Some christmas finishes

Most weekends we like to cook a few treats for lunch boxes during the week, Number 3 son wanted to try cooking with me this time so we made a carrot cake. He borrowed the cook book from the school library. Nicky did most of the work while I supervised and kept my hands in my pocket so I didn't take over. He was so proud of his efforts, the cake by the way is delicious, I hope there will be some left for lunch boxes tomorrow.

My on line stitching group had an ornament swap, my partner was Roseanne. She made me the pretty heart ornament pictured above and I made her the ornament below.









I have been busy finishing off a few christmas gifts, I made these book bags for some international friends,







These smaller ones were fun to do, they are on their way to England. Just a few more gifts to finish off and I'm done for another year.

Did you find some sewing time today? I hope so.


I'm wondering if someone can tell me how to change the colour of the words on my header photo.I have looked right through blogger but I must be missing something. I want to change it to make it stand out a bit more, Any help would be great. Thankyou

Boys and men should learn how to cook. Great Job! Looks yummy! The ornaments are darling! I have an ornament exchange next Monday at my guild meeting. Can you forward me the email from Sarah if you still have it? I want to change my colors also and couldn't figure out how to do it either. Thanks.
