A Bit More Christmas Stitching & A Trip.......

The new Anni Downs Book is so lovely. This little Birdcage Key Chain is so sweet.

I decided to do my own spin on them and used some Theodora Cleave buttons instead of appliquing the bird. I have made 4 of these to put into my christmas gift stash. They are just so lovely. The little Birdcage slips over the keys to hide them when not in use but slips up when you want to use them. So cute !!

I have also made some more Journal Covers - This time using some of my Bliss Jelly Roll - That makes 6 journals for the month !!


Our family has had a few tough times over the last few months so we leave today on a little trip to Victoria for a little bit of R & R. Sam will be holding the fort for us here. We leave tonight on the ferry to go to the mainland. Stay tuned as I have packed the camera.
