No husbands, let's stitch!

DH was away this weekend so my Mum came down for a visit. Mum loves to stitch as much as I do so we've had a very productive weekend. Here's what we got upto....
This is Mum's little dilly bag.....
Here's my xmas baubles finished at last.....
Mum made some grab bags from the pattern I posted about previously.....
...aren't they gorgeous!

Here's a Rosalie Quinlan doll "Sarah" that I made....

and Mum made some gorgeous sewing accessories that she'll sell in her local craft shop.....
Pity the weekend is over, we were on such a roll!!

I love everything you made. I haven't had a good sewing session for a few days, I think I'm getting withdrawel symptoms! After seeing those little bags on your last post I decided to make some for my cousin's girls for christmas. Maria x
