People I love

Thursday, 3 December 2015's a bit quiet round here....

(Edit: I am also crocheting a jumper)
Get's like that this time of year, too busy making stuff to chat :D
So what have I been up to?

Thrilled to say I won the local shop art comp with this mixed media piece...

got £60 in vouchers just in time for Black Friday 20% sale lol.

Bought another Debi Shore sewing project book, and made these sweet little 
Yuletide Gnomes :D

Used my vouchers to buy more fabric...
 Made a mini craft caddy for my niece's Christmas gift pile...
*the pins have now been replaced with buttons lol*

 and bought MORE fabric to make a snuggle blanket for her baby sister...
it will be backed with fleece for extra cuddliness :D

 Also, I have made my own seasonal cake...
more fruit than cake lol, and all soaked in crab apple brandy(and fed with a little whiskey and sherry)
Don't worry though, we follow a very strict "No alcohol before driving rule", so will be eaten with care :D (and creamy cheshire cheese)

Hope everyone of you is having fun with whatever projects you are busy with :D
Enjoy XXX

  2. Congrats on winning the competition, Gina! I can't imagine a better prize than vouchers for fabric! I finished off my fruitcakes a couple of weeks ago and made mincemeat, too. I can hardly wait to tuck into both of them. :)

  3. Wish I was doing fun projects, I'm just taking a break from reading an indepth post audit report and juggling some budget spreadsheets!

  4. Gina, you always make me smile! Congrats on winning! You deserve it! Everything is beautiful! Love all your creations!

  5. Congrats again on your winning, Gina love. I'm all proud of you and stuff!

    You've been making so many beauties... and THAT cake! ♥♥♥

  6. Congratulations on your win, you deserve it! Such lovely things!
