Christmas wrapping

Tomorrow is the Gumnuts Kris Kringle Lunch!!!! The "Gumnuts" is my quilt group! Also known as the Gummies or the Nutters!  In a lot of ways it is the highlight of the year.  Everyone is allocated one person to give a gift to.  Some of us make a gift, some of us buy one but we all put a lot of thought into whatever it is.

My recipient this year absolutely loves Kaffe Fassett fabrics so, of course, I had to go and buy some just to sew for her.  I posted a photo of the end result in an earlier blog but as I don't know how to make a link for you to click on you just have to put up with another photo
 I have added this plate that I found to the parcel -
 This should allow you to read the words
 Here is the apron folded with the potholders hidden inside
 and the final product...
I appliqued "ho ho ho" on a tea towel in Kaffe fabrics (sorry meant to take a photo before wrapping but I forget!) and then used another piece of Kaffe fabric as the ribbon to hold it all together.  have to say I can't wait to give it to her tomorrow!!!  Will try and have my camera ready!
Bed time now - goodnight!
