I'm always excited when I manage more than one post a day (it's only happened 2 or 3 times). So there you go. Let it be said. I'm excited. Officially. But now I'll get on with it because this post is mainly about pretty pictures. Specifically red and aqua ones. Because when it comes to Christmas, red and aqua is the new black.
That one is some Wink Designs Christmas packaging. (Actually, not entirely Wink Designs because I included a stamped gift tag made by Belinda.)
That one is my contribution to the blogmeet dinner lucky dip as outlined in my earlier post today. (Did I mention this is my 2nd post of the day, oh yes I did! Woo hoo!) Anyway, it's the Linen Basket pattern from the Zakka Sewing book. (I love this book and will write more about it at a later date as I want to do several of the projects. I got mine from "The Book Depository" but I can't get a link going there at the moment so I've linked to the Japan Craft Journal review). I added a handmade brooch of my own design.
That is Cee Cee hand stamping some gift tags for presents for her little mates.
That one is some red and blue Mary Englebreight fabric purchased from here. The little gift tags were made up by me from a downloadable template by etsy seller Little Brown Pen. I love her shop, it's just brilliant!
And that one (finally) is a cuter than cute free embroidery pattern by the undisputed Queen of Red & Aqua, Jenny of Allsorts fame. I also bought the little Dutch girl pattern from her etsy shop which I'm planning to do over the summer break. (I hope to get the elvies done before Xmas....).
Posting twice a day is exhausting. I'll go and have a lie down now.
