Recovering and looking forward to 2013

We had a great Christmas, tree fairy PJ's and quilts were  received with much excitement (still not got a piccie of Amelia's winterkist) on Christmas Eve

Then santa arrived and left us lots and lots of goodies,only slight problem was my DS (8) woke up at 3am for the toilet, realised santa had stuffed their stockings, couldn't or wouldn't go back to sleep and woke poor old mummy up at 4.30ish, he opened his little stocking and we watched a film while waiting for Amelia to wake up at 7.30am, lol I definitely needed lots of coffee in the morning.

We ate our Christmas dinner, but just before Amelia was determined to get sewing... first I made her stitch on paper and then she got busy with fabric, 1/2 inch seams but they met in the middle when we joined 4 together !!! way to go eh

My santa delivered Bernice, she sat in her box until yesterday but I tidied up the sewing room, put the Janome away and tried to put fabric and goodies somewhere.  I did have a quick sew on her and she is a joy, a perfect 1/4 " seam with the special foot,no probs.

I was a very lucky girlie, Aurifil, Summersville fabric, tape and a mug :)
Bernina feet, a rotating cutting mat, pins for quilting frame, wonder clips and yup two proper books, Modern quilters from the blogging universe is a great book, really lovely quilts from our favourite bloggers, Simply charming mini's is also great, little quilts which I think may be being made in 2013.

DH found me a vintage tin with lots of little goodies inside, buttons, wooden spools with threads, ribbon, pins, he really put some thought into my presents this year, I do love him so :)

Finally, my win from Ellyns Place what a gorgeous basket of yumminess, some fabric squares, buttons, a lovely basket, pot holder, pin cushion, crochet runner, such a lovely win :)

And now, I'm looking forward to 6 days of injections into my bum :O( morning and night, painkillers and anti inflammatories, my back has been bad since my 8 year old was born, I blame the epidural failing but I've got used to the niggling, the waking up with back ache, sitting and getting up with backache but the last few months it's been getting worse, I've been stuck on the loo 3 times in the last 5 or 6 weeks, It does get worse with sitting by the sewing machine but my saddle chair helps and I think I just need to get up and about more, sitting kills but standing isn't so bad, perhaps I need to iron lolol... and today was agony, so off to the docs.  He thinks I've got crumbling vertebrae and so x rays and physio may follow.

I'll be back soon,

Pip xx

  1. Merry belated Christmas!!! Looks like you and the family had a lovely time! Wonderful pressies too! Loving Bernice and the pink sewing machine! 6 days of injections ouch!!! Hope all goes well, we don't want you stuck on the loo again ;)

  2. It does look like you had a great day, other than the really early hour, and you received lots of goodies. I too hope your back is better quickly. Being in pain all that time sounds really rough.

  3. Looks like you had a wonderful time - enjoy your machine and all the other lovely things!

  4. What a wonderful Christmas. Hope the back improves in 2013
