Gifts galore


As many of you will know it is Father's Day on Sunday! I down yesterday and thought about what I should make my dad as a gift. I have bought his other presents (a teapot and two teacups with a bunting decoration and a Queens Jubilee commemorative PG tips tin with the monkey on it- we love the little monkey and my dad loves tea :0). I thought of a couple of different things but then I saw the custard cream keyring kit on top of my cupboard, I promised I would make my dad one when I got the kit from my nan for Christmas but hadn't yet got  round to it yet.

I thought what better time to make one for him than now, it even fits with the tea time theme of my other gifts :P Here is how it came out:

I hope he likes it :-) I had to knead the clay A LOT it was very hard, my fingers kinda hurt now!

But, that didn't stop me doing a bit more work on the bag I am making for my Nan for her 70th. I finished the embroidered design a while ago and today I stitched down the straps, now all I have to do is stitch the finished straps to the bag. I have until Saturday evening. I will get back to stitching tomorrow when my fingers are OK again because I have to hand sews the straps rather than machine sew as our machine can't sew through that many layers!

Hehehe, I tried to make the flower look super happy :D I hope it make my nan smile!

I hope you are all having a brilliant week!

See you all soon,
