I had a great Christmas and New Year and I'm feeling full of inspiration for the New Year. After my complete failure to achieve any of last years resolutions (see here) I've decided not to bother this year. Its very liberating! I am excited about 2011 though. Not least because I received some gorgeous sewing presents and I'm pretty keen to have a go at some free hand machine embroidery this year.
Izzy also got her first sewing machine for Christmas from her Grandma.
We've already started collecting fabric and buttons and ribbons and have lots of ideas for things to make. Izzy already has her own little fabric stash including this new one...
and a lovely book full of ideas
I also got some lovely sewing goodies. Remember this gorgeous print - well its now waiting for a frame to hang in my sewing room. Its gorgeous!
I also got one of these lovely fabric boxes from Seamstar. Its lovely and full of gorgeous fabric and ribbons.
and my new sewing foot ready for some freestyle macine embroidery
I can't wait to try it out....
I also got a super dooper new camera but you can't take a photo of your new camera with your new camera but its cool and pink and I love it.
Izzy also got a Barbie Puppy Swim School for Christmas. She LOVES it. I can seriously say its the worst invention ever. Its a toy that involves large quantaties of water.
Children + Water = DISASTER!!We have had a number of water incidents already and Barbie has now been banished to the bathroom.
