|Me with my shiny new camera!|
Next up, here's my business cards. I got them from Vistaprint if anyone wants to get any. They've got lots of offers on and seemed the best deal for me anyway. They're on recycled paper with a matt finish.

Next we have the pretty embroidered sew in labels from Woven Labels UK as before. I chose navy lettering this time as wanted a change from the green. I didn't go for any motifs on there as they didn't have a bird and because not everything would look right with a sewing machine or needle and thread on as it's not appropriate to what it is. So these suit me just fine.

Ok, so I caved! I've joined the gang and got the book! I was really impressed when I sat and looked through it in the shop and was even more impressed when I got it home and realised that the patterns weren't on paper but proper pattern paper. I hope to work my way through this book, possibly in sewing class as the teacher has told us we can do what we want, even dress making if that's what we want and she'll help! Woo Hoo!
And because I'm really super dooper impressed with my new toy, here's a picture of a flower when I was trying the camera out

Even though I managed most of my New Year make list I posted in January I'm not going to make any resolutions, I won't stick to them as will rebel against the structuring. What I will say is that I hope to get some use from the sewing patterns and books I've acquired this year along with the fabric I have in my stash and will definitely do more stalls and try and keep my etsy shop upto date as it's sadly neglected at the moment.
Here's wishing you all a happy and prosperous New Year! Happy New Year!
