# 327 A handmade birthday gift

This year my mum's birthday gift was, in part, dictated by the changes made to our local Post Office.

These changes mean that the Post Office is now open from 6am to 11pm as opposed to the previous 9 to 5 opening time with 1 hour lunch break and also that you can no longer send packets abroad over a certain size. So, after much thinking I settled for this.

A Sunbonnet Sue appliqué on felt and mounted on an embroidery hoop. Mum seems to be pleased with it and I have one or 2 more crafty projects on the go envolving embroidery hoops, felt and fabric.

If you'd like to see a few more of my craft projects please feel free to visit my other blog here.
