Handmade gifts

I made these coasters for my Dad for Christmas and they were very well received. He uses the travel organiser I made him last year regularly and promises to do the same with these.

The other gifts I made were mainly chutneys, as I made 8 batches this year using the vegetables we grew,  and also made some Christmas cakes.

Another little handmade gift will appear soon.....

I got an Accuquilt for Christmas and have been having fun. So far I've sewn half the rows but haven't joined them together yet.

Post Christmas

We've had a relaxing time and are enjoying time at home. The furry creatures are chilling as well.....

Merry Christmas

I've been meaning to write a post for ages but never found the time.  Life has been busy since my last post. Yesterday was the second anniversary of my accident yesterday and although I'm not yet back to normal yet I have made good progress. I was discharged from both the hospital and Physio in July. I then did an 'exercise referral' at a local gym and now go regularly.

Knitting and sewing has been going on but I can't share any photos yet so instead have a peek at the basket of chutney I made for my Secret Santa gift at work.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas.
