And a happy new year! I hope you all have time to do something you like over Christmas :)
Yesterday was lovely. I had a sewing machine!! Well excited about that, does anyone know of any blogs with sewing tutorials on? I've not used one before so I'm looking forward to doing new projects and learning as I go. There is a dressmaking for beginners course run by the centre where I attend my knitting course, but it's 15 weeks long and it's going to be too difficult for me to rearrange all my shifts in work so that I can attend them all.
I also had a brilliant knitting solutions book (I'll get the proper name soon) which is written by an experienced knitter and is basically full of answers and solutions to problems knitters may come across. I've only had a quick flick through but it does look great - a brilliant Ravelry alternative if I can't get online as well!
I made a chocolate log yesterday, I'll post a picture soon. It looked pretty good (even if I say so myself!).
Unfortunately 3 out of the 4 of us are ill with something, but it's still nice to be home even if I am ill!
Merry Christmas xx
