A Stitch in Time

I hate sewing. But for some reason I can't seem to break the habit. I see something in the shops and think I could make that! I also get a kick outta making things for friends and family as gifts. I'm too cheap to pay someone a fortune for something I could whip up myself. Here is a sample of some of my sewn things. Hope it gives you inspiration to make some yourself!

and one for her friend.
