And a little something extra, a travel sewing wrap
And I received this amazing one in return from Ethne at Flaming Stitches, it is unbelievably stunning, she is a absolutely amazing FMQer, you have to check out her work, serious talent! The colours and design are so beautiful, these pictures do not do it justice at all

Sorry for the massive post, cant believe quite how productive I have been, still a lot to do though, especially with my new Tutorial Tuesday linky party and writing a tutorial for it each week, time consuming but fun!

Check back on Tuesdays for Tutorial Tuesday and dont forget that To Do First is starting up on the 1st of Feb, hopefully it will keep us all organised so head back then to link up
