Making Gifts and Happy Birthday to Me.

Hi Folks!

Last post I promised you a look at what I put those fat quarters too.

I've made two jar pin cushions for my two (crafty) colleagues at work.  I found the pattern here via Pinterest.
The little Kilner Jars came from The Range.  I followed the instructions pretty much but when I came to glue down the fabric I didn't trim it and glued it in the centre of the lid ~ the first time I glued it around the edge and it wouldn't then shut!

I used contrast fabric on the inside of the lid.
And filled with blue goodies to go with the blue fabric ~ unfortunately I couldn't get blue scissors. 

 You may have noticed three jars ~  the taller jar of the three is for me.

We've finished at school, which is just as well because I seem to be unable to even think at the moment, my brain has turned to mush.    We had a fabby meal out at a local pub.  We always have a secret santa and this year we had to find a present from a charity shop for £5.00.  I got this lovely christmas teapot.  I don't know who got it for me but they know me well, I always use a teapot. 
 It was my birthday on Saturday and we went over to see my Mum and Dad and have a curry.  They got me some perfume, which is great as I always wear perfume.  I've never tried this before, but I really like it.  Apparently Mum described me to the man on the perfume counter at Boots and this is what he came up with!
I was also given this felt ball mat by my lovely friend B.  I'm not sure where it will live yet, but wherever it is I will look at it every day, I love the colours.
 I've been decorating the house today and the Christmas tree went up yesterday.  I've left it very late this year as I haven't felt Christmassy.  This seems to be a problem for quite a lot of people I've spoken to, I blame the weather.  I've still got presents to wrap and a few to buy.

I'll be off now.
See you soon.............Clicky Needles

P.S.  The brain mush has rendered me totally incapable of knitting.  I am hoping to remedy this soon.


  1. What great presents - both the ones you made and the ones you received!

    I just decorated our tree today - very late here as well. It's been an odd December.

    Happy birthday! :)

  3. Belated Happy Birthday!

    School has now finished for me too, I can completely sympathise with brain mush syndrome - it has been a very long term.

    I love your pincushion jars, a great idea for me to make next year perhaps!


  4. belated happy birthday!!! mine birthday was on thursday.

  5. I blame the weather too! It was so mild for so long, Christmas sort of crept up. Your pincushion jars are great, and it's handy to know that The Range stock them - always good to have an excuse to go for a browse!
