Holiday Crafting...

[An alternative title? If Another Person Asks Me When I'll be Updating This Damn Blog, I WILL Scream!]

So Christmas and New Year came and went already? How is that possible? I seemed to have spent all of December in a feverish whirl of working, christmas-ing and present-ing, baking and sewing. One of the highlights? Hand-sewing. An opportunity for quiet contemplation at a crazy time of year. I had SO many hand-sewn gifts in mind but they didn't quite eventuate - still, what I did get finished included:

An amazingly gorgeous Weekender Travel Bag for my Mum - what a labour of love that was! But can you believe I forgot to take a picture of it!? Here's Mum OPENING her present....I'll try to get a photo up as soon as I can (Mum, can you please ask Amy to take one and email it to me? Pretty please?)

Santa Sacks for CJ and Harry-Pants:

And a little play Moses Basket for my niece:

We enjoyed a magical Christmas Day with family and friends and a few quiet days at the family farm before returning to the hustle and bustle of the big smoke...

And Stu and I enjoyed a night of luxury here for our 7th wedding anniversary this past weekend (thank you to my in-laws!) before heading back to work this week.

Hope your holiday season's been just as relaxing.
