Christmas was great but spoiled slightly by the fact that my mum has been in hospital for the last 9 days and only came home today. It was also her birthday on Christmas day so she had a pretty horrible time stuck in hospital. We are hoping to do another Christmas lunch early in the New Year so she can join in!
On a more positive note I received some fabulous things (helped I am sure by the list of sewing related gifts I blogged about just before Christmas!)
From Izzy and Sam I received this gorgeous cotton reel holder
Jon bought me the www.sewscrumptious.co.uk domain name and hosting as well as a build a website package so this is one of my projects for next year!
Possibly my favourite gift ever - a portable bobbin winder. Seriously. You have no idea how much I love this thing.
Some fabulous vintage spools for my ribbons
A lovely book
Gorgeous fabrics from Fabric Rehab
A fab book about selling craft online
A gorgeous ribbon holder
The cutest Cath Kidston 'Owl' pyjamas. For some reason I can't find a decent photo online and mine are in the wash but they are soo cute!
Tickets for The Waterboys! You can read about my love of The Waterboys here
and lots of other bits and pieces. I was a very lucky girl!
Sam loved his 'Grandad' bear made by the very talented Abby of Bubs Bears and now insists on sleeping with him every night.
I tried my hand at freehand machine embroidery and made these aprons as Christmas presents. What do you think? Poppy Treffrey eat your heart out??
OMG I have had a proper look at Pinterest tonight. I am so addicted already. This is going to be dangerous.
