An award and some stitching.

Wow I was doubly blessed yesterday as Not only did I win an Emily Dickinson bag from Tanya, I received a kreativ blogger award too from Sally. I never really think of myself as being particularly creative so this means a lot.
Now I need to pick my 5 nominees with the following rules:)
1. The winner may put the logo on her blog.
2. Put a link to the person you got the award from.
3. Nominate 5 blogs.
4. Put links to the blogs.
5. Leave a message for your nominees.

I nominate the following which is very hard to do as all your blogs are wonderfully inspiring:

Staci Snippets and Stash
Andrea The Craft Room
Stephanie In Stitches
Su Contemplating my Needle and Thread

And finally some stitching to show:
These are what I made for Lily's teachers as end of year gifts. It is the freebie from Les Grilles de Maryse Naturally I filled them with lavender. Each is stitched on different bits of fabric I found in my stash and I sttiched the whole design and just stitched them up one of the sides. The teachers liked them anyway. I think they look quite sweet.

A well deserved award. the sachets are lovely. I know if I was still teaching I'd have been delighted with that gift.

They do grow up fast my (first) baby is 20 on Friday and it still seems like only yesterday I was in hospital looking at her for the first time.
