Thank goodness it's Friday!
Birthday celebrations since last weekend seem to have made this week a long one. I received a gift myself in the form of these beautiful Christmas fabrics. Now all I have to do is decide what to make with them! I'm torn between a cushion with a Christmas theme (obviously!) or some decorations for the tree. Anyone got any ideas? I'm not a great fan of bunting if I'm honest but I was thinking maybe little stars or trees, maybe with some sequins and bells for added glitz, to hang around the house throughout December. I will let you know what I finally decide.
This weekend (after the final instalment of George's birthday) I intend to spend some time with my new sewing machine (I lead an exciting life). It's about 50 years old, so new to me but it actually belonged to my mother-in-law. My husband found the instructions on-line so they've been downloaded and I'll soon be ready to go. I'm going to start by sewing some patches together to use to decorate a cushion but the possibilities are endless. I know there are "get to know your knitting machine" courses available these days so perhaps I should sign up to one. Something to think about...
Happy weekend everyone!
