Keeping Secrets!

The last of my Secret Santa presents was gifted last night.

I keep my hands busy on free evenings with a little EPP, and before you know it, a nice wee panel has come together!

I recently acquired some 12wt Aurifil and wanted to see how it compared to Coats Creative threads. While it's not quite as thick as Coats Creative, it sewed these hearts beautifully with a size 100 needle.

I'm pleased to report that my notebook loving friend loved her present!  (for similar pattern see here).

And I finally sourced a super bright daylight bulb for my sewing room which means I can still photograph projects when I'm working in the evenings.

It is also my 5 year blogiversary today!!  I've been blogging for 5 years, and while blogging in general seems to have taken a hit through IG & other mediums, I still really enjoy doing it and will continue for as long as I still do.

It has completely snuck up on me this year, so I'm not prepared with my customary giveaway, but don't worry, I will have a little something special for you all in the new year!  Thank you for continuing to read my creative ramblings!

Only 5 more sleeps!!

  3. This is so adorable, Judith! I have to start to use my hexies for something else as I'm not inspired them at all now. I wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! x Teje
