Secret Santa

Finally i have gotten around to posting my pics of my swap i got from the lovely LISA.

Its not all in the pic as DD2 decided the little christmas deco's had to go on the tree as soon as it was opened and mummy didnt get a say.

But here is the bag i love it i just have to tell DD15 to keep her hands off and the material was made into a dress for DD2 as the one i made wasnt good enough once she saw this one so thank you Lisa it was great

More sewing

Well i know im supposed to be on bed rest and i admit i did the little one by hand sewing but i had to use the machine to do eldest daughters.

Believe me now when i say i wont be sitting at the machine

i could hardly move when i finished so am now on my bed resting while i update the blog and things.

The little one is out of polar fleece and i stitched up the side so it was inclosed but it gaped around her head so added a scrap bit and made it into a scarf i think it turned out cool. So did one for the biggest child but as i said i did have to use the machine as it was wool so it needed proper edging on it so it didnt fray.

My 5 year old has now picked out her material so i am going to handsew that tonight for her when im hopefully not in so much pain.
