I was last minute as usual making her cards, I finished the one from Caleb and Phoebe in the early hours of this morning..... Inspired by my cousin Vicky's Blog, I blew the dust off my sewing machine and got a bit carried away sewing everything! I made a matching bag for Lydia's present and sewed it too. I do love the way the card turned out and I think I'll be using stitching on a few more projects.
It's funny how times have changed, for my 13th birthday I got my sewing machine :) but in those days we did 'Needlework' at school. I think it's sad that those skills are not taught now......I'm beginning to feel ancient!! lol.

The card from Caleb and Phoebe - image is a Unity stamp which I paper pieced.
I also made this little bag to hold her present
This is what she asked for - lots of sparkle!
Thanks for visiting!
