I have missed not seeing any of my brothers, sisters in law or nieces or nephews, but thanks to the internet managed to open presents with them with skype :)
Here are some of my presents :)
Some lovely book, DVD's and a CD
A pretty tea cup and saucer, lovely watch, apple pot, heart decorations, hair flowers and some gorgeous earrings :)
A remote control for my camera and a camera cleaning kit (I feel like Harry Potter getting a broomstick servicing kit! haha)
Lots of lovely chocolate ... and how great is this box of Edward Monkton box of joy!
A lovely warm winter hat and pretty scarf.
And this great picture frame that I am really looking forward to filling with photos of all the people I love :)
I got a couple of crafty books ... one on tatting ... I had a go a while ago, but it was from a book that I got off eBay and kinda expected you to know how to tat already ... this book is far clearer and even has a DVD with it.
... and this lovely cross stitch book ... I love being inspired by antique samplers and this book is full of pictures and patterns that I will enjoy looking at :)
I wanted to show you these fab cards made by my sister-in-law and little nephew ...
Aren't they lovely :)
I am looking forward to having a really restful week and working on some samplers that I am trying to finish and just picking up some other half finished projects and working on them. Did you get any new crafty bits for Christmas ... something you haven't tried before perhaps? I would love to hear how you get on :)
