Reading every one elses blogs it looks like you all had a great new year celebrations. I saw in the new year catching up on those unfinished projects of 2012. I didn't want to carry anything forward into 2013!
What with opening my unit at Custard Hall virtually unplanned at the beginning of December my making was all focused on restocking there. I had some ideas for things for the jammers but clean ran out of time before the big day. Little Jammer was more than happy with her hedgie home and I've been topping up the leaves this week. In the garage I had a printers tray I wanted to give her with a particular purpose in mind. Despite Eldest Jammer and I wallpapering the back on Christmas Eve it just didn't get done.
So New Years Day brought an extra homemade present under the tree for each of my girls along with apologies from a well meaning but disorganised mum.
You may not have realised from the photo above but Little Jammer's printer's tray is actually a stylish storage solution for her growing Moshi Monster collection. For those of you without children of this age, Moshi Monsters are small
hideous bright plastic tat figures your parents waste spend their money on as rewards for spelling tests, new reading level, and the like.
Today we put it up in her bedroom and it was quickly filled with Moshis. A Moshling Zoo apparently.
You can never have enough Moshlings!
I showed you this sneaky peak of some patchwork a few days ago.
Finally I added some light padding and backed it in a spectacular purple sheet from the charity shop and by midnight I'd finished sewing the buttons on to turn it into a quilt for Eldest Jammer.
She's very much a fan of bold and bright prints so I knew she would love it. Trying to get a suitable ta-dah photo proved tricky due to the appalling state of her bedroom. I don't know where she gets it from, ahem! So this will do for now until we've had a serious bedroom tidy.
And for anyone else feeling left out and wanting their bit of vintage wallpaper loveliness I finished off this bookcase.
it found it's way to my shop today!
Happy New Year to each and every reader. I've loved reading your comments over the year, please keep them coming.
And to those who signed up today, thanks for joining the ride into 2013. Let's hope it's a pretty and colourful one!
