WOYWW #187 - Christmas Presents

Happy New Year. I forgot it was a Wednesday again (thanks Brenda) so I just rushed upstairs to my craft table, took a photo and came down to have my breakfast (though for most of you it will be the middle of the day!).

I had two lovely crafting books, one Martha Stewart - Encyclopaedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts and Mollie Makes Christmas. Moo gave me a lovely little bag full of different ribbons and some different coloured cottons. The bar of Choclate is a present that never got given so I guess I will have to claim it as my own. Huffle bought me a gorgeous little case full of different coloured aluminium crochet hooks. There is some ribbon from PJ's and my ever so slowly increasing sock.

That's me done for today. Hope you all had a super Christmas and have a fabulous 2013. I have my Mum here visiting from England so forgive me if I don't visit as many as I should (always an excuse!).

Of course, I am here on WOYWW because of Julia and her wonderful world of desk hopping.

Lots of fabby gifts, those books should keep you quiet for a while! Great set of crochet hooks, I've seen knitting needles in sets like that and have been very tempted by them. Love Lindor choccies, are you sure it was gifted on purpose!! When Andrew was in England he brought back a big box of Thorntons Continental for us for Christmas, still the best in both out opinions. Hope you have a wonderful and crafty 2013.
