Christmas Bunnies

The fabric lining their ears is Minky Dot - a REALLY soft, gorgeous to touch, synthetic (sadly) fabric that cannot go near an iron, but is heavenly to feel.

Grace & Hannah will be opening gifts containing these bunnies on Xmas day.  

We did advent gifts for both girls this year.  Last year Hannah noted (with dismay) that I had not written a note with each gift - I corrected that oversight this year.  So never mind the wrapping of 48 gifts... the writing of 48 notes was no mean feat!

Here they are under the girls' bedroom tree awaiting morning (they arrived in the UK late - I was slow getting all those notes written) when the girls get to catch up & open 6 days in one!

Okay, I've been quiet for too long!  I vow to improve my sewing to photographing what I have sewn ratio (s:ps ... now:  s>ps, hopefully soon s=ps... you know you're a geek when...!!!), both so you can see what I have been up to, and secondly to keep a record for myself.  I have such an awfully bad memory, I often forget things I have made!  Which can make for nice surprises...

Visiting SA last month, I saw friends using/ enjoying items I had made (and promptly forgotten) and was inordinately proud of myself for having made them!

I have been working on Xmas gifts & my older niece's BDay gift, and as long as Colleen can keep her from seeing this, here are some shots of Hannah's birthday sheep...
