I hope you all had a joyful and peaceful Christmas Day followed by a relaxing Boxing Day (depending on whether you were nursing a festive hangover or hitting the rush of the sales). I spent the past two days with various family including parents, siblings and little ones, so it’s been a lovely time catching up, having a laugh and exchanging presents. This year I had Christmas cakes and several handmade items on top of the usual bought gifts to dish out, so it’s been equally nice to step out of the kitchen and pack my sewing machine away! My parents loved the cushions I made each of them so it was definitely worth the extra effort.
I wanted to show you some of the presents I received. My main gift from the other half was a new super zoom Nikon camera which I’m chuffed with. After I’ve been able to play around with it I’m hoping to have better quality photos and videos from here on in. Here’s hoping, anyway!
A really cute ‘ready to sew’ Age style cooker doorstop – I can’t wait to get making this!
Gorgeous vintage floral print boots – my new favourite footwear.
Gorgeous Molton Brown hand cream in a convenient tube for my handbag.
A blue leatherette floral print iPod case that I’m using to house my iPod Touch.
So these were some of my favourite gifts. What did you get for Christmas this year? Have you been enjoying the long holiday? I can’t believe 2013 is just around the corner!
