More Advent Presents

Here are the pressies from days 8 to 15
I received from Victoria.
The photograph isn't very good, but all the
gifts are wonderful - look at the mini pink and green
bunting, it's so delightful as are the handmade
rose stud earrings and the crocheted jar cover. 
Thanks again Victoria!
Some of the gifts I handmade for Victoria are below.
 A fabric heart pocket.
 A Post-It note holder, fabric covered
and the square is a little tile.
The inside looks like this.
A Shamballa style bracelet.
This is actually the first one I ever made
and I chose two of Victoria's favourite colours - pink and green.
Finally, one of Victoria's likes is bunting so I made her
some with her name on it - the fabric letters are from
the 'Word Play Alphabet' Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bigz die.

.. also made a pretty box for it to go in.
I must take this opportunity of showing a wonderful gift
I received from a lovely Blogging friend

It's a felt envelope embellished with some
gorgeous postcard fabric.
Here's the front, and you can see some
postcards Sherry enclosed from her home town.
I've just realised I didn't photograph it closed
so you can't see the cute little buttons sewn on the flap.
Thanks again Sherry (SSD!), and as you already know,
I absolutely love it!
 I hope all your Christmas preparations
are going to plan - I've wrapped most of my presents, although
still several to buy - and I haven't posted my UK cards yet!
Sorry, I haven't visited many blogs recently, but I'll try
to come and see you soon.
Thanks for looking x
