we didn't manage to make all our gifts this year but here are a couple that we did get off the ground.
a while ago when we got our tree we went to an open day at a potters collective where prairie painted some wares. we are keeping the beaker and the heart plate - the checkered one is a gift for michael's mother - painted especially for her
for michael's dad who is a keen watercolourist i made a pencil case and prairie embroidered 'grandad' on a piece of felt. it turned out quite large so it may have to house more than pencils.
something else i have just finished is the making up of a lovingly stitched stocking by my friend karen for her daughter. it is so beautifully done and so intricate that i was apprehensive to even start terrified i would make a boo boo. but i didn't and now it is on its way to her.
