Sorry it has taken me so long to post about my Christmas day present from Emma, but as I spent Christmas away in a cottage in the Forrest of Dean, I’m only just catching up after getting back on Wednesday. Emma gave me the most beautiful handmade cushion cover, with a intricate hand drawn pattern on the front
It is going to take pride of place in my sewing room Thanks to Emma for all her hard work in making and putting together my advent parcels. I have enjoyed the swap so much and have already signed up for 2 smaller swaps through popular crafts
I thought I would share with you some of my favourite presents that I got for Christmas. I got some fantastic books, which I have already read from cover to cover!
Nic gave me the Alice in Wonderland book. It has some fab projects in it and I am going to use it as inspiration for my vintage themed 30th birthday party next year!
I also got the most beautiful purse and an owl sewing kit from my hubby
The purse is made from a pattern fabric and has bits of tape measure ribbon and buttons on it, I absolutely love it!
If all these things weren’t nice enough I also treated myself to a vintage tea set from J’adore Vintage
I can’t believe where 2011 has gone! I have had the most fantastic year, starting off with getting married in May, expanding my sewing skills and also starting some ventures with Maeri with The Make and Do Studio. I have also had so much fun going along to the clandestine cake club and have made a fantastic friend in Nic. Most all after starting my blog in August I have met some fantastic people and want to thank you all for sticking with me and giving me encouraging comments. If 2012 is as good as 2011 then I will be a very lucky lady! I am going to post about my new years resolutions and plans for 2012 over the weekend, have any of you made resolutions for the new year? Check out Nics 2011 achievements, I might do 30 things I want to achieve next year
