Little Gifts

These two little gifts were made last week. One for a lovely friend and the other may be for my Stitchers Angel. Depends what else I make as the projects are all so sweet. (I have combined a 2008 pattern from Lynette Anderson with the current one from Helen Stubbings).

Another sewing mat. This one now belongs to Julia who was the lucky winner of my 2 year anniversary back in July. I also popped a couple gifties in the pockets.

Are you making a sewing mat for Jenny's September challenge? I'm a month behind as I hope to get a sewing machine cover finished by the end of the month.

Don't forget to click on the link and visit Among The Gum Trees if you haven't done so already. There's a real buzz in the tree tops.

Hello Narelle! The scissor holders you made are just beautiful! You are SO talented! Maybe when I grow up I can learn to sew like you!LOL!
Are those cute scissors typical Australian? Or specially used for embroidery/sewing projects? We do not have them here in Mexico so I am wondering if there is a reason for their shape, etc.
As always, it is a pleasure to be able to stop by for a visit and drool over your incredibly beautiful projects.

Very peaceful - since today is international peace day - regards from Mexico ~
