2016 Free Boms

A new blogging year begins

I received lots and lots of lovely gifts at Christmas time including this amazing and wonderful array from my dear friend Barb as part of the Friends Having Fun Swap group.  
This was my 'under the tree' present for Christmas day and I am so in love with it.  Everything was so beautifully wrapped and it was very obvious a great deal of time and thought had gone into making each and every gift so wonderful. Thank you so much to dear Barb for making me feel very loved.
Many thanks to lovely Shez and sweet Peg for organising this brilliant swap. I've decided to have a swapping break in 2016 and do some more sewing for myself, friends and family.  But I won't be forgetting my blogging friends as I have plans for a whole bunch of 'just because' gifts too.
As you can see there have been some changes to my blog and there will be lots more to come so I do hope you will call back every day to see what's going on. Of course there will be a link to a free project every week day. On Saturdays I'll be sharing a Sweet Sentiment and Sundays are my excuse to post a picture of a cute sleeping animal as indulge in my Sunday Sleep In.

Something very sweet to start the year...this dear little Coin Purse pattern very kindly shared HERE at beautiful Torie Jayne.  If you love pretty things, and why wouldn't you, I'm sure you will have lots of fun soaking up all the gorgeousness Torie Jayne shares.
Hope your day is filled with happiness
Love
