Wintry Winchester

It has been a really lovely Christmas, the girls have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were showered with presents galore. As I sit writing this Mr.Bobbin is attempting to make balloon animals with them (an inspired present from their great auntie!) - I wish you could all see this, they are pretty unimpressed so far, tough audience! 

I was lucky enough to receive a number of things from my wish-list including two Sublime Stitching books and the gorgeous Fa La La La Felt book - I can't wait to get back into the craft room!

Today I finally managed to escape for a few hours and what a better jaunt out to recharge the batteries than a trip to Cath Kidston! Our nearest outpost is the lovely market town of Winchester which plays host to a number of my favourite shops. 

The Old Faithful!

I love all the little side streets and the fact that the beautiful Cathedral is right in the centre of the "city".

A gem of a Craft Shop - sadly closed today!
The Oldest House in Winchester
Yep - that's old!
I managed to come home LADEN with clothes for the little Bobbins and nothing more than two little fabric badges for myself which will soon be adorning the family picnic blanket!

I'm going to spend the next few days negotiating the war zone that is my craft room - the rush of orders in the run up to Christmas has taken it's toll on its usual "relative" order and tidiness. My goal is to get it back to its former glory and get some pictures taken to post so I can give you all a tour! 
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! XX

Looks like you had a nice day. Weather is miserable here. I'm off to a wedding tomorrow, this is my second one within a week so I would much rather be at home

All things nice...

2 weddings during the Christmas break is hard work - you must be exhausted! Hope it's not too cold for you today. x
