A quick scroll through my photo albums, shows that I have been particularly slack with documenting my sewing for the last few months. Those that know me, would understand that this has been because I was diagnosed late last year with Thyroid Cancer, and I had surgery for that cancer in January 2017. This has taken up my time, energy and attention as you can imagine. So I apologise, but I will be doing a couple of “catch up” posts.
To start with, I have my xmas sewing. Primarily I tend to hand make small gifts for my work friends. I try to get them done through the year. Some years I make the same for everyone, and some years, I make a bunch of different things. For 2016, I went for multiples in a small number of things.
Xmas table runners – I made 3 of these. Thankfully I keep my gift lists every year, so I made sure these went to recipients who didn’t get runners from me in previous years.
Makeup pouches – I made 8 of these, and I think they were the best of everything. Made using scraps of silk (repurposed obi’s) with quilted satin linings, I filled these with a mini handcream or soap.
I didn’t photograph everything, because ….. well because I just didn’t. Still they were all well received.
