FNSI Results....

 Last night I sat and stitched this pretty Christmas tree design form http://elefantz.blogspot.com/
This morning it turned into a cushion......
 I also turned this $1.00 op-shop find for my work KK into.....
 A chef's apron with a simple flower applique on the pocket.....I hope she likes it??
 I also started working on this tea towel before I went out to babysit and it's turning into another gift for my secret KK
I hope she likes the table runner it will become when I get it finished.I hope to have it finished this weekend if I get my you know what into gear.I'll post a photo of it when it's done :)
I also plan on baking a date and walnut loaf using the loaf tin I bought at the op-shop the same time I bought this tea towel and chef's apron....total cost $5 and my time and scraps from my stash.
In case you're wondering the theme for this years secret KK at work is buying from an op-shop and putting your own little twist to it which I've done LOL.

You have been busy, Barb. :)
Lovely work as usual, too.
I have Jenny's design printed out too. Thought I might do it in green this time with red decos. Yours looks lovely as a cushion. I just need to finish my last SAL block first, I'm not getting much done at night lately as I am so tired. :(
