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.

Christmas makes and gifts

Hi everyone,
Happy new year to you all and hope 2014 is full of rich blessings for you all. 

 My crafty bug went on winter vacation in November and December so I only made a few bits. I made 2 reindeer and 5 of these little hexagon wreaths. I sent one each to Laura and Steph along with a reindeer, had one for my tree and my mum had 2. They were great for using up tiny scraps of Christmas fabric I had as they were only 1 inch hexagons. They're backed with coordinating sparkly felt and each finished with a charm and bow. I also made the brooch in the pic for Laura. 

Laura sent me this fabulous parcel of bits all wrapped separately so I had 7 presents to unwrap

I love the little button tree and the wooden ornament I'm guessing is from the Birmingham German market which I know Laura visited as we have 3 similar ones too from our visit in 2012! Laura also sent craft kits for my 2 kids too. 

Steph sent me these lovely gifts. Some she had made and others get very talented knitting Mum had made. 

Steph made mini Peppa and George for Lottie and her mum made flopsy bunny. Steph also sent Thomas horrible histories annual and a selection box. 

My hubby loves oriental dragons and a while back I found a pattern on etsy after seeing a pin about on Pinterest. I brought the pattern and Steph kindly crocheted it for him. 

Steph also sent me this gorgeous brooch

She also made Andrew a RAK too of the lonely mountain from The Hobbit.
I thought I'd share this gorgeous scarf I had too from my bestie - green with giraffes. Perfect for me!

I've signed up for wipocalypse and theme-a-licious this year so I'll be back to share my projects for that. Hopefully I can do a quick review of the year too. 

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend (well it's almost Friday)!
