It's Christmas Eve and we are all ready and waiting for the big day....although I had my big day a little early. My wonderful husband bought me a new machine for Christmas - a Pfaff Creative Sensation Pro. To say I am excited is the biggest understatement ever!!! I don't really know all what my new machine can do - I understand the sewing side of it, but I have never used an embroidery machine, luckily I get lessons from the dealer on that part of it :) I can't wait until the New Year and my lessons to see just what amazing things can be done with this machine....this video has got my brain ticking and I'm sure I'll need lots of practice but you can get the idea :)
I also wanted to share a couple of projects I made for Christmas presents. My sister was talking to me about a doorway puppet theatre for my nieces, so I made one up for them. I hope they love it, I would've loved something like this when I was small. It has a wooden pole through the top and it can hang off hooks in the doorway...and when you are not playing with it, it simply rolls up and doesn't take up hardly any room :)
I also made a teddy bear for a cousins little boy Harry. Harry is 3, that wonderful age when they really 'get' the magic of Christmas. We had lots of the family over on Saturday to catch up and I had to have a present for little Harry.....so 'HarryBear' was born. I used some fab material I've had for a while now and I think it lends itself very well to the bear pattern. Harry was certainly thrilled with his bear and I was thrilled that he loved it so much :)
I can't wait for tomorrow - there are still some great surprises for the rest of the family and it's going to be a wonderful day :)
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas with your families and/or loved ones.
See you in 2014!!!!
