Post Christmas Catchup!

Christmas came ...

teenagers both in the house, peeled unquestionably, slept in ...


allowing himself and I a very rare peaceful breakfast before he went off to visit his daughter ...

 presents, children, lots of love and ...


lots of laughter!

they left, the dinner went on and the bottles opened,
my mother arrived drank, ate, opened and left ...

and we had a little more time to exhale  :) 

I'm still trying to work out what day of the week it is, and am in that post mayhem CBA (can't be arsed) mode

There are one or two makes that I never got to show you (some I still can't for now)

a couple of last minute gifts



I confess I was still finishing this one off for himself on Christmas Day! 
Shocking I know :) 

And then I headed off for a couple of days, no Internet, no sewing machine, I just couldn't go without SOME stitching ... could I?


it's coming along!


meet Brian!  gifted to me by a friend at work, who also made the most amazing Angel that sits in the studio, she's such a clever lady ....

So, that's us pretty much caught up, all's quiet here, a little stitching each day, and I'm itching....
yes.... itching to start something new, but I know I shouldn't

not yet!

I'm slowly getting more blog reading done, but not much commenting, I'll get back in the swing of it soon   :) 

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and Santa brought you all you were hoping for, along with a few special surprises too!  If I don't get a chance to say it before hand Happy New Year!

Love Brian! He's very funky.
Referencing The Magic Roundabout?? I had a soft toy bunny I had named Dylan who ended up rather tatty.

That is called just in time production I think and is favoured by the Japanese I think! Glad you enjoyed it and the makes may have been last minute but no less beautiful!
