The best part about Xmas is the pressies, right? I did pretty well with making stuff this year, but bought stuff can be just as fun.....
I'm very proud my Little Miss went to Savers to buy my gifts- the BRIGHT orange handbag, an appropriate novel, and a visit to Smiggle for a phone holder (she was hoping to buy herself something while she was there, my good friend stopped her!)

She was given these gorgeous Babushka dolls from the Russian shop

I got a couple of kids movies....for me! Mousehunt is my all time favourite, I think, and Elf is pretty funny too.

Santa delivered a few books.

I meant to do this before Xmas, but things got busy, so last night I got the pot out, added 2 packets of Rit dye, and got this amazing result.....

it's so bright I need sunglasses! It will look a treat over my cream couch, I just hope it doesn't run on it. Maybe another hot wash just to be sure.
Hmm, I can see some more dyeing happening soon, so much fun!

The crochet tablecloth looks fab - so glad you decided to dye it after all!
I was cleaning up thismorning and guess what I found? Piping cord.

The red tablecloth looks great! What a lovely friend to help your little girl buy you presents.

I watched Elf just the other night and completely surprised myself at how much I laughed. I hope 2010 is a fabulous year for you and the family.
