As I'm generally an early riser I was able to do some sewing before breakfast this morning. Our visitors arrived late last night so I knew that once the day started there would be no time for making my daily block.
And the day turned out quite different to how I thought it would.
Before I knew it, this was happening. My friend and I got busy —
This is how the garden looked in October - really lovely, but that rose had grown everywhere and needed getting under control —
There was also a massive hydrangea that was beautiful when it flowered but quickly turned brown as opposed to slowly fading like hydrangeas normally do.
After a few hours work the men stopped by to help clear the mess —
The final result —
This was the sewing this morning —
And a wee pile that hopefully will be transformed into blocks tomorrow morning while everyone is sleeping.
Here is another wee gift I made this Christmas. The design is based on a Japanese Rice Bag but I don't imagine rice will be kept in this one. Sorry no link to this but googling Rice bags will bring up a few choices to use if you want to make one.
Turned out rather sweet I thought.
'til next time,
