how was your weekend?
I worked on Saturday and on Sunday felt like having a day at home. Mr B took himself off to an exhibition, Youngest Boy was staying at his cousins and Eldest Boy was sleeping a party off (!!) which meant I was able to indulge myself by spending the day making things.
And I was in a festive mood by the time I'd finished, because this is what I made for selling at the craft fair on the 16th November (yikes!!).
Badges, good for stocking fillers I thought!
Christmas cards with badge
Christmas card with brooch
Christmas spice scented sachets
I made these last week but didn't get around to photographing them,
I actually like these much more than I thought I would, which is just as well as I made a silly mistake on one (twisted ribbon) so I'm more than happy to keep it!
On Friday evening I made a cover for my Christmas cushion cover!!
The trouble with the Christmas one is that it's too early to put out but I have nowhere to store it until Christmas.
Some time ago I bought this fabric (I have a passion for anything with deer on as well as birds) with the intention of making a cushion cover but just didn't get around to it. I have masses of it left and am now thinking of making myself a bag with it too!
(Excuse all the pins, everything is waiting to be finished by hand.)
Have you started your Christmas making yet?
And finally for those of you who, like me, love magazines and Christmas, the Ideal Home Christmas magazine is out on Wednesday - yippee!
Have a fab week and thanks for visiting, and welcome to my new followers.
