Hi Cuties,


This morning before going to the Hairdressers with Mum I decided to finish off these Cosmetic Cases that I bought from A Stitch a Half a few years ago. I actually made them for a Cursillo ( a Christian 3 day weekend) that I was on, but as we had so much I decided to keep them. I thought my ladies would like them for my Christmas luncheon.

About 4 weeks ago after seeing all the ladies who used the Kam Snap machine on here I ordered one. It arrived 2 weeks ago and I was just dying to use it on something! Well when I saw these Cosmetic Cases I knew I had the project. I've made 5 of these cases and will make 3 more. Some of these will go inside the matching coloured tote bags I've made. I'll make a couple of black and white ones for Mum and me and a couple of autumn toned ones.

Thanks for looking. I now of course want to have coloured snaps as I think they would match my fabrics better! Oh! my list of wants is getting longer!

Love Chris

Thanks Jo, yes, I can't believe I've put up without them for so long. I showed Mum the unit yesterday she couldn't believe how heavy it was! Love Chris

love them. Were the Kam Snaps called that, or something else? Thanks Chris.

Yes Vicki, they are called Kam Snaps! Love Chris

vickiannette by vickiannette 25 Mar 2015

thanks Chris. I thought I'd buy some but the ones I saw were called something else. Then they said 'by the makers of Kam Snaps' so I think they must be just copies. Haven't purchased yet.

Wow! how wonderful to meet hubby at a Cursillo weekend. Over here us Anglicans have had separate weekends for years, up until the past 3 years. I was on team 4 years ago when we had the men on one side of our place and the women on the other side. Now we have combined Cursillos all the time. I did my Cursillo in 1991 (24 years ago) Love Chris

Chris, they look wonderful. What great gifts they will make. Still drying my tears after we lost the cricket to New Zealand :(
Let us hope that you win the finals.

Thanks Sarah, it's been a great series hasn't it? How about the Eden Park ground in New Zealand? Sorry about your loss. New Zealand really deserved that win, what an amazing game. 299 off 48 overs is amazing! That last 6 was amazing. Greg Elliott offering his hand in sportmanship to your man on the ground was a fantastic gesture. Love Chris

The whole match was amazing. It could have gone either way.
