I’m not one for crafty themed resolutions, if I want to make/learn something I just do it regardless of whether it’s the start of a new year or not.The exception to this will be Stash Diet 2014 – I’m working on a meal plan for this diet at the moment so more to come in a separate post! I also thought that a review of productivity would be better in March to celebrate 1 year of blogging. So in a twist to these currently popular post themes, I’m going to show off my Christmas presents!
It turns out that while I was busy creating presents for my loved ones (sewing gifts and knitting gifts) they were seeking out some amazing presents for me. A fantastic camera which I was so pleased to receive – no more dead pixel line in my photographs (can you suffer a few more posts that were photographed before Christmas?).
From now on my handmade gifts will be obvious without people asking due to these most excellent labels (sneak peak at the fabric for a January make too).
For future make inspiration and guidance I received Gertie’s Book and Knitting by Design (three projects worth of yarn have already been ordered!).
A little sewing box with pin cushion lid.
The cutest sewing machine charm for my charm bracelet (now groaning through the generosity of a life-time of charm gifts from family). However, this is the first sewing themed charm so I’m excited to add it to the plethora of other me-related charms.
And the heavy hinting I did while watching the Christmas special of Great British Sewing Bee paid off with these chalk markers.
Totally spoilt huh? Right back to those self-imposed rules for Stash Diet 2014!
