CQI Christmas Cracker Swap


Here are three Christmas crackers I've made for the CQI swap.

I've wrapped with a cqed block used lots of Japanese kimono fabrics. There are stuff for embellishment I chose inside.

When I drove my mother-in-law and sister-in-law to Chusonji Temple in Hiraizumi recently, I bought a few charms. I used them for these crackers. They are very modern and pretty.

It's a secret until Christmas who I send each and what is included in each cracker.

Here are the naked blocks I made.

You are such an inspiration to me.
Admire your work very much. It has a gentle beauty to it which I love( they say a person's soul comes through in their work and I believe this to be true)
