Happy new year!!

Happy 2008 to everyone, I hope you all had good christmas' and time off. Everything seems to be getting back to normal now after two weeks that have passed in a flash, and I have even managed to start some new projects. Our christmas went well except that I didn't feel too well for most of it, I've only felt better for the past couple of days really. Which is a shame but at least I wasn't bad enough to need to be in bed or anything. I've had some lovely times with Holly, watching christmas films, playing with her mountains of presents and some sales shopping too. We have visited family and had family and friends to stay with us, its been a bit of a whirlwind here but a very welcome one as we got to see and spend time with everyone we don't see enough of! And I might get my husband back a bit now too, he works in retail so christmas is his busiest time, I always forget how little I see of him in December. This picture is of the wonderful pieces of fabric my sister got me for christmas, which one shall I use first? Decisions, decisions. And here is my newly tidied felt stash, I don't think it will stay this way for very long, it already isn't as tidy as it was yesterday... And this is a new purse with a not-to-over-the-top valentine theme, soon to be in my etsy shop. And finally another work in progress waiting for me and my needle! : )

Lovely felt colours, start with the flowery fabric and how do you cut your circles so neatly! It is a bummer being ill over Christmas, I only managed to dodge it with a course of anti-biotics and an inhaler!!
Happy(plenty of stitching) New Year.
