Happy New Years

 I was Caroline's Secret Santa in Chookyblue's Swap, I sent this ornament
a lovely little stocking, designed by my dear friend Helen of Hugs 'n Kisses
and the main gift was this cute little angel sewing tote
designed by Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse.
I enjoyed stitching these goodies, quick and easy!

If you get a chance visit Chookyblue's blog and have a look at all the pressies that were exchanged, it makes for good eye candy and inspiration.

So far these holidays Iv'e produced zilch, nothing, zero, not a thing!
I've come down with a nasty cold that had me bed ridden for the last day and half. I've managed to surface today and do a bit of washing and it looks like hubby might have caught my germs, he's having a lie down now. I don't think we'll be staying up until midnight it'll be early to bed for both of us.
Happy New Years Everybody!!

Oh sweetie, I hope you get better real soon! Mr E has also succumbed to a head cold, and my throat is sore today as well. Summer colds just aren't nice.
We both need to sit and stitch peacefully...perfect medicine.

Hi Jo, I really want to say again. That I'm very happy with your gifts. I really adore the bag. Every time when I look at it, it make me happy. I hope you soon getg well. I'm recovering from Hernia (X-mas I was in hospital), and I know it's boring when you can't sew. Today my granny is coming, and we're going to find out if I can sew apple corns laying on my back. Have a lovely new years eve, bye bye Caro
