Friday Night with Friends saw me finishing the Red Brolly Christmas Hanger. I love it and despite thinking that it might be fiddly to sew it was surprisingly easy and came together quickly. And........I sewed it together at night !!! I always try to do some craft after work in the evenings, but sometimes I am soooo tired I make a mess of it and have to spend time unpicking or even re-cutting a piece! And lots of choice words!!! LOL!
Just trying to show you the sides here. It's quite roomy and I will be able to fill it with plenty of goodies.
I made the hanging ribbon a little longer than the pattern stated so that I could tie a decent bow of sorts.
Might get another couple done before Christmas.
I also tried to do some stitching on one of the blocks for "Cake Walk" but the green pencil is fading and combined with night light I had to give up. I will need to get out the light box to retrace it again. NOT HAPPY! Won't be using that pen for tracing a stitchery or need to make sure I press harder next time!
Coming home from work on Friday afternoon I found a surprise in the mailbox. The postman had left my gift from Cheryll for participation in the "F" Challenge.
No thanks necessary Cheryll. I was having the time of my life trying to think of things for the swap! But........thanks all the same. They are lovely FQ's and I will have to make something out of them soon. Also loved what they were wrapped in............pattern paper. Maybe I can steal this idea for some of my things as I have a lot of patterns ( most with pieces missing as I am not too good at returning them back to the original packet) and can put them to use! Thanks for nifty idea Cheryll.
