Getting organised

I always leave things like Christmas gifts till November and have a real panic of what to do for gifts. I like to take my time over people’s gifts and choose the perfect present for them. Obviously when I leave it till last minute I struggle and get stressed! So this year, I’m thinking about Christmas already….. And it is only February!! I will get organised for this year!

I like to make presents personal to each recipient and put a lot of thought into each one to make them individual. With that in mind, I have decided to make presents throughout the year and store them until the time comes to get festive and start the piles of wrapping.

I have been working on a blanket and cushion for one of my nieces. I’ve done lots of granny square blankets but this is the first time I have done it with hexagons. I was a bit nervous but it was really fun and came together well. I decided to do a cushion to match the blanket. It was another first for me as I haven’t done a cushion before but again it was a nice pattern and worked well.

I am so happy with the end result and can’t wait to wrap it beautifully for my niece to enjoy opening!
