Sneak Peek to Christmas and other stuff

Well, I have been totally inspired and motivated to make some little things for Christmas gifts. My friends and I generally don't exchange large gifts as that is not why we celebrate Christmas. But generally I like to give a little token to my close friends as a way of sharing the spirit of Christmas. So here is a sneak peek of what I have been making this year....I usually try and do everything the same with a few minor differences. Sometimes I make biscuits, but I am being slack this year and have bought something else yummy to go in them. I will also be making some little stitchery tags to go with these...but you will have to wait to see these as I haven't started stitching these yet.....My friend Sue sent me the idea and a couple of prototypes for these little pyramid bags (thanks Sue!)...they are just SO cute....I can see myself making many of these in the future...


I have also made this little quilt to send to someone to help another person out....why is it that the things I really really like I find hard to part with!!!


And then, there is this little wall hanging....I am hoping that the person who I sent it to has received it....It was lots of fun to make and I hope it helps to remind her of the times she loves to spend at the beach in summer....it is made with one of my favourite range of fabrics from a few years back called "Seaside Rose"...The pattern is from Leanne Beasley's first book "Living the Dream". I like the look of it hanging up with a cute little "fishermans Basket" I bought from an Op Shop some time back....I made the hanging rack myself...

I hope you are all enjoying a lovely relaxing weekend...see you soon

I love the pyramid bags!!! they are really cute.. I'm impressed how many you've made already. Are they fast to made? I'm looking for something little and easy to make for gifts, too.
