It has been a really tough day here for me, and instead of wallowing in the ' why me, Lord ? " , I decided to just do something for someone else, no matter that it isn't anything big, or awesome for the reciever.. Just a small envelope of little pieces of fabric as I have been cutting 3 1/2 inch squares, and the ends of what scraps I am cutting are what goes into this envelope .. For someone who really likes to do scrappy string quilts, person "6 " who sends me a PM with address/name * (because I have 5 grandkids , and one more due on Oct. 11th ) , will get this envelope..

:) That would be a very nice gift. I have just put together all my christmas scrap bits to make coasters. they came up ok, but i still have plenty of the combined scrap piece so might turn the rest of it into Christmas Bon Bons, i should get at least 6 made. X fingers, they will match the placemats. Hope the rest of your day/night/week is a better one for you. :)

Gday, they are the Christmas cracker that you have on the christmas dining table. They are a pull apart, with a novelty toy, party hat and a saying (whether it be a joke, riddle, or confusious say) inside it. They are fun to have and easy to make. have made them out of xmas wrapping paper and toilet roll holder. A lovely lady from the QB advised me that she has made them out of fabric, if you search for BonBons, you should be able to find her instructions of making them. They are a fun thing to have at the table. :)

That's the nicest thing to do. Surely you will have better days ahead as a reward for being so kind.
