Flower Power

Managed to do a spot of sewing over the last few days. My Nan wanted a bag like the one I made for my Aunt Pats Birthday so I decided that theis lovely Pansy fabric I had in my stash would be just right for her. It's her Birhtday in a couple of weeks time (83) so for the first time in a while I have a present made in advance. I always seem to leave things until the last minute and end up running round like a headless chicken. Now there are only the two of us at home I'm sure I could be a bit more organised!

Yesterday I went shopping at Leamington Spa with my friend Siobhan. When we dropped Jack off there a few weeks ago we had a quick look at the shops but I wanted to go back when I had more time to have a browse. There are some lovely shops (sorry but I was having such a good day I forgot to take any photos!) I could have spent a fortune. I only bought a few things but got lots of ideas for Christmas presents and things that I could make myself.

Yesterday was a good day I also made a sale in my Folksy shop, the first for a while. There's not much in there at all now so think the sewing machine will have to come out today!

I have joined in this Christmas swap have a look and see if you want to give it a go.
