Happy New year for 2014

I wanted to wish everybody a Happy New Year for 2014 and hope its a much better year for us all than 2013.  I also have a few finished I wasnt able to show you until after Christmas, they were a few gifts I made for my parents.
The first is a bag I made for my Mum, I enlarged the scissor fob chart for the front of the bag, stitched 2 over 2 instead of the 1 over 1 in the chart, came out just the right size.  The bag was quite easy to make, much easier than I expected, well after figuring it out, I also made a little coin purse to go with it.

This is a tractor I made for my Dad, its a Stony Creek design and really was fun to stitch even though it was a tractor, loved using all those reds.

My Mum hates sewing but every girl has to have a pretty sewing box dont they and I think she likes it.  This one is a variation of the Victoria Sampler Winter Box.

This is a little tree hanger I made for my Dad

and a little dragon fro my Mum.  Cute isnt he.

Have a very Happy New Year everybody and hopefully lots and lots of crafty things and stitching.
