Later that same night I

Next, I've been going a little mad on making these cute little purses. They are small and just darling and as soon as my girl spotted the one I made as a sample, she snaffled it and hasn't let me have it back. So I've been making a stack of them for Christmas presents. Some of them will hold vouchers, or a nail kit or trinkets and some will be part of a set (I enlarged the pattern for a bigger one).
Here's the stack I have made ready to hand stitch up into their proper shape. They come from this tutorial here. Thanks Rashida!! You've sorted so many of my Christmas gifts! Even my boy has picked out fabrics for me to make one for his 'treasures'.
I've also been working on the vege garden (sorry - webcam won't stretch that far) and this morning planted some tomato and basil seedlings and some carrot seeds. It's been dry for the last 3 weeks so I've been spending a bit of time watering too.
So that's it for now. As soon as I get my camera back I'll give you a more thorough round up of the Wild Food party and show you my daughter's funky new haircut!
