For Christmas I was given an amazing book full of ideas for handmade items. It’s really great and I’ve had big plans to do some of them, even getting my mum to re-teach me how to knit and crochet. That’s not gone so well, but I have made some lovely little flower brooches out of old material with a button in the middle and plan to make a patchwork cushion cover, too.

Sadly our computer is having a bad time at the moment so no pictures to show yet, but I will upload a few soon. I’ll also put up some pics of the jewellery I made for friends for Christmas (obviously couldn’t put that up before Christmas as they might have seen!).

My husband has just done his annual financial review and it appears me making presents for friends hasn’t made that much difference to our finances yet, but I’m pretty sure I saved money on Christmas presents. Hoping my friends don’t mind receiving handmade gifts…
