I recently whipped up this for a now-not-Secret Santa gift for our final Modern Monday quilt group gathering. It's the second time I have used Noodlehead's tutorial. It's quite straightforward and the pouch turns out quite tidy ... and I am no zip expert.
No-longer-Secret Santa brought me this cute little pin cushion. I guessed it was made by Shelly because she has a thing for selvedges.
I think 'Santa' is starting to replace 'Father Christmas' in New Zealand. Ugh. I am trying to bring back 'pictures' in place of 'movies'. As kids we always said pictures. And I hate the word cookies in place of biscuits. I learn a lot of slang from the kids at school. "H n F, Miss. H n F." Hard and fast. Meaning, I will be back quickly if you let me go for a drink. 'Doorstepped' is another word I learnt at school maybe last year. It's when someone steals your shoes from your doorstep. Truly.
