While my husband was busy baking mince pies for I went to my studio and made a little bag for coins. A friend asked to make this little bag and she enjoyed using at because she texted me at 2230 about how gorgeous it was! This is all handmade, 100 % cotton with metal frame.
Sue, Ursula, Theresa and I sat together stitched and shared our news. Theresa was making a bag for her friend, Sue came with her Portuguese carpet and Ursula did hand quilting.
I showed them how to ues fabrics to wrap presents. In 2007 when I visited Japan and bought a book and some fabric to wrap presents. It is a quite expensive way of treating your friends but I do think it is a very eco friendly.
