Jobs finished

At last I have some more finished orders.

Firstly the Princess and the Pea! Here she is ready for packaging up and dropping off in Durham.

(The colours in the bottom photo are a bit weird)

I had a bit of a disaster with the mattresses - they were fine when I made them but we were just putting it all together and discovered that three had got marked during washing/ironing so I had to frantically make more at the last minute.

While we were in Durham Daisy and Fred went to visit Father Christmas (a good one too!) but Dorothy decided to give it a miss - I think she is getting a bit too grown up!

I also managed to finish this cushion cover
(it needs washing to remove the pencil marks and the photo isn't great but it gives you an idea!)

and this birth sampler (which needed to be similar to one the family already had which was a print of a Debbie Mumm angel with handwritten details around the outside)
(I will iron it before I give it to them!!!!)

The remaining orders for christmas are
  1. A doll with clothes made from a baby's dress
  2. camoflague bag with pencil strip for Leon
  3. camoflague bag with pencil strip for Hannah
  4. Art bag for Jazi
  5. Art bag for Finlay
  6. Frame picture for Niamh
Then I need to make some Christmas presents.........................

About 13!

And that's after I decided I had to buy presents rather than make them for half of the family so it could have been a lot worse!

Do you think I'll get it all done on time?

I really hope so!

Are you Celebrity name dropping again - making a pencil bag for the winner of the X-Factor?

Good list glad to see your nephew and niece feature in the list for presents - what happened to the rest? Oh r they the ones you are buying?

I have spent the weekend tidying - John is bringing some German colleagues home for tea (fish n chips from the local shop) and they want to eat them in the paper! Good job Mum's not watching!

Dad tells me he has made a little list especially for you for Christmas.

Take care,

Ally (your real sister without a blog!)

Oh you are so clever! The Princess and the Pea is just as cute as I thought she'd be and your samplers are gorgeous. Lucky people who will receive them!

I'm sure you'll get it all done - then I hope you'll collapse for a well earned G&T!
