Awesome Brenda! What are you going to make with it? (and yes, the hook is awesome too)

I got the ultimate crafting present on Boxing day - my family all went away and left me in peace to get on with work, to do the really noisy stuff without them complaining, emerging from my workshop only to eat leftovers/ chocolate. Happy days (well for me it is). They are back tomorrow and I’ve got one portion of left overs remaining so I’ll be chaining them to the kitchen.

Not exactly a Christmas present, but I did well enough in my Christmas markets to be able to splash out on the super-expensive lap grinder I wanted, so I’ll be able to get on and do some polished glass pieces in the coming months. So pleased :slight_smile:

LOL…Stephie…no idea yet…I will need three Weetabix just to hold it…lol

One of the best presents I ever had was my request for a day in bed, like Lady Muck…everyone waited on me hand and food and I sat in bed watching dvd’s and eating chocolates.

PVA glue, cotton lace trim of which there’s quite a selection and some pretty bias binding was in a pretty tray for me from my SiL :smile:

500g of solder and a zip foot, bliss.

These lovely embroidery threads from Lorna Bateman on Folksy, and I have something in mind for them - watch this space!

I got a set of knitting wires with the screw on ends, heaven, lovely Husband, prompted by a good friend who also knits.

(Diane Burton) #16

I’ve recently got the crochet bug so Hubby bought me a lovely craft bag to keep my stuff together and added some lovely bright yarns, my daughter bought me a set of crochet hooks with lovely chunky non-slip handles (but not as big as yours Brenda!) and my son bought me a candle making set as I love candles.
