A make a month ♥ October 2012

 Here I am ..... back again
just like I promised
aren’t I a good girl??
It's a very quick visit though I’m afraid
I just wanted to show you my monthly make for October

It's a very small make
I have struggled to fit it in this month

A set of three liberty hankies ..... a Christmas gift for my auntie
and a bookmark ..... probably for me :o)

I pinched the idea from here
such a fab site for ideas and tutorials
The hankies have a hand rolled hem
which I have never attempted before
it was fiddly at first but it got easier
 it was a nice thing to do in the evenings
when I wasn’t stitching advent calendar binding
I have stitched a LOT of binding.

Righty Ho ..... I must be getting back to my sewing room now
it's not terribly calm in there
in fact, it looks as if a giant has come along, picked my room up
given it a jolly good shake and then put it back down again
M.E.S.S.Y does not cover it

This is the tidy corner!

I will be back next week sometime with a little celebration giveaway
See you then

BIG love

P.S  There seems to be some gremlins around .....
my camera has gone weired
so has blogger
and I seem to have got out of bed on the wrong side

  12. Beautiful, I would use one to gently dab my face so everyone could see how pretty it is, lovely present. x

  13. Handmade Liberty hankies, what a luxurious and beautiful pressie!

  14. You used the lovely Liberty fabrics for hankies and made them with a hand rolled hem. These must be really gorgeous presents. You know, I imagine myself making hand rolled hems with my rough gardening hands. I'm shaking already when I think of it.

  15. Gorgeous hankies - lucky auntie! Best wishes, Pj x

  16. They're beautiful hankies Jooles, what a lovely gift to give. I actually love hand rolling hems! I could really enjoy making these. Thank you for the idea :D

  17. The Liberty hankies are so pretty. I have never come across a hand rolled hem, I need to look into that, but what a sweet and thoughtful present. I really love the bookmark too. x

  18. The liberty fabrics are so pretty, what a lovely idea.

    Really like the look of what's on your machine at the moment, I do love the red and White against those linen-y colours, very Scandinavian...perfect for Christmas!

  19. I love the pretty liberty hankies and the sweet bookmark, Jooles! I hope all the gremlins leave you in peace now and you have a nice calm weekend!
