spread (Amah), lavender soap and key ring. Some of those were joint presents for Babes and I, like the sheets, food vouchers, web cam etc. Lucky I am good at sharing!!!
Didn't we do well though!!!
Along with the world wide recession we have our own personal one going on so I made all of our gifts for other people. I made our little Chinese friends their own Christmas stocking, the same as I did for The Princess last year, vintage chenille and fur!!
I sewed four of these aprons, one adult size and three children's size, one for a friend, two for our little Chinese friends and one for The Princess.
All three little girls also got a white t-shirt that I had hand stitched hearts and a button on to.
Years ago Babes granddad had made these wooden toadstools, so I painted one for each of the girls also. This one is The Princess's.
My Mum, Babes two grandmothers and Babes Aunty all received one of these bags made by moi!
They each got three coat hangers, a heart and a set of shoe stuffers, all heavily filled with lavender from my garden. I also 'tarted' up a bar of lavender soap for each of them.
Lots of people received these home baked and decorated cookies The Princess and I made together. We had so much fun doing them!
I have other stuff I made as well but can't show at the moment as some people haven't received their gift as of yet.
Loved Christmas this year, loved making things for everyone and loved seeing everyone open what I had made them!
Next post I will show you the dress I made for my fairy niece. I am thrilled with it.
Bye for now
