So that is another Christmas over! Now to get on with some real life!
I was lucky enough to receive some gorgeous presents from family and friends and just a few were to do with my crafting hobby: a lovely huge self sealing Fiskars board and some new Fiskars rotary cutters and a lovely stack of Japanese fat quarters. I shall really enjoy using these.
|They are all so beautiful!|
Even more exciting news is that now Christmas is over I am going to be getting a whole new sewing room all to myself as Mr Whizz Kid is moving his stuff out of his dressing room into a larger room just vacated by The Devil Child. My little corner (pic below) has now outgrown its space and is spreading to all corners of the room and so (joy of joys) I shall now be able to make as much mess as I like, leave it, and then just shut the door in my new room!

Trying to decide on my priorities is difficult - my friend today says an ironing board is the first essential (I hate ironing) and I guess she is right but it was not even on my list although it certainly should be. My list looks like this so far ...
Good view of the garden
Large flat area for cutting
New sewing machine !
Radio (for radio 4)
Lots of drawers
Lots of shelves
'Set' for photos
Day bed ??
All this in a rather small bedroom! Do tell me what you think is the most important and colour suggestions would also be most welcome.
Wow! That really was a long post.
