I spent this morning pottering in my playroom out back. I sewed! I used my sewing machine and actually sewed! I'll show you more later.
First up my Geisha is growing. I have completed the top half of the chart, even the back stitch, and have finally made my way onto the lower half. I feel like I'm going down hill now.
 I've even started plotting what I may stitch next!
It's not been all about the stitching though. I've been baking too. These tasty little savoury treats always disappear quickly. 
 Before I could sew today I had to de clutter the play room! 
They met one of my needles!
 Once I had things a little tidier I pulled out a kit I've had stashed for a while.
It's an advent calender with little pockets to stow away daily treats.
 I also pulled out the lovely clover mini iron that my Hunney bought for me. It was perfect for pressing the hems under on the advent pockets.
 It's now waiting to be embellished. I'll take myself into town tomorrow and look for sequins and beads and any other little treasures that seem appropriate.
After a short break for lunch I pulled out my button tin, some tiny golden beads and some dress makers pins.
What do you think? 
I'm off to cross stitch.
