Month of June

First up was June T's birthday a couple of weeks ago.  It can be really difficult deciding what to make for June, as long as it's blue-ish I think I'm safe.  Since my friends has all got a mug rug, it was June's turn to 'suffer' one from me!

Stitchery pattern by Kaaren.  Hand quilted with Perle thread.

Then Margaret W got us ladies some lovely souvenirs.

I think I want to make a zipper pouch from the oh so British fabrics!  Some pins for that lil teapot tray.

And yesterday I collected Merilyn's parcel from the PO.  Gosh was I overwhelmed.  It's suppose to be for my birthday but better late than never I say.

A whole load of goodies.  The fabrics are French General people! A vintage spool, vintage counted stitches book and a sewing machine pin.  Also an Olfa pinking blade which I know will come in handy in my sewing and the requisite chocolate :)


  1. I just love that very cute embroidered mug-rug, such pretty fabrics too!!! You did a nice job with the quilted bag too, lovely work!!!
    Have fun with your belated goodies, so glad they arrived to you safely!!!!!

  2. You always put so much thought into your lovely gifts and I suspect that June is still smiling.
    Your lovely gifts will make sure that you don't have a moment to spare, in between playing with them and your garment making. Enjoy it all.

  3. That's right, Elyte. I'm still smiling with the gifts that I'd received from Bj. Do you know me? Lol!

    Thanks, Bj. I've used the quilted bag to go shopping at Yee's. It didn't go to the maid. I'm very reluctant to use the mug rug as it's too precious to be stained. So, how?

  4. An all round fantastic selection of gifts; incoming and outgoing!

  5. that blue work mug rug is VERY cute~!
