This year I expected things to be different but Dad went to church whilst I made the fire up so that Mum could come down. Dad and I had the traditional lunch and the three of us exchanged our Christmas presents. These are just a few from my parents and Wendy& Nigel - many thanks X. I was also lucky enough to be given some felting mats, make up and chocolate from Jean whilst my Tuesday night sewing class friends gave me some decorations, a candle and a jar of beads. Mmmm- me thinks there's a sewing theme here. Sewingbuddy - I hope that you noticed the Christmas fabric - Mum thought that if I couldn't buy any then she would wrap my present up in the fabric.
Talking about Mum, I wonder if you recall me struggling with her present? So much did I struggle that I threatened to throw my expensive machine out of the window. Anyway it turned out to be this hand embroidered handbag made from hand dyed felt. She was pleased with the end result so it was worth the pain!
This afternoon I " played" with a present that I have given myself - a reading mouse for the lounge. This, if you recall, was a kit that I bought in Harrogate to make up on Christmas Day.
Talking about presents I can now reveal the gift that I made for Wendy -it was a wall hanging that is oh so true for every sewer out there!
As for the "mystery" presents that have so haunted this blog in recent weeks - well, they're still to be given - Millie is keeping stum!
