secret santa gift

i have 2 sectret santa gifts to do this year one for work and one for play group.

the one for work is for an eccentric yet classy 20 year old who has just finished his 1st year of uni i was a tad stumped for a while until i met a friend in the local op shop after she had spent some time on (please do not go to that site if you don't have time , it is very addictive)

My friend was buying records to make bowls out of.

Bingo the perfect present.

so i made the bowl out of a Burt Bacharach album and added a few bits and pieces of yum.

the second for a lovely lady at play group she is getting a teacup pin cushion and a little tote bag.

pin cushion is done just need to make the bag so best go start as the party is tomorrow
