On the first Monday of every month my two crafty buddies come over to play in the cabin. As this was the last one of the year we handed out some pressies. I gave Linda and Tasha a purple glass cake stand and a Quilter's Diary each. Also a great bunch of coloured sleigh bells. I had completely forgotten we were exchanging pressies so I hadn't wrapped them. Linda got hers in an Argos bag and Tasha got hers in a Marks & Spencer bag. No expense spared you know! You can see those items on Linda's blog. We usually have a dinner in the cabin but this year it's a bit tight time wise so we are having one for my birthday in January. No doubt I will find some more pressies for my pals.
Linda gave me this fabulous crocheted wreath and a kilner jar full of ribbons, button, hand sewing needles and sewing machine needles, a reel of cotton and some tape with "I love handmade" on it. The top of the jar had some fabric and wadding made into a pin cushion. Such a fab idea.
Tasha's bundle of goodness included this terrific book of knitted baubles. I am soooo going to put these on my tree next year. I think I may even start knitting them at the beginning of next year so I don't have a meltdown at the end of November (again!). Also these fingerless gloves. Aren't they just so glamorous? She also gave us a packet of chrismassy serviettes and a wire heart infilled with teeny teeny sleigh bells.
Right best go and finish some of me knitting.
Thanks for popping by.
Sees yer tomorrow.
