Santa’s pressies

IMG_0057a

Was Santa good to you?  I had a wonderful surprise on Christmas Day when I opened my presents from Dilly.  I was so delighted to find this excellent book by Kelli Perkins and two beautiful pieces of fabric.  Some time ago I received an envelope from Kelli when she was de-stashing so I was overwhelmed to receive this book from Dilly and Helena.   I have had a bit of a look through the book and Kelli has been very generous with her ideas.  It is a lovely book and will give me lots  ideas for mixed media projects.

Isn’t this batik stunning?

And this one!  I shall have to find a very special project for these beautiful fabrics.  Thank you so much Dilly :o) You are a very generous wagon and very thoughtful. xx

I am feeling a bit lacklustre at the moment and very disinclined to blog.  I’m sure it’s just the time of year and I’ll soon be back to normal.  Until then please forgive me for being rather brief.  Just in case I don’t get back to blog before the special day I wish you all a very Happy New Year with good health, wishes coming true, happy family days and lots of creativity.  If you have health worries that you are taking forward then I hope that you will find the strength and support to carry you through to renewed vigour.  Happy New Year and thank you for your friendly support this year.  I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to look in here. I am hurtling towards 600 posts so I will soon be offering a little gift (once I’ve finished it!). xx

I think lack lustre perfectly describes this in between time of year! Hope you feel a bit more lustrous soon Julie.

I have got a copy of that book and it is great for just picking up and putting down, full of information.
I haven't blogged for a while, guess I feel a bit like you. I'm sure your blogging mojo will return soon.
Happy New Year to you and yours.

The batik looks fabulous. Have a very Happy New Year, I hope 2010 is full of art for you.

I know how you feel Julie and am a bit like it myself having just caught another cold. I have seen that book advertised and been tempted to look for it on Amazon. The batik fabric is gorgeous and the other one is just as beautiful in a more restrained way. Keep warm and free from winter germs - Happy New Year.

Lovely goodies, Have a great New Year :-)

Oh yes - I've had that lacklustre feeling too and have just started coming out the other side. In my case, I'm sure it's to do with rather a lot of overindulgence!!

Wishing you a very Happy and Healthy New Year :)
