Machine Sewing

On Wednesday my DIL came to my house so that I could help her line baskets. I lined two so that she could see how it was done then my DIL lined one and made an excellent job of it. We had a bit of time left after this so I made a Christmas hangie for her. The next day I had a rummage through my stash and found some fabric printed with various Christmas designs so, as usual, I got a bit carried away and made nine of these hangies, all with a different Christmas design on it. Three I've given away and the rest are added to my decorating. Unfortunately, all the leaning over to cut out started my 'bad back' off and I've hardly done a thing this last two days, hope it recovers soon, there's still quite a bit to do before Christmas Day!!!

I think your Christmas hanging ornament is just adorable! what a great job of stitching you do! and yes, bending over does aggravate the back! Happy Holidays! and warm hugs,

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Ann! Your Christmas hangies are precious, and I'm glad you were able to spend quality time with your DIL. Hopefully, your back has made a full recovery since you last posted... Have a happy New Year :)
