Who's been a Good Girl?

Well, I must have been a little as Santa was very good to me!  It really was a 'sewing' themed Christmas for me this year as far as gifts were concerned, with some knitting thrown in as well.

Amongst the goodies received, I had a box of fabric (I placed the order and hubby picked up the bill!  Some of this fabric will be debuting in the 2013 SWAP on Stitchers Guild.  More details to follow!) and Gertie's book:

Which is full of fabulous 'top tips' not to mention the lovely patterns!  I have a feeling that I will be referring to this book quite a lot in the future!

I also took part in a Secret Santa with Krafty Kat and received these lovely gifts:

 

The yarn is quite stunning,  As a sock knitter, these will make a lovely, soft cushy pair of socks . . . . for me!  The parcel included some pretty shell buttons and was wrapped up in the delicate blue lace that will become attached to the lining of a skirt sometime in the future!

Thank-you 'swappee', I was truly spoilt!

How about you - were you good?!

  1. Santa was better to me than I deserved. I recieved a new tv and dvd player for the sewing room. It is a small set, so it doesn't take up much room, so it is perfect on my sewing table.

  2. I got a pair of tall black boots and some chocolates. All our money went to the kids' gifts this year- and to our teeth. We'll all have pretty, healthy smiles!
    I have Gertie's book. I need to start making up the patterns already. Can't wait to see what fabric you got!
