Merry Christmas all!

I hope you all had a fun, safe, happy and very merry Christmas! I shared a few photos of what I have been up to over the last couple of weeks.
This years tree with a custom star made by my 4 year old nephew Luke.

I got to meet lovely little Harry. Born in early december to my freinds Sean and Nicola. Such a beautiful little bundle of joy!

A few pics from Christmas day. The cake toppers were made by my sister who is a fantastic baker. Check out her website at

 Hanging out by the big tree in Winchester high street and a Christmas meal with friends.

Checking out the beautiful giant matchboxes in Pitfield, Winchester.

 We went for an amazing Thai meal at Koh Thai in Portsmouth with James' family.
The final creations from a children's workshop I helped my Mum with at The Colour Factory. Was a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed it.

Me and Luke did a spot of baking before Christmas. He decided on gingerbread cars and very carefully chose where each marshmallow and almond should go!

The day after boxing day we took a trip to my Auntie and Uncles farm in The New Forest. Was quite a beautiful day and nice to walk off a bit of the indulgent feasting we have all been doing over the last week! Aren't their cats adorable all snuggled up together!

Cozy Christmas present wrapping

Have just finished wrapping presents. Relieved to be done, just in time to head home to Winchester for Christmas. Can't wait to catch up with Winch friends and be with family. We have also been doing a bit of a furniture re-shuffle in our bedroom which is now much better organised.

A pattern just because...

I have been doing quite a lot of pattern work lately. A few project that unfortunately I can't show you at the moment so I thought I'd make one just for fun. This one reminds me of a dress I used to own.
There is something about pattern making that is so satisfying. I'm a bit hooked!

Friendmas 2013

Every year we get all the Bristol lot together for a Mini Christmas/Friendmas. Had a lovely day of food, drink, gift giving, party games, christmas hat making, a sing along and festive films. Sad it's over. Thanks Bill, Sam & Dave for the amazing meal!

Winter London

Last week myself and James went to London for a couple of days. The weather was lovely, really crisp and bright. We had a great time wondering around. Was lovely to not have to hurry anywhere like I usually tend to do on London visits. There is a fantastic Pop Art Exhibition on at The Barbican that I really loved, check it out if you get a chance. We also went to the V&A to see some originals by one of my favorite Illustrators, Emily Sutton
 A nice little holiday : )
