some of those makes that have not been seen..

so we have made a couple of gifts for Christmas this year. but not shared the makings here... because that seems not right, until gifts have been given.. so a quick canter through the makes- or some of them anyway!

 My receptionist has taken to crochet this year, so this was a no-brainer!
 the bright handled hooks were included in the gift, not the scissors though, they and the hand sewing needles were just 'set dressing' .

I had noticed she favoured a thick handled hook, and why be boring when bright is available?

Cheery flower buttons...

and a book for a little inspiration!



a kindle cover for the other girl, Did I really not take 'open' photos when I finished? I really did not take finished photos when this was open...And, of course, I could not take photos with the kindle in situ...she has one with a camera, so allowance had to be made for that... I just hope it fits...
  
 the outside should make her smile though!

and a simple fastening.











A wee while back.. about a year  or so, we made these little boxes...

so, I though, how about one like that for my Saturday girl? 


Of course, I had done them before, so, who needs the instructions now? No, of course I do not need any instructions! Not me.... 




Favourite colours, blue and yellow...

but the flattened shape?  perhaps I should have referred to those instructions after all!

I took a view on this one, and decided, I would leave it so, It is different from the intention, but still pretty, and will still hold random stuff... so, with some bits and bats, made a gift for a teenager.

a few other bits also got made... perhaps I shall find them later...

Such lovely gifts. I'm sure they were delighted. I only managed two hand made ones this year but I must remember how much more special they are to give so that I will make more next year!

Oh how lovely to hear from you!
Yes, hand made gifts are special, probably because of the time spent in making them.
I love what you make, and is it not a shame that we cannot spend more time being creative? I have to get an inspiration before I can get started, and that can be the difficult bit!

You are a no reply blogger, did you know? so this has to go in the comments at the bottom.

Oh dear, the flat box brought a smile to my face. I'm terrible at working out how 2D items can transform into 3D shapes so I can see this happening to me too.

Lovely makes Rachel and so much more personal than a bottle of wine or a box of choccies!
