So with 365 days to honour my side of the deal, I kept a 'CiF' entry on every month's To Do list that I wrote this year. I even showed you progress at the end of the summer when I added them to my Q4 FAL list; so now, with a clear(ish) conscience, I can show you the finished pressies...
Just in case you like to know the details of these things, these needle books were inspired by some that I coveted over at Krista's, and all were made with Liberty 1/2" hexies, Essex Yarn-dyed linen in Denim, lined with Alison Glass' Sun Print Text, and felt from Eternal Maker. Everything was pieced and stitched in Aurifil 50wt. There's a handy clip for scissors, or to attach to a zippy pouch, and I think they measure up at about 4" square when closed.
I added some chocolate and a small button badge to try to get me back in the good books, and the postmaster popped Christmas stamps on the UK ones, so it even looks, for all intense and purposes like they are early!
I will link back to the recipient's CiF posts, so you may get lucky and be on the receiving end of their crafty generosity some time soon.
Linking up now with Liz, even though it's not Thursday.
Right, back to the next thing on the list xxx
