Christmas Round-up

We had a lovely Christmas Day with family and friends, ate way too much food and got very spoilt with gifts. Hubby bought me the Amy Butler Softwares program for the computer - 22 sewing projects plus 9 bonus ones for quilts, table runners, bags, pillows and more! I am yet to find a spare moment to sit down and really take a good look at it, but love all the projects from what I have seen so far! I also got some books and a gift voucher to Spotlight which has been spent (almost) on new quilting rulers, blades and other gadgets that I wouldn't have bought for myself before.I am this week getting busy for the first market of 2010 which is this Sunday at Red Cliffs. A local market for us that runs the first Sunday of every month and my only regular monthly market in my area. I have had hubby busy with his power tools helping me to get my buttons permanently on snap clips - as glue just isn't a strong or secure hold for holding buttons on snap clips and wire becomes loose - so after a bit of trial and error we have it - a permanent hold that wont ever fall off! So the first new product for 2010 is these gorgeous button snap clip sets - available at this Sunday's market and online in my madeit store Sunday night.
I will also have the first of my Winter items available come the end of January and maybe some sneak peaks before then depending on how busy the coming weeks are for us.

I must get back to the machines now - I completely sold out of dresses before Christmas and must get busy getting my stocks back up!
