~other gifts~
YD started making herself this nightie 2 years ago.
I thought it would be nice to finish it for her!
I made another little pouch so that's 5 of these -
important to get the numbers right for OPAM!!!
I made some more gift-tags!!
Hopefully I have got everything - it is easy to lose track at this time of the year!!
Happy stitching everyone, have a great day,

Dear Raewyn,
what lovely "things" you made. Two of them are on my "To-do-list" also.
With the best wishes for the New Year 2014.

I am in awe of all you made, Raewyn. Handmade gifts are the best and every one of these is a treasure!
I had to laugh at myself on the first photo--I was reading the stitchery without enlarging it and I thought the last word was "fabric". Made sense, but seemed odd, so I looked again and realized it said "family". Yes, I should be wearing glasses!
All of the stitchery pieces are so cute--and that spool pouch is wonderful!
You are amazing!

so many lovely gifts you have made her, I am sure they were all delighted with them, I know I would be. You have been so very busy, not sure where you find the time with the farm to run and all those cows to keep an eye on

Hi Raewyn,
I was chatting with Noela the other day and she had the gifts you made her for Christmas 2013. I know it has been a long time since but I was wondering if you remember the name of the pattern. Noela's desk tidy and needle case are brilliant, you made a lovely gift and she obviously loves them because she is still using them.
