On Sunday Afternoon...

Sunday was so very cold but sunny here.. perfect for a cuppa on the patio in the mid-morning sun & then some afternoon sewing... heater ON of course!
 
I found a tutorial HERE recently for a tea bag wallet... what a great idea... so I used some very appropriate fabric... & two hours later...
More correctly, I got out the fabric last week & then wandered aimlessly online, searching for some inspiration of what to do with it! So easy to make & now I have some more little things for the giftie box.
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*
This morning was the first time I had a chance to visit blogs of those who joined in FNSI... better late than never... wow, what a great number of names there were... & some wonderful work being done. What a success Wendy!

I am hoping that the awful windy weather here is not keeping Santa's Elves from delivering my Christmas In July parcel... it's lovely to see so many ladies are excited to open their gifts, so I hope mine will arrive here soon...

School term has started, so it's back to some semblance of routine here... including that I will be working two days a week for the next month or so... a little less stitching time, but I do love the work!

♥Happy Stitching!♥

Great use for teacup fabric...I was given something similar as a gift when I went overseas a few years ago - emergency rations! - and it has much use...
