We survived :) and a lovely Christmas was had by all....Christmas Eve was spent with my family having a buffet lunch at mum's, stuffed ourselves silly and the baileys chocolate cheesecake was delish.... Santa came and visited us....
Presents opened, champagne drank and we were all ready at 1pm for lunch
it's what Christmas is all about, sat and watched TV and the Christmas soaps specials...
Boxing day is my favourite day, can't say I miss all the sales, here
it's not a bank holiday so alot of people have to work but we've stayed
in and chilled...Would I rather be reading quilting blogs or doing this
my DH did very well with my pressies this year, a bottle of champagne, a
magazine subscription to Quilt Country, a side winder bobbin winder,
it's great as the brother bobbins can't be wound on the Janome, so if I
forget to wind enough bobbins and the brother's on the frame its a
really hard job to rewind bobbins, the side winder is excellent as it
winds lots of different bobbins without being on a machine :) he also
bought me an electric extension cable on a special pull out winder thing
so I can plug the brother in on the frame and have enough cable so that
it doesn't tug on the power cable as i'm quilting and turn it off like
it did in the past.
Also got a really lovely clock, which DH has hung
in an unlogical place for people to see the time in the sewing space but
I asked him to hang it there as it's a fantastic place for me to see
the time while I'm actually sewing...see it's highly logical for me :)
Nadine at This Creative Bliss...lovely that it arrived today
Have just had our traditional boxing day lunch of bubble & squeek
(left over vegs and potatoes fried up) with stuffing/sausagemeat, ham,
turkey, baguette, anything and everything the children and ourselves
fancy. An hour later i've just managed to gobble some trifle and am now
full to burst.
Oh well, Turkey salad tomorrow, must be time for alcohol *Happy Boxing Day*
