Handmade Gifts.




When it was wet at the weekend I had time to cut out the parts for a purple bag for a gift. I have worked on it every night since to get it done and am pleased with the colours . It is gift for someone who wears lots of purple so I hope she likes it....you never know with younger folk though.
The table mats are being my hand work at the moment. Then I will quilt them with a large star pattern.
It is fine again now with low cloud and working in the Kiwifruit is a bit like working in a sauna today. The little fruit are growing rapidly so I am on my first round of fruit thinning; taken off the mis-shapen or too small.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one addicted to the bucket bags! Love the purple one.

Your sauna-like setting sounds wonderful to me this morning LOL! We are in the throes of an ice storm here in Missouri!!!
