Happy New Year! Day One of Crazy Jan Challenge!


I hope you have all had a nice start to the year?

I just want to say thank you for all the birthday wishes yesterday, I had a lovely day and evening.

Once I got to my friends house more presents were waiting for me! There was certainly a theme going on...!

First, my dear friend Hannah treated me to a Cath Kidston travel sewing kit, how sweet is this!

Then, my wonderful friend Rachael indulged my love of stitching with this gorgeous Cath Kidston Stitch book! Ohhh there are so many things I want to make in this :)

Finally, my lovely friends Adam and Katherine treated me to a Cath Kidston Mug, along with a cookery book for all different kinds of cup cakes and a set of baking utensils!

Very spoilt indeed!

As ever Hannah's cooking was delicious - homemade Lasange followed by a homemade birthday cake, banoffee YUM!

We had a great night, and it went very fast, before we knew it it was almost time to watch Big Ben and the Fire Works on the tv.

Today, after sleeping off a headache (read hangover) I made a start on my Crazy Jan Challenge.

I picked the Home Sweet Home kit which came free with issue 188.

Until next time!
