Wow I can't believe how long it has been since I was here last. My flu has gone, only to be replaced with other health issues; nothing life threatening so all is good.
In amongst all the usual things of life, work, kids etc, I have been busy working on some christmas presents which I thought I would share with you. One of them is still a secret so that will have to wait for another week, but these can be shown now. i have made two table runners for a couple of friends. One of my friends has the surname of 'Noel' and it has been a bit of a joke at christmas time; you dont see my surname on all the christmas stuff! So i happened across some fabric with Noel printed on it and made a table runner around that.
The next runner is for another friend, I had the pattern for the angel stitchery and worked the runner around that using material from work. I am pleased with the way the different fabrics went together; this is still a skill I have to work at.
The last present is for someone special and while it wont be quite finished, it will be in an okay state to be given as a gift and I do think the recipient will not mind.
