Hello dear blog-friends, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are well stuffed now.
Our Christmas was a grown-up affair, Christmas Eve supper at my parents, a huge family feast on Christmas day prepared by Mr. Bloom and myself (with both of us in the kitchen, a few sparks flew but all was well in the end), and Boxing day at Mrs. Bloom Senior's.
Lovely though it was, I'm quite glad to have the day at home with just the two of us today.
I was back at work this morning (I work part-time early mornings) and at 8.30 after work I rushed to buy the one thing I wanted to get in the sales:
I had my eye on these before Christmas and had contemplated asking Mr. Bloom to buy them for me but I suspected they would be reduced straight after so decided to take a chance. Sure enough, there they were today, half price. I didn't stay in town, I can't abide the crowds at sale time and I'm happy enough with these.
I also did a bit of shopping at Cath Kidston online as she has her sale on now.
Man, was her website ever slow, were all of you on there today as well? I ordered these because they were half price too (I do like a bargain!):
This afternoon while Mr. Bloom was happily settled watching a Bond movie, I retired to my sewing room for some crafting.
I have my PC in this room as well and having recently discovered BBC iPlayer, I could watch a couple of TV programmes I missed over Christmas.
First Dr. Who (I don't normally watch it but wanted to see the Christmas special as Kylie Minogue was in it - I'm not particularly a fan of hers either, but somehow the combination of the two appealed to me).
Second, Ballet Shoes, which was delightful, I'm going to watch it again after I've posted this as I was bit distracted with sewing.
As for the crafting, I thrifted this little knitted bunny a while back with the intention of giving it a makeover.
Armed with a pile of fabrics and trimmings I got to work.
I lined her ears as she had a Paul Smith logo in one of them which I wasn't so keen on. Then I used the same fabrics for her dress, and pads on her feet. I think she should be quite pleased with her new outfit.
She's also made friends with my other thrifted floppy-eared bunny. I think they look rather sweet together.
In case you're wondering, I don't collect bunnies, I just happen to have a few of them. I'll get them all together one day and post them. I'm off to tackle the turkey leftovers now, hope you enjoy the rest of the week!
