I made several zipper pouches as gifts this year for Christmas. Now that they have all been given, I can show pictures on my blog. This one was made for my MIL. She loves sheep and I have had this sheep fabric in my stash for a year or two, hoping to make something for my MIL with it. My MIL was delighted with her pouch and looks forward to using it when she comes for an overnight visit at our house.
This bag was made for one of my nieces. She has converse running shoes so this fabric called to me when it was time to make her zippered pouch.
Here is a picture of my nieces with their pouches. The second pouch had bicycles on it.
I made a couple of pouches for friends for Christmas too, but somehow, forgot to take pictures of them before they were gifted.
During the holidays, I have had some time to work on my counted cross stitch snowmen picture. Santa brought me a new Ott floor lamp for Christmas so now I can see better for stitching in the evenings.
I still need to outline the two yellow and black birds.
I also added some branch extensions to the second snowman. This picture is coming along nicely. I don't have a deadline for when it needs to be finished. I am just enjoying the process. I hope to have some more stitching time today, if our family gift from Santa does not distract me too much. The three of us spent a few hours last night working on our new puzzle. Most of the easy parts are done...now for the background... 1000 pieces...
I will be linking up with Kathy and the other Slow Sunday Stitchers tomorrow. Happy New Year!
