Christmas day!

 I have a real mix of photo's to show you for my christmas day!First of all Hamish's first christmas that he really understands and looking at this photo he appear's a little overwhelmed.
 Alice un-wrapping one of her present's from santa in between coughing!Bless her she has a chest infection.
 Hamish proudly showing the cuddly toy pig he got from santa.
 And this is what mummy got from the BQL secret santa swap some lovely quilty goodies to enjoy!
 And this was my secret santa swap gift that I made for my swap partner,a lovely quilted cosmetic's bag.
 With satin ribbon and glass bead's on the zip closure.
 I tried to get a picture of the spotty lining to show you but it didn't come out to well,the photo that is.

And then lastly a lavender heart pouch to go inside the bag made with home grown lavender that we cut and dried at the end of the summer.I hope you've all had a lovely christmas day xx

A little sewing!

Gosh!The weather has been very cold,but today hasn't been as cold or I'm getting used to it.Here's what I've been up to,I finished making this tractor cushion today for my friend's little boy for christmas,he is tractor crazy!I'm really pleased with how it's turned out so I thought I'd share it with you!
 A snap shot of our lovely tree.It's been quite a busy day today firstly I finished that cushion,then I went dog walking and then this evening I went with Hamish and our neighbour up to see her pony.Hamish absolutely loved it he had a little ride up and down,and helped brush her and feed her.Earlier today my mum and dad called round with our christmas present an oven ready locally reared goose for christmas day.We're all set for christmas now just a few last minute bits to get tomorrow.I hope your all ready?I'm sooo excited now it's getting nearer,I won't be able to sleep!!

A lovely surprise!

 What a lovely surprise!This beautiful table runner came in th post last week all the way from NZ among other things was a tasty bar of chocolate,some little strawberry patchwork gift bags for the kids and some patchwork magazines.What more could a girl want for christmas!I just wanted to say a very big thank you to Michelle over at Michelle's patch for her beautiful gift's and to show that I am making very good use of that gorgeous table runner I just love and adore the colours,and my neighbour admired it too!
 Gosh!The weather has been really bitterly cold here for the last week and here are some fab cobweb's on the kid's wendy house that I just wanted to share with you.
Yesterday was very murky and misty only brightened by the brilliant white coating on all the tree's.I'm almost set for christmas now just one or two little presents to finish off.I shall very shortly be posting as promised my Cath Kidston scrap bag giveaway!

While it's snowing I'm sewing!

 Yesterday we decided to have tomatoe soup for lunch to warm ourselves up with all this snow we've been having!
 And whilst it's been snowing I've been busy sewing and a little crochet.I decided given that it's been really cold and I noticed a draught under the front door more than usual.I thought I'd make a draft excluder for the front door in a navy blue felted/woollen style fabric and then I thought thats a bit plain and boring I'll cheer it up a little with a few crochet flowers and button's and tah dah!Here it is.
And then out of a few of those yummy Cath Kidston scrap's I made myself this cute little make-up bag as mine is looking a little old and tired.
