Oh wish I had added my reasons too *blush* I am glad you accepted the award x x you present it so much better than I!

Thanks for the comments, yes the slowing down bit suits me well at the minute hehe, I used to have a singer too, it was a table machine, huge clumpy thing lol, I made my eldest daughter a dress with it when she was 1 (she's 9 now) and that till now was the last time I used a machine ^_^

I will be collecting all sorts of ribbons etc ;) I already do for my other crafts but more so now! though I do like the mix of a crochet trim / Ribbon too.

My head is full of little embellishments and ideas, I just need to work out what to apply them to! lol

I am really drooling over the Christmas bread in the post below. My grandmother used to make the best Christmas bread and she is no longer with us. Perhaps next year, I'll give it a try. Thank you for your sweet words and for visiting me. I can't buy glass glitter in stores here. I have to order it online. On my sidebar- Pretty Petals or Little Pink Studio.
