For the first time EVER I didn't take enough work away with me. I still had some knitting to keep me occupied but that isn't stitching. I was so desperate that I got to work on one of those free little cross stitch kits they put on the front of craft magazines. This one was from Molly Makes Magazine.
I bought this magazine because I was starting the process of designing the cuffs for our January Children's class and this issue featured bracelets.
But what to do with it? I have made a little bag to put some fragrant hand made soap in as a Xmas gift. Some rose fabric for the back and a matching strip for the band on the front.
Add some ribbons for the draw-string to enclose the soap. One quite nice Xmas present.
I'm still not quite sure how I let that happen. I did have a nasty dose of food poisoning the night before we left and was still suffering all the next day. That can be the only explanation for such a bad oversight. I must collect some of those little kits for the future. The Aida fabric would also work well for dried lavender or other Pot Pouri and all this time I have dismissed these little kits, silly me.
