It’s that time when everything starts going back to normal… our decorations came down yesterday and suddenly there is space again. Looking back over the period it has been a good Christmas!
I may not have done everything I wanted to but part of my determination to be better organised I’ve written a list for next year and will be ticking something off every month or so… starting with finishing hand quilting and binding this tablecloth that I did finished piecing enough to use!
I’ve been lucky enough to be spoiled with gifts that is so me! Just look at all this…books and handmade goodies including that gorgeous “All I want for Christmas is Books” by the talented Jen over at Miss Bohemia. My friend Gill even surprised with a mini present quilt that promptly went on the lil bookcase to shine 🙂
I did manage to make a few gifts, FOUR quilts (more on that soon), some stitchy pies and this cute Christmas penguin cross stitch.
For me though.. family makes the day extra special. This card is from my five year old nephew and I thought it looks like a villain from Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles (he is obsessed the way boys can be…) but nope it’s a mummy santa. And if you get the reference on the gift tag gold star to you my geeky friend 🙂
I hope everyone has had a lovely break- today been a bit of a set back with car problems. Needed a jumpstart, a new battery and two new tyres it’s a good job I also have this week off week! Especially since I can play with my new overlocker…… If anyone has any tips or simple projects I would appreciate it!
