Christmas Gift Making

I have been busy getting some last minute gifts completed!

My sister decided she wanted a pyramid door stop...

Firstly, I made myself one as a prototype......

It's filled with rice and dried lavender!

And then I made a slightly larger one for Helen....

I lined this one to make it more sturdy!

Then, yesterday, I whipped up a journal cover for a friend using this tutorial...

And finally, this was 'adapted' from a printed hoop I saw in "Typo" recently!

The heart is a little wonky, naive perhaps.....

I may still add some blanket stitch around the letters and 

 running stitch around the outside edge?

This might, also, be my next giveaway....


Happy days!



  1. Love the blue pyramid and your notebook cover is beautiful.

  2. great job on all of them - lucky recipients!

  3. Love the pyramid door stop! Aren't you clever! I have one door that refuses to stay open - so weird. The journal cover is very nice and I really like that fabric!!! Your LOVE hoop is adorable - very cute idea :)

  4. The door stoppers are a great idea and yours look so delightful. Love the covered journal, too.
    Cute little hoop! All those little gifts are falling in to place!

  5. Very cool door stops!! Better than using a gumboot which I do sometimes. You're hoop is so LOVEly, hee hee , I bet you knew I'd say that.

  6. Love the door stops. You have reminded that I have two little embroidery rings that I bought as display frames. Yours looks great.

  7. Oooo I am interested. I love that hoop idea. Very cute!!

  8. Each of these projects are lovely! I may have to make a door stop like that, I use a book for my sewing room door and yours is much prettier than a book.

  9. I love your hand made gifts. The doorstop looks great and I love journal covers. The hoop will look great!

  10. I love all your handmade gifts, each one is special. Love the tape measure ribbon you used too! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
