Before children...

These were the sorts of things I spent my spare time doing! These were all done from patterns, so I can't take credit for the design, but they were all painstakingly handmade by myself. I was decorating the house and reflecting on how many things I have made, so thought I would pop some of them up here.

 A flashback of craft if you like....



My Santa Swag, I still love them!

My quilted wall hanging, all the panels are hand blanket stitched and hand quilted. It was not hand sewn together however! Every Christmas I hang it and remember how much work went into it.

Beaded and padded felt stockings. The nativity one was from a pattern, so was the Santa one, only I didn't buy the patten, I drew it up myself! Madly I did two of Santa and gave one away for a friend's son's first Christmas. Sadly her other children have missed out!

Wow look at the detail in those stockings! My friend did a lovely cross stitch for my eldest and sadly the rest have missed out too :-) She didn't have children herself or nieces and nephews then either :-)

Wow! You are a real crafty type aren't you?! They are all amazing! I've seen them before, and knew you made them, but I've never quite contemplated how much work must have gone into them. They look great!
