I got a few books for Christmas. Can't wait to get sewing. I've been at the In-laws all Christmas, so I've only been crocheting most of the time. Much more sociable as I can just about do it and hold a conversation/watch the telly. But now I'm home I have lots of bags to make. :-) now I just need a new sewing machine. My lidl one just keeps matting the thread. Best start saving my pennies though, totally skint. Thankfully big sis has lent me her machine - yaaaay! I'll let you know what I make once I've decided.
