Good evening! I hope you're all enjoying a happy and relaxing holiday so far. I certainly am - when I haven't been stuffing my face or making Lego spaceships, I've been playing with my wonderful new sewing-related Christmas gifts. Here's what I was lucky enough to receive:
This was from my son - bought with his own money - what an angel!
My husband stunned me into speechlessness with the thoughtfulness of his gifts:
First up, a leather zip pouch with a vintage pattern printed on the front
|...and here's the back|
Some vintage buttons he managed to track down, in all my favourite colours
Fine dressmaking shears, to make up for the ones he completely blunted a few weeks ago. We'll say no more on the subject...
OK, the next one isn't sewing related, but I like his thinking. He thought I might like the dress that the poor bludgeoned victim is wearing on the front cover of this 1954 Agatha Christie classic. And he was right, I DO like her dress. And her lippie. I also happen to love crime fiction too, so this will make perfect Christmas holiday reading.
Even my mother-in-law was on top present-buying form. She said she saw this book in the V & A gift shop and thought of me. The ultimate compliment.
I'm extremely lucky to have such a thoughtful and generous family. I LOVE my gifts! How about you? Did anybody else receive awesome sewing gifts for Christmas? x
