Anyway, enough of that. I made two more pouches today. And I am really happy with the fabric choices. First up, I used some of my Mimosa in one.
I felt the need to do more of the stem stitch and colonial knot combination, because I'm in love with it. And I find embroidery a super zen-like relaxing thing to do.
Next I dove into my fabric stash and came up with this orange and aqua combination that made me smile. I went with some aqua top stitching for detail on the linen as I didn't have enough time for more hand stitching, unfortunately.
Finally, I made two little lavender bags. These were so, so quick to make and just add a nice touch to a gift box. Nothing like a little bondaweb and some perle cotton to make something look like it took more time than it did.
I am now working on the final Christmas gift that I am sewing. I am really happy with what I have got done, but - seriously - I need to concentrate on the Christmas food now. And the socialising. Maybe more than a bit of cleaning and organising to do before either of those two things happen though.
How about you? Are you ready for Christmas or still trying to get on top of it like I am?
