This is the last Christmas post... I didn't have time to find all the pics, so I put them here later than I wanted. As these were present I didn't want to put them on before Christmas, then the holidays kept me very busy, so this is the time. I hope you won't be bored because of them.
Then at the weekend I have to start this year's projects. I have a lot in mind (as usual) but we have an extremely busy time at work (end of term) so I have to do a lot of paperwork instead of sewing :( That is not fair, but .... I still have photos, to share, so I am not sad (yet).
So this year I decided to make lots of pressies, but I didn't have time (I did a lot in wrapping and shopping with friends - which means talking, getting the Christmas feeling having friends around - etc.) to do all, so I made only these.
This was made for my patchwork friend. This is also a piece of the Handmade magazine I got from Juliet (the puds are from that as well). I machine stitched it. This was my first try to stitch drawn pictures.... Not perfect, but I was brave enough to give it to my friend.
And there is a picture of the back.
And this is just a little something. It was stitched by hand (started last Christmas... Did I mention that I was a really very slow person?)
and then quilted by machine (some holly and a 'Merry Christmas' wish in Hungarian). This became a present for a Lady in my patchwork group.
And this is the jam I made. This is my second jam ever. I got it through a forum (it is a doll making forum but before Christmas this was the favourite thing to make). I learnt a lot of nice things about it, so i decided to give it a try. I made some for my B, my stepfather and my best friend. It is made of apple and there is some orange and cinnamon in it. Everyone liked it! :D
