Stitched gifts I received recently

I was given some stitched gifts for my birthday in January and some books about stitching for Christmas.

The stitched gifts were made by my daughter Katherine and her family.



This is a fabric tray, or basket, used for serving bread or other dry food. The underside (left) has a pocket for an insert of thin wood or heavy cardboard. The ties on the corner then form sides. It's very clever and useful.                                                                      
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
This bright and clever strawberry potholder was made by Brigid, aged 7







while                                                                                                                       5 year-old Fionn did the fabric drawing on the heat mat below.

Veronica, aged 3, contributed the drawing to the teatowel above, while Niamh, also 3, illustrated the matching apron below, both of which I believe came from Gaganis Bros in Adelaide.

My thanks to Katherine, who coordinated the effort, and did most of the machining.
