Some Presents .............

It's ages since I blogged ................. not much to tell really. I haven't been doing much stitching but I don't seem to be have been doing much else either - the garden is crying out for attention but the weather being so warm for this time of year means the mining beas that have taken up residence in the flower bed are still a nuisance. I did add a little decoration to one of the bowls for mum's birthday .................



And I've been doing some folded patchwork which is quite fun but I won't show all of it as it's for Christmas and the intended recipient just might see it ............

I love theses fabric bowls. I can't work out how you do them. How would you like to be 'tagged' when I do my next blogpost? I have to tag 6 people to give 7 random facts about themselves. I won't do it unless you want to. You have to link back to the peson who tagged you and then tag 6 more.

I love how these purple bowls turned out. I just found a cool tutorial for making folded flying geese. I'll send you a link via e-mail.

G'day Shelley,
I love your pots - I'm just a tad jealous of your Mum now - now if she decides she doesn't want it I'm quite willing to pay the postage to get it to Oz ... ha ha.
I had a go at doing this at our Craft & Quilt Fair workshop - well I haven't shown a soul mine it is so disgusting - just needs a snake to put in it actually - so I'm so very impressed with your bowls - great tension ... does it take long to get it right?
Also am loving your patchwork too love the colours & it's stripped too... great stuff ... OOroo ... Bethel of Bethania
