Last blogpost of 2010 - picture heavy

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I thought you might like to see some of the stash/hand-crafted presents I recieved. The threads are from Clare and Karan, and the beautiful stained glass angel is from Barb (her very talented husband made it)
This wonderful exchange gift came from Suzanne (no blog). The little frog is sitting in my study now, keeping his friends away!
Neither stash nor handcrafted, but so exciting that I had to include it was this gift from the girls. David Tennant. Patrick Stewart. Shakespeare. Whats not to swoon over?
And here is a picture of some of the crafty things I gave as presents, which I couldn't show before Christmas
The scarves are knitted with Rico Pompom, and the sets of coasters are made from upcycled denim and fabric scraps, and were inspired by this tutorial

Finally it only remains for me to wish you all a Very Happy and Healthy New Year

There is nothing like a handmade gift any time of the year. I am sure your friends and family loved the adorable scarves and coasters. Your gifts you received were wonderful too.

I hope you are anxious to start another wonderful year of stitching. I wish you a 2011 filled with inspiration!
