What I Have Been Stitching & Lovely Mail

Now that the recipients have their gifts I can show you what I have been stitching. I made little hexie scissor fobs and attached them to little scissors with a tip guard.
  I love these little scissors NO holes in your sewing caddy or bag! I made them for the girls in my stitching group.
I made a sewing hexagon box for my lovely friend Lorel. this photo doesn't have the tassel...sorry! It does look nice with it's tassel.
I used some of my treasured French General fabrics because she is special. Lorel's scissor fob had to match her sewing box....of course!
I am a big fan of the gorgeous buttons from Yvonne W.Designs and had so much fun making these cute Tree extra with a sweet stocking has gone to my lovely friend Ann's.
Love Aussie made!
You may remember that I made lots of little stockings....
Well 2 of my dear ones love shabby I made PINK!
Namely my DD and our very own Shez. They do look pretty.
My poor postie tooted his horn because he couldn't fit my mail in the mailbox this!
My lovely friend Shez who is generosity personified sent me this beautiful wall hanger with Christmas Kookaburra's and I just love it. I have secretly fancied this pattern to make for myself for ages...very excited! Extra special to have it made by a friend!
Thank you so much Shez xx
Beautiful Barb popped the most gorgeous little Elf ornie in a card for me...oh he is tooo cute!
Thank you Barb for your kindness, I love him to bits xx
I do love a pretty card as I often tell you....well this beautiful one came from the very clever Karen from Sunburnt Quilts.Karen makes gorgeous cards....
Thank you xx
I know it was a very long post but just had to get it all in.....hope you aren't all asleep!
I love this saying -
"If you can't find Christmas in your heart you won't find it under the Christmas Tree"
Have yourself a lovely day,
Namaste and Blessings,
