Giving and Receiving Handmade Style

As another Christmas Day draws to a close, I'd like to wish you all the very best for this Festive and Holiday season. I was thrilled to receive this Handmade crocheted rug from my lovely sister in law, Kim .... I've often admired hers, the colour combinations are just lovely ... thanks so much Kim!!!

 Over the past 2 weeks, I've made 16 pairs of Boxer shorts and 25 Screen Printed Tote Bags for gifts ....
 Mostly for the blokes .....
 But some for girls ....
 Also made a couple of iPad covers, the first time I've used these great little Twist Locks ....





 I used the Photo Emulsion screens I made at my recent TAFE course for these bags ...
And finally, one of my paintings for mum - she loved it!!!
And after a big big lunch, I now need a little lie down.

  3. Merry Christmas! Your presents look fantastic, I especially like your painting. It reminds me of the "bottle brush" bushes in Florida, where I grew up.
