Oh what fun ... Christmas and sewing makes!

Good Evening everyone!

I hope you all had a great Christmas!  We had a blast! James' girlfriend, Naomi, is over to stay for a while so it is quite odd having another woman in the house, but it is great! 

Here are a few photos from the day :D

As you know I was teaching the children at school to sew. Sew ... this is what we made :D  I feel so proud of myself that I taught the children to sew :D  It was such a 'hit' that I have now got a sewing club up and running for January!! I am so so  sew pleased with myself hehe ... excuse the pun!!

Crazy children

Conor, Katie and a penguin! 
We put our Christmas tree up at the weekend too!  I am in the process of putting all my cross stitched ornaments on too!  Here is one that a very good friend of mine stitched for me way back in 2008!!  I must say, its been a very long time since I was in a Round Robin or an Exchange so I think I might sort a few out for 2017!! 

I have done a few bits of sewing but as they are for gifts I cannot show you!!  I have been teaching the children in Year 5, at the wee ones school, to sew!  That was great fun!!

I am now in the process of setting up a sewing club at the school!  I'm really excited! 

Here is me looking very serious lol
I got my Christmas present early off Laura (my eldest) and her Hubby-To-Be Johnny ....

A craft work space in my bedroom!!
This is totally brilliant!!  Now, I can leave my machine (and mess!!) out and use it when I want too rather than keep moving everything so we can use the dining room table!!  WOW!!  I am totally delighted!!

No other news really!  Just busy busy busy getting organised for Christmas!!
Keep safe and well!!
