I've got very little close family, just a nephew living in Belgium and a very elderly aunt living here in Caistor. However, I am well blessed with cousins and I am blessed with kind, generous wonderful cousins.
I made this sack today for one of my cousins and his wife, children and grandchildren. During the past year I have been making and buying all sorts of little bits and pieces, many of which I have wrapped already. This sack is for everybody to open, not on Christmas Day, but on a day when the whole family is present and it can be shared.
The green corduroy and the gingham fabric are from my stash and the trim is the border from a cheap throw which I bought to use as a thin wadding when quilting. I'm hoping that when it is full it will look very exciting!
