I've had these blocks sitting around on my ironing board for ages,I finally decided today was the day to get this flimsy put together......boy it's good to get stuff closer to the finish satge.I just need to get some backing fabric and then I can finish this of and put it in with my Christmas decorations.....yep this ones for me! :)
I couldn't resist and finally made up one of these small thread catchers I've been watching pop up on blogs everywhere and just had to join in the fun......
then I spotted this tutorial on Fiona's blog http://bubzrugz.com.au/2012/12/needlecases-and-friends.html and I just couldn't waste the scraps leftover from my thread catcher so made up two slightly diferent sized needle keeps using her tutorial.Thanks Fiona :)
These are all going into my Birthday basket,so three more for the Birthday-love stash.Hopefully blogger will sort out the posting photo's difficulty real soon as posting photo's the way I am now is such a pain! I hope to have more photo's soon :)
