Handmade Monday is here again.....
and only 20 days until Santa struggles to get his girth down the chimney.
Our tree is up mainly because DH and I are big kids and when it comes to the festive season we love all things Christmas and here is a picture of Shiloh at age 6 months, it will be his first Christmas and yes the tree is still standing and no flying baubles YET!!!
No crafting from me as taking a break from making to recharge my batteries for my new direction in 2012 but that has not stopped me getting 2 new machines for my old one. Already have the new normal sewing machine and the embroidery one should turn up on Monday, now that is when the fun begins playing getting to know the machine and it's quirks and you never know may have made something by next week.
New Year, new me (hopefully a thinner one) and new ideas, my notebooks are getting filled and in the middle of making a mood board which may end up on Pinterest of my first project. Think colours of a Peacock in silks and organza, pearls and crystals with glitter and feathers. Have I whetted your appetite? that is all you are going to get may let you into the mood board when done but no finished design will be shown until 2012.
As the festive season fast approaches remember to stay true to a 'Handmade Christmas' if possible and love your family and friends, treasure each moment with them.
