Completed Projects June-December 2018

I thought I would put the rest of my completed projects for this year in one post seeing the year is over tonight!!!

In June I completed a little Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched Needlecase


and the back
Very cute even if I say so myself

In August I made a Book Cushion cover for JoJo for her Birthday with a Christmas theme
You can tuck a book in the front part

For December I trimmed some tea towels for gifts

 And here they are all rolled up
Tutorial for tea towels at Elefantz
Thank You Jenny for this excellent Tutorial
I find I have made quite a few of these!!!

One more Shepherds Bush stocking

to hang with all the others!!!

And to finish off this year I came across a lovely idea at Made in the Monaro which is a little hand made shop in Cooma
Simply get 2 pages from a magazine
Stitch them together and leave an opening at the top
and voila there you have a little gift bag to pop your gift in
Sure uses up some of those magazines!!!

On that note I would like to wish my readers a very Happy New Year
All the best in Health and Happiness and World Peace for 2019

I just love your stockings! Way cute. Happy new year to you. Who knows, we might meet in Sydney again this year. The Sydney fireworks will be the first we get to see in Holland, watching them this year will be extra special.
