There was a fair amount of secret crafting and gift giving for birthdays & an unbirthday in February . . . in chronological order . . .
These two bags, which I made and showed you in January, went to their new homes. The one on the left to our neighbour, Brigitte, who celebrated her 70th birthday on 10th February. And the one on the right was sent as an unbirthday gift to Karine.
For my good friend, Avis, who is an Aquarian, like myself . . . I made a needlebook and a matching scissor fob, stitching a design by Elizabeth Almond. My little stitched gifts were sent with the pair of Eiffel Tower scissors and a vintage wooden bobbin (thank you to the husband for sanding & staining).
And last, but by no means least, . . . my sister is also a February baby, although she’s a Pisces. To her, I sent 2 jars of locally produced honey plus
One of the tote bags I made in January AND
a biscornu & matching scissor fob, with pretty pair of scissors & wooden bobbin (again, thank you to the husband for sanding & staining lol).
This blackwork design is my own (can be found on my “free chupin’s xstitch” page) although I did alter it somewhat when stitching these pieces.
While I did buy in the scissors, to gift, and also bought in some plain wooden bobbins, all the stitching/sewing was done using supplies from my stash.
