As of today I am closer to 30 than 20. That’s a scary thought!
My mum gave me lots of lovely presents – most of them sewing-related. I’m very happy 😀
So because it’s my day and I can do what I want, I have left the yucky baking washing-up and popped on here to share them with you like-minded sewing people!
I am now the proud owner of the Coco pattern! Hooray!
I will be using it very soon along with one of the knits I bought last week (probably the blue one).
And whilst we’re on the subject of the successes of The Great British Sewing Bee contestants – I have got Lauren’s ‘Learn to Sew with Lauren’ book. I really liked Lauren on the show. She reminds me of myself. Although she’s a better sewer! I think it’s just the blue eyes, blonde hair part of her… Oh, plus on one episode she messed something up and it made her cry – that’s something I would do if I was there!
This is a beautiful embroidery kit to make such a sweet purse. I’m so looking forward to starting this!
And look at this cuuuuute flower buttons – and some ever-so-practical dressmaking pins. You can never have too many of these. The last lot I bought had loads of blunt ones! I mean, they didn’t even have a point at all. Hopefully these will be better!
And last but definitely not least is this amazing sewing tin. Oh, the stuff I could stash in here…
My cake-monster of a daughter was not happy that it had no cake in, though. Luckily for her, she will get some later 🙂
Isn’t my mum the best?!
If you’re reading, Mum – again, thank you very much!!
I’m looking forward to see what else my birthday has to bring…
