Christmas appears to be here. My parents have arrived and my brother (and family) is coming in a few days.
I've made fruit mince tarts, and even put kitties on a few of them.
The house is becoming more of a home, and the carpet is due for tomorrow so then we can finally unpack everything (once christmas is over of course).
On the craft front, I've finished another Christmas present.
A few years ago I made The Best Library Bag Ever (tm) for my niece who was starting school
Next year my nephew is starting school so of course I had to make him a library bag too. It had to be cool like hers, but different. So I present to you The Best Library Bag Ever II.
The books with titles were machine embroidered. The green one on an angle was supposed to be Where the Wild Things Are, but the embroidery was too long for the book unfortunately. The back of the bag is the woodgrain fabric which adds to the bookcase feel of it. It's padded to protect the books inside and I've quilted around all the books and around the inside edges of the shelves. I hope he likes it.
And yes, I'm overdue for my last Christmas decoration pattern. The scanner wasn't working when I tried so I shall try and remedy that tonight.
