Little Christmas Gifts

Hi folks yesterday I was inspired by my friend Suzie on what to do with scrap fabric, a couple of years ago I had purchased a bundle of scrap fabric. So in the afternoon I had found a website to make pocket tissue holders.

It's really easy you just need 5 1/2"x 6 1/2" printed fabric and 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" coordinating fabric to make one holder, the only thing was I had purchased tissues from Asda and they don't open on the flat size so I will have to get the Kleenex brand.

More to follow, I have some Christmas fabric to use that was from a quilting range.
I hope you are all inspired to make some home make gifts this Christmas. I have stated to stock up on cupboard ingredients to make Stollen which went well last year and I also plan to make Christmas Jam.

Some good new is I have been offered a job that I originally got turned down for, I will be working for Dunelm Mill, I will start on the 2nd Nov with the store opening on the Thursday 17th November,I believe that is when Bury switches its Christmas lights on. I shall be working 20hrs a week with some weekend work, hopefully not every weekend. Here is their website for a sneak peek of what might be in Bury St Edmunds.

Hi Eunice
Glad to hear you were inspired and what a busy bee you've been too! Love that darker floral fabric BTW. How cool would these be for 'get well' gifting? All tied up with a pretty bit of ribbon and a nice scripture tag, they'd be a great way to keep in touch with poorly church members. Fab news on the job front - Congrats! I'm so pleased for you AND think of all that lovely fabric in Dunelm too. I am soooooo glad we won't have to go trapsing to Ipswich any longer - can't wait. Will keep you in prayer that all goes well. Hugs Suezie
