There was lots of good news to be included in this post.
1) One of my winnings from the sew mama sew give away arrived.
So that made me very happy.
And, (drumroll) I have got a new laptop in the sales
So, there was a lot to celebrate.
And then I actually got down to some sewing after a fortnight off for Christmas..... and my machine is not happy. (perhaps it feels replaced by the laptop?) The tension just wouldn't go right and I kept getting clumps of cotton knotted as I sewed. So, it's going to be a phone call to find someone to service it tomorrow, and those handmade January birthday presents might be a bit last minute.
