Week One!!

Hi Ladies

I am having a slow start maybe it is because I am doing a lot of of hand sewing with beading (my Christmas cards) but I am enjoying the challenge.  The first project was the quilted  Christmas bib for my beautiful granddaughter which was instant gratification!!  Have also enclosed a photo of the Ginger Bread House tree decoration I made for my 3 and a half  year old granddaughter which I made before the challenge started.







Then I started on the snowflake design Christmas Cards - not a very clear photo but I have added gold thread and beads inside the snow flakes which looks great.



I have sewn 4 and I have another 4 to to be done.  These are for my Kiwi and Aussie friends and cousins I am afraid our English friends and relatives will be getting bought cards.

Now to start on the second week where I am hoping to be a little faster............

Cheers
Oriel

  6. You have made some really pretty things, which I am sure will be much appreciated. There is nothing like hand sewing - it does produce such lovely results.
