Handmade Monday No. 95

Due to the sad passing of Mum in Law last weekend have not done much in the way of making as so much to sort out this week.

I made the following for a dear friend's Birthday on the 28th November, Happy Birthday Kim, am sure she would not mind me showing you. A gift and tote bag  and a good way for her to advertise her business. The writing looks blurry but not on the photo think something to do with the shading made by the stitches.

On the Christmas front now must start making like mad for the gift and card side for family and friends.  Do not have a big family and only a select group of friends, not into gifts for all and sundry would rather concentrate on those that mean something to us. All will be revealed after the big day just in case any of the recipients have a nose at my blog.

On the home front all gifts are wrapped and under the tree, decorations up and the freezer is almost full, so ahead of schedule with Waitrose booked up to the big day.
