Snip-snip-glue bosh! Job done.
Then, inspired both by my mini success and by my friend -Angela, who is crafting wonderful goodies for her daughter while she gets ready for uni, I did this ...
I am the first to admit I am not very adept with hand sewing but managed to do a wobbly outline of the Outer Hebrides, dated it 2016 and glued a small star indicating the spot (Balranald Bay) where the driftwood was found.
I do have a plan for something else he can take with him while he is in halls of residence. Just need to get started!
In the meantime, I must get baking - I've got visitors tomorrow - it promises to be a bloggy-filled afternoon as Susan from Granny Smith's Quilting, Jak from Jak's Tales , hopefully Lovely Lady from Threads through my Life and I are getting together and will no doubt there will be an awful lot of nattering and nibbling :)
