Happy New Year!

2 Jan

Wow, there’s been so much reflection going on in sewing blogger land. I haven’t quite caught up yet. But, I didn’t want that to stop me from wishing you all a very happy 2013! So, Happy New Year!!

I went back to work today (shock to the system), but here’s a quick update of what I’ve been up to during the last week back with the fam. Oh and my handmade Christmas crafting :)

Me made gifts for girls

Tote bags from Pip Lincoln’s Sew La Tea Do book.

Owls with a yoyo embellishment…

And butterflies with pretty buttons

And another one that I was too dopey to remember to take a photo of before wrapping – doh! I almost unwrapped, but I just didn’t have time.

Sewing gifts for lucky duck me

Fun new books…

And thread holders that go from wood look plastic…

to blue! With the help of some spray paint :)

What else has been happening?

Food, wine, friends and family – but of course.

A little bit of quilting (my holiday portable project)

No sewing I’m afraid, but I’ll get there. I did catch up with the Frabjous Couture PMPS sew/draft along though!

What have you been up to?

Hope you are all raring to get in to 2013! I can’t wait to see where it takes us :)

P.S: The lovely Ooobop nominated me for the very inspiring blog award! You’re too kind. I haven’t forgotten and will pass on the love soon :)

    You’ve gotta love puppy love. But I’m really liking that birch spool holder… does it come apart? Or is it stuck in that stadium seating style arrangement? Happy New Year!

      Stuck stadium style all the way. The legs fold in, and the pins need to be stuck in the holes by you, but that’s the extent of it. I like it :)
