Christmas Gifts


When Emma was up last week she went through the fabric stash and has decided to make a set of place mats and napkins for some family members for Christmas.
She has chosen some pale yellow with some floral that tones nicely....
but it needed a little....oomph.


Her solution was to handiwork here and there, accenting and highlighting some features and colours, and it really made a difference. A little less washed out looking.
We passed a beautiful afternoon companionably working together.
Hopefully she will be up next weekend and will finish sewing all the pieces together.
