I love being a Christmas Eve baby ’cause I get two days filled with presents, one right after the other 🙂 Very often a theme seems to emerge from my gifts. Last year’s was ‘gardening’ and this year, it was ‘sewing.’ As I’m going to be away from the garden for a while after my surgery, this is probably just as well!
My best sewing gift came from my sister and her fiancee. I’ve been working with my grandmother’s old machine which has served me well to learn on. But I’m now the happy owner of a Janome which even does free motion quilting. Not that I have the first idea how to do said quilting but, hey, I don’t know how to sew on a button either!
I also have lots of other tools to try out (some of which I’ve been playing with already today), a beautiful bench for the garden and a lovely new printer which will actually work with my Mac. So it’s been an excellent Christmas for me this year. How was yours?
