    I made lots of fabric Christmas tree decorations for a Charity Fayre last weekend and they proved very popular as I priced them to suit as pocket money buys !

    This year is left to make Christmas gifts. So I need to sew ~200 organza flowers and to glue them to plastic Christmas Tree Balls. I’m not sure already if this is “little” project :DDD
