Sunday Secret Sewing

Today I've been finishing a long overdue thank you - a 'just because' gift for a good friend who's been having a tough time recently.

Who's it for? Here are a few clues.  She will always offer to help out, loves stars and is fond of Christmas. She swears like a sailor and makes us all laugh with her tales of sewing and home life.

Guessed yet? If she is reading this she'll know who she is. Many of you probably do too!

Here's a sneaky peek.


I'll post it tomorrow along with my Mouthy Stitches' tote and fob, which I finished on Friday.

Mouthy Stitches' Tote & Fob - Ready to Ship!

Short and sweet today.  We have had crazy intermittent wifi connection the last couple of days and I'm quitting while I'm ahead.  I'm a little behind on my blog reading but will do my best to catch up!
