As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

A very random post

I tend to keep an ongoing list of stuff I need to blog about on my home screen otherwise I would totally forget what I needed to tell you all. This is one of those posts where I try and show you all the odd bits.

Firstly my amazing brooch that I commissioned the fabulous Steph to make. I wear alot of blue and green but I didn't have a hand crafted brooch to wear with it. Steph has been making these wild women and when I saw her swaddling sister I knew I'd love one in blues and greens so here it is. Not the best picture, granted, but here never the less.

Next up is a  make I did yesterday for a friend, She said she'd never had a handmade gift so I RAK'd her one. This was also another start for my 101/1001 so thats good too. It's rather simular to the one Laura made me for my birthday, which she said she had the idea from me so I guess it's come full circle. Anyhoo I hope my friend likes it as she hasn't recieved yet and occasionally reads my blog, so I won't say too much more. The biscornu pattern is an old CSC one I think.

A few things to update my 101 too are another book has been read - Jake Humphrey's F1 book - The Inside Track. I had it for my birthday and read it in 3 days! I've joined Steph's 50 book challenge so that counts as number 1 too! I also did 2 Operation Christmas Child boxes, but forgot to take a pic of them before I sent them off. They were an absolute joy to do and the kids liked helping too.

I went to the German Christmas market in Birmingham last Saturday and had a wonderful day. I went with my pal Sarah and her family for her Mums birthday. We had  hot choc with baileys and cream and felt thoroughly sick after (but so worth it!) I brought a couple of Christmas decorations and bits and pieces. It was well worth braving the crowds for. I'll try and sort a couple of pictures for my next post.

Laura received the Christmas box today so I'll share my makes tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by.
