Oh my goodness it's Wednesday already and half way through the week nearly. Where has the last two days gone.  For us up here in Scotland the school holidays begin at the end of next week.  That means I have to work from 7.30 - until what ever time usually 6.30/6.45 Monday to Friday.  I have a few hours to myself each day when they are at school, so the long working week will start 12 o'clock next Friday lunch time.     So for all of you who look after either your own children or your grandchildren and live in Scotland I know how it feels to think they are off for 8 weeks.   Those who live in England or else where you still have a few more weeks before it happens.

Today I am showing you the little Hessian Bags that we sell and I use to make gifts.  I have one for a baby girl, this makes a reasonable price gift.  But it has endless uses.  The other one is a ladies one, these sell really well. The dangle and the felt broach are made by, Patricia (Summerhouse crafts). Again you could just leave it plain or add your own embellishments.

Thank you again for all your lovely comments I read them all and do appreciate them all.

I do hope that I have given you ideas for those gifts we all have to make at some point.  I love to take basic products and items and turn them into some special.

That's it for today, enjoy it what ever your are doing.
