Monkeys for Christmas

I am in the middle of making some Christmas presents, which means I can't show them as the people who are to receive them visit this blog. You will have to wait until after Christmas to have a peek.
In fact I can prepare my posts whenever and plan for them to be published when I want, so it could be on the 25th December for exemple, when I will be eating all that lovely food, and very busy visiting friends and family.

Still I will show you my production from this afternoon, but Karine will have to keep it a secret to her little girl. I am thinking she is too young to visit blogs by herself.

On Tuesday I went with my friend Katherine to Bath, to see the Christmas market. We had a really nice day, but a bit cold as we were outside most of the time. And the people in their little Christmas sheds were not even allowed to have any heating, for health and safety issues.

I also visited the patchwork shop Country Threads, in Pierrepont Place, as I always do when I come to Bath. And of course I bought a bit of fabric, very reasonable I was, and that's the origin of the fat quarter used here, with the monkeys.

The drawstring bag measures 12 x 9 1/2" (30cm x 24cm) and is lined with some white cotton. And the zippered pouch is 7 1/2 x 6" (19 x 15 cm).

I do love this time of preparation for Christmas, thinking of the people we love and appreciate.
