I found this really neat long lead clip on light for £1.99 from a cheap shop and as all my lights for some weird reason are on one side of the room,  this will make hand sewing on the sofa so much easier. All in all with the light bulb I spent £2.38... BARGAIN!
I have seen the sewing lights in magazines before and this is definately a cheaper option.

Snuggly snail

A little snuggly patchwork snail, one of my God daughters christmas pressies.

Again, the pictures are just horrible, they look really nice on my phone screen, I think I need to invest in a new phone.

Hand sewing.

I never really get the chance to just sit and sew, if I'm at my machine Zippy gets on the table and if I sit and hand sew Millie does a really good parrot impression... it's a good job I love them.

A game of pairs

I used felt and some lovely kiddies fabric. I cut a 2.5" piece of felt and a 2" piece of fabric, then another piece of felt and using pinking shears cut out a window. Then I sewed them all together.
There are 48 in total, 2 for each pocket on the advent calendar.

It will be for my smallest niece and nephew.
