These have been gifted

.... so I can now share.

The teacup stand was made using Grandma's last remaining one. She was called May Mafeking because of when she was born! The handle is dodgy so its not useable anymore, the plate at the bottom is a vintage bread & butter plate. Drilled by my own fair hand.

The cushion is a hand knit cable jumper conversion, it has a brown floral inner. This has been filled with fleece offcuts and is very heavy. It has a criss-cross corset style ribbon fastening.

I did make one other gift but completely forgot to photograph it - doh.

My view today

I wanted to get in the Christmas spirit so donned my handmade Rudolph. He has been smiling up at me all day. Now which Christmas jumper to wear tomorrow ....

Basket lid

This is to go in a bathroom so I made it out of waterproof material with a jolly checked lining. Its got simple jersey for the ties as these should be more robust than ribbon. I thought the blue contrasted with the rust nicely. Its off to its new home soon.

On the lap tonight

I'm doing sixty (yes SIXTY) hexies for a solid round on the now huge scrap hexie piece. I'll wait and see if anyone reckonises their old clothes in this blue check. Still don't know what I'll use it for.

Christmas Garland

This is all properly sewn together, only took three years to put all the ingredients together permanently. The binding is old jeans made into bias binding, strips were1 1/2 inches wide. It hangs really well, stiff & bendy.
