I didn't go out tonight, but I've accidentally sat up sewing until 2am, so don't say I'm not rock and roll! Though I am now looking forward to filling up my hot water bottles (yes, bottles, plural) putting on some much needed hand cream (ouch) and getting into bed with the cats... It's too dark to take a photo of what I've been sewing, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to share someone I've been admiring on etsy lately. This super gorgeous print is by Lisa Stubbs and is just one of so many lovely, lovely items. May I particularly draw your attention to this completely adorable Christmas postcard. Eep! Dear Santa, I want to be as good as Lisa at drawing and printing and sewing!

I have been brewing some top arty/crafty plans for 2011, setting some little challenges for myself, and I'm feeling pretty excited about it. I think 2011 will be a great year of craft for me. I'm hoping to be learning a whole load of new skillz as well as revisiting and honing some old (and often long-neglected) skillz. And, of course, I'll be sure to blog about the whole shebang. More details to follow, but for now, to bed.


  1. I can't wait to see what you come up with! I'm hoping to take a dressmaking course in the New Year so I want to make 2011 all about that! :)

  2. I'm hoping to learn to sew clothes too, though I think I have said that for the last few years... We'll see! Hope you enjoy your course :)
