Firstly, I just wanted to show you the amazing crochet 'stocking' my mum made for Joshua - how cute is that?
Now, onto some of the fab crafty Christmas gifts I received :)
Probably my favourite gift and one that has kept me quiet for many an evening (and afternoon!) is the Sew Laugh Love embroidery kit by Leanne Beasley.
I have been coveting a copy of this pattern for a while now and have snippets pinned on my Pinterest boards. I'm pretty new to embroidery so I'm enjoying working away on this, improving my skills and confidence as I go.
I also received the book 'Stitch and Sew Home' by Eline Pellinkhof. This is full of gorgeous projects, many involving cross stitch and/or pretty patchwork and little bits of crochet here and there. If you like Cath Kidston and Tilda then you'll like this book!
It's not a crafty gift, but my OH also got me a lovely red floral bag, it's not Cath Kidston but it's very similar and I love it :)
Perhaps the best gift of all is that we are re-working our study meaning I will soon have lots of storage shelves and a desk in there!! Cue lots of visits to IKEA over the Christmas break. (Lots of pics coming up once I've had a good tidy of my craft stuff!!)
