Stitching 'Smalls' Exchange Received and a gift...
The lovely pinkeep and a matching fob are stitched with a variegated red and teamed with bright red pins and cording. The lining for the reverse is a bright red silk (I love silk) and Paula's finish is so neat.
It also has an ingenious idea of a magnet on the back of the pinkeep to put needles on which you can see in this picture below. I am not sure of the colour red used for the stitching or who the design is by but Paula might put the details on her blog:) Thank-you again Paula so much... I love it and you have got my week off to a great start :)
Now to move on to the beautiful gift I have received from my DD who is 8...she has been having her first tries on the Sewing Machine whilst at her Grans (Gran is more patient than me!). When she came home, this is what had been made for me... all by herself :))) My DD had the idea, chose the fabrics a green wool felt with 'Children of Light' as the contrast, cut it out with two types of scissors, both layers, threaded the machine herself, then sewed it all on her own (with supervision from my Mum). She has even sewn the real Swarovski crystal button to it herself with a press-stud on the other side. You go girl...lol...pinching your Grans best buttons for your Mum...lol. I bet I don't have to tell you... as you will already have guessed ;-) that this is, of course, a case for me to keep my tape-measure in...so how about that!!! I bet you are all wanting one now as she has done it so very well with nearly perfectly straight lines!! My DD is going to update her little blog with this and something else she has done in the next day or two... if she can squeeze that into her busy life :-)
Thank-you all again for taking the time to visit my blog, have a great start to the week and I will be back soon as my exchange pieces should have arrived/start arriving this week to my secret partners ;-)
