More Birthday Presents

Well it's been a while since my last post but I have managed to finish a few items. January is a busy month for Birthdays for me, a couple of friends (made aprons for these but forgot to photograph them before I wrapped them) Mom, and Niece.

Here's what I made Grace.

I had to pick her up from school a couple of days after her Birthday and out she came running with her new bag in tow. At least I knew she liked it!

Since my last post I have managed to read all the Twilight books! This is unbelievable for me as I don't usually read only on holiday! Once I started I just couldn't put them down. Now I know what my daughter meant when she was reading them.

We have had an offer on our Villa in Spain so it looks like we will be holidaying elsewhere this summer. This thought made me realise that I need to do something about my weight, usually it's me and hubby in the pool, now it'll be a few others too and I have a few rolls to hide! For the last two weeks I have been exercising each morning on the Wii and I have lost 1/2 a stone!! I haven't even been dieting properly, still had a few chocolates every day and a glass of wine.

Well I'm off to do my 20 minutes crafting, Moms friend is going on holiday in a weeks time and needs a skirt shortening, not my favourite job but I'll have a go.

Oh I forgot I managed to make this owl out of an old pair of jeans and a scrap of material I had left over from my bunting.

I love that owl made from old jeans.

Selling you villa in Spain must have been a relief but sad at the same time.
