A little update

As you can see I have decided to change the theme for the blog, have had the same one for about 8 years so thought that it was time for something new, and I get to have a different header picture each time! Hope that you like it and it is easy to use.

Thanks for visiting and following, just realised that I have got 129 followers now, thanks you all so much, I feel very loved šŸ˜‰

 

Lovely presents

Hello everyone

I have been waiting a while to get some good pictures of the great things I got for Christmas this year.We had a nice sunny day yesterday so I was able to get pictures of my new craft room treats.

You may remember me saying that I had bought a sewing machine themed cotton reel holder and had the matching hook set on my wish list, well guess what my lovely children bought me for Christmas!

This was a total surprise and I was delighted, Ellie said she thought the link on my blog was a hint but it was just really for me to remember where it was from as it was quite expensive and I was going to save up for it. So thank you brilliant children šŸ™‚

I am using it at the momentĀ to hang bags from andĀ on itĀ is another one of my gifts on it, this knittingĀ bag on the left from my brother Ben and his (now wife!) Amanda.

The girls at knitting all thought that we should get t-shirts with this on as it is so true! They got this from Not On The High Street.

My lovely friend Kerry always gets my great gifts and this year she bought me this diary from my wish list. Look at all theĀ quilty joyĀ that is in here.

This rainbow quilt is brilliant and I love the look of the rail fence cushions.

She also, ‘gifted’, me some fabric that she bought some years ago at Harrogate but has never used and I was very pleased.

I would be pleased with Christmas fabric anyway but there at the bottom is the red version of theĀ gorgeous stuff I managed to get five fat quarters of last year at Harrogate.

When I brought it home I was thinking how great it would be if I had some more of the red as well and now I have!

Not much crafting to share with you this week, mouse is still a WIP but I have recently finished another of Jenny of Elefantz’s designs, this one in the variegated thread again.

I think the thickness of the thread looks really good with the flower design. The heart is cut from some batik.

Am finishing off the mouse this weekend so will be knitting the cute ballet cardigan tomorrow then need to get some tulle for a tutu so that I can make it up next week.

Hope that you have a very enjoyable weekend, it has just started snowing here so I am staying snuggled under the fleece enjoying my hygge home!

Take care and thanks for visiting.
