Instead, the Christmas decorations came down, were packed away for another year, and we moped around mourning the end of a truly festive and relaxing season.
I did get a bit of sewing done however.
The winner of my blogiversary giveaway (Lorraine) requested a blue and green travel sewing pouch.
This will be making its way to USA this week, together with 10 Tula Pink fqs.
And one last Christmas present make I forgot to show you.
This is a bag for life I made mum. Most of the materials are recycled: a tea towel from Portugal (top), waterproof Irish linen offcut (bottom), and leftover Ikea fabric as the lining. Even the elastic strap is out of one of my girls' skrits!
Mum opened this present in front of my big sis, who has now put in her order for one!
