Christmas Presents

I decided to make a start on my Christmas crafting. This are Gratitude Wraps from SouleMama. I am making them for my two, 10 year old nieces and will put in smiggle pens, notebooks and a book of stamps too. I have decided to make 4, so I can pop a couple into the present cupboard as well. They are sewing up super quick. Just need to get some batting and bias binding so I can complete them. I feel a trip to Spotlight coming on.... Hope you've had a productive Sunday too!

Off now to make Sweet and sour chicken for dinner!


  1. Good for you to be organising Christmas presents. I think handmade presents are the best...I'm sure your nieces will be thrilled!

  2. Love the Soule Mama gratitude wrap idea, Lovely gift idea too. Yours are looking sweet, sure neices will love.

  3. Lucky Nieces! Wanna adopt me too?? LoL
    I bet they will use them for many years to come

  4. I made the cake today! Isn't it great that when we need a recipe we can find it on someones blog!! I had to prepare supper for a small Weight Watchers (small in number not in their sizes!!!LOL)group so I made scones and the cake. Doubled the mixture so that I would have a spare one for the freezer and also put some mixture in a muffin tin so that I could taste it too. Very moist and yummy! Thanks so much.

  5. MmmMmmMmM, sounds delicious! I love a cake full of vegetables. It means I can have an extra slice, just to meet my daily veggie requirements of course!
