More scrappy gifty things


It’s been a good Sunday. We’ve been to the library and I came home with a huge pile of crafty books and magazines to browse through at my leisure. We picked up tea at our favourite tea shop, where Mr Fixit had them smiling at his gnome mask! We went to the gym and burned off a microscopic percentage of the calories we have ingested since the Christmas season’s baking started. And I spent two hours in my sewing rom making two more cuffs.

These cuffs take about ten minutes to make. However the rectangle of scrappy strip fabric that I used to make them took about an hour and a half to create! Not a quick project if you do it this way. I’m happy that I finally used the turtle button from Maui. The one with the silver button is a gift.

When we returned home from the gym, ds3 was in the process of baking more gingerbread cookies. Jeepers, we’re still working on finishing the chocolate babka. And I plan to make some berry crumble bars tomorrow because I have been craving them since the last time I made them. I am thankful for loose comfy pyjamas right now!

  1. Great scrappy projects, I really like the scrappy trees and the journal will be a welcome gift. Apologies if this comment has come through more than once, but it keeps rejecting my password, even though I’m signed in.

  2. Ideas Nicola , I would not thought of. Wristbands good under a watch ! Did they have another purpose ? as jewellery. My first experience seeing them.

    Hope the lady was thrilled with her special, handmade journal .
    Those sweets mentioned – too good . Hope we can get face-to-face meeting !

    Happy Holidays. Thinking of you.

  3. The cuffs are fabric jewellery. I wore mine to work today. It’s really comfortable and a couple of people commented. I have started giving my co-workers their little gifts as I see them on shift. xx
