Do you wanna See??

I got all these sewing essentials for Christmas and there were some other varieties amongst some other packages - Ooh - and I got these pretties to play with.. gorgeous fabric and thread.
And since Christmas Santa has been on the sewing agenda as I am participating in the Holly Jolly block swap over at AuntPittyPats - I am in the bright non traditional group and I really do like bright.
The above design is a freeby from the talented Joy over at Joy Patch - thanks. As this is what I did for most of Boxing Day - I can imagine that Santa needs to sleep for a few days too - I just visited family and friends not every person!
The below design comes from a childrens colouring sheet and is just perfect - I need to do Santa and Elves pics.
Of course it was nice to have a few days away from the daily grind to just play with needle and thread whenever I liked. More stitching on the agenda for me tonight - I have a deadline to meet.
I hope you have all had creative opportunities in between the celebrations.
Happy Crafting

Hope your sewing essentials will last for a bit of sewing! Love the Santa blocks, especially the colors. What are you going to dot with them?

Lovely things. I love the DMC variated threads.

And mmmmm, chocolates! :o) Yummy, but not so good for the diet.

Happy New Year! x
